SUPER BOWL VII
Bass is most remembered for recovering a fumble by the Miami Dolphins’ kicker Garo Yepremian and returning it for a touchdown in Super Bowl VII, one of the most memorable plays in NFL history.
Super Bowl VII-Miami Dolphins vs Washington Redskins
Two other NFL teams before the Dolphins had finished a regular season undefeated, but both the 1934 and 1942 Chicago Bears lost in NFL Championship Games. Since 1972, only one team, the 2007 New England Patriots went through the regular season undefeated, but lost in Super Bowl XLII.
Dolphins safety Jake Scott recorded two interceptions and was named the Most Valuable Player of the game. The only Redskins score came after a botched field goal attempt by the Dolphins, where the kick was blocked and bounced back to placekicker Garo Yepremian. In one of the all-time blooper plays, Yepremian's forward pass attempt bounced off his helmet, and then he batted it up in the air, where Washington's Mike Bass intercepted it and ran it back for a touchdown.

On offense, the Dolphins utilized a punishing ground attack, led by Larry Csonka and Mercury Morris, both of whom gained over 1,000 yards rushing on the season. This marked the first time in league history that two teammates rushed for over 1,000 yards each in the same season.
