Best Answer

Since the National Football League created a playoff structure in 1932, the only team to go undefeated through a full season is - as is well known, the 1972 Miami Dolphins. The 1972 Dolphins went 14 and 0 in the regular season and won their three post-season games to finish 17 and 0.

Three other teams have had undefeated regular seasons since 1932: the 1934 and 1942 Chicago Bears and 2007 New England Patriots (whose deriders called the "Cheatriots" because of the "Spygate" controversy). The 1934 and 1942 Bears were both beaten in the NFL Championship Game, finishing 13-1 and 11-1 respectively; whilst the 2007 Patriots won two games to be 18-0 before being upset in Super Bowl XLII by the New York Giants. In the process the 2007 Patriots achieved a start that has never been managed even in the long-season sports of baseball, ice hockey or basketball.

Have the NFL New England Patriots ever had an undefeated regular season?

Yes, the Dolphins in 1972 went undefeated during the regular season and won the Super Bowl. The 1934 and 1942 Chicago Bears went undefeated during the regular season but lost the NFL championship game both seasons. The Patriots just finished the 2007 regular season undefeated. The question was "Was there ever and undefeated NFL Season?" If you're referring to a regular season AND championship win...there was only one...the 1972 Miami Dolphins. If you're referring to and undefeated regular season only...four teams have done this...they are: 1943 Chicago Bears 1942 Chicago Bears 1972 Miami Dolphins 2007 New England Patriots Both of the above answers are inaccurate. The first team to go undefeated through an ENTIRE NFL SEASON and win the CHAMPIONSHIP was the Green Bay Packers in 1929. Curly Lambeau was their coach. The Dolphins were the 2nd team to do it, 43 years later, without resorting to any ties (NFL had tie games in those days and the Packers had 1 tie). The Packers and Dolphins are the ONLY teams to ever accomplish an undefeated NFL Championship.
