EPISODE SUMMARY

The NFL saw two of its muddiest playoff games of all time during the decade of the 1970s. In 1970, the Miami Dolphins played on a certifiable quagmire at the Oakland Coliseum, and in 1977, the Minnesota Vikings competed against the Rams at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on a field that could be aptly described as a drenched bog. Both of those stadiums had a natural grass surface, and when water mixed with those fields, a sopping mud was the visible result.
