1998 Minnesota Vikings (15-1)

The Vikings were a viable powerhouse in that 15-1 season, amassing 556 points (predating the '07 Patriots), registering 12 blowout wins and dismantling the opposition by 16.2 points per game. Perhaps more impressive, the offense didn't really click until after QB Randall Cunningham took over in Week 3 (due to a Brad Johnson injury). Of course, Minnesota 's championship hopes were dashed by Atlanta in the NFC title game -- remember Gary Anderson's only missed field goal in a two-year span? -- precluding a titanic clash with the eventual champion Broncos in Super Bowl XXXIII (John Elway's swan song).
