Csonka was magnificent, rushing for 145 yards on 33 carries.
January 13, 1974
Houston, Rice Stadium

After building a 17-0 lead, the Dolphins forced a Minnesota fumble on a fourth-and-one play at the Miami 6-yard-line at the end of the first half. That basically sounded the death knell for the Vikings. Csonka was magnificent, rushing for 145 yards on 33 carries as Miami devoured the Purple People Eaters. The Miami rushing game was so dominant that Dolphins quarterback Bob Griese threw only seven passes, completing six. As Minnesota quarterback Fran Tarkenton said after the game, Miami "played as nearly perfect a game as a team can play."
