It's hard to argue with perfection.

The 1972 Miami Dolphins have been selected the greatest NFL team in "The Great Sports Debates," a series that celebrates 125 years of The Sporting News.

The 2007 New England Patriots went from almost certainly being atop that list to nowhere in the top 10.

But the 2004 New England Patriots were ranked eighth.
  1. 1972 Miami Dolphins
  2. 1984 San Francisco 49ers
  3. 1985 Chicago Bears
  4. 1978 Pittsburgh Steelers
  5. 1962 Green Bay Packers
  6. 1958 Baltimore Colts
  7. 1992 Dallas Cowboys
  8. 2004 New England Patriots
  9. 1977 Dallas Cowboys
  10. 1976 Oakland Raiders
