The Miami Dolphins crush the St. Louis Cardinals 31-10 in their lone appearance on Monday Night Football during their perfect season. The Dolphins played sluggish football in the first half at the Orange Bowl but pulled away in the third quarter to improve to 11-0 on the season. Seldom used, Otto Stowe has the game of his life, with 140 yards on six receptions, scoring two touchdowns for Miami. The story heading into the game was a less than warm reception for ABC announcer Howard Cosell who received death threats over his lack of coverage for the Dolphins during their unbeaten season.
