Twice in the past, the Miami Dolphins and Washington Redskins have faced each other in a Super Bowl matchup.

The first time came in January of 1973, Super Bowl VII. The Dolphins, led by their no-name defense, defeated the Washington Redskins by the score of 14-7. The lone touchdown by the 'Skins came thanks to the infamous Garo Yepremian "pass" after his field goal was blocked. 

One decade later, following the strike-shortened 1982 NFL season, the Dolphins and Redskins again met in the Super Bowl. This time it was John Riggins and the Hogs that prevailed as the Redskins won 27-17 to claim their first of three Super Bowls.

Today was a completely different story. Instead of a matchup between two great teams, the Dolphins vs. Redskins is a matchup between two teams with a combined record of 4-12 who both have quarterback issues.

For Miami, they looked to build upon their first win, a 31-3 thrashing of the Kansas City Chiefs. For Washington, they're looking for their first victory since Week 4, and the first career victory for John Beck.

The first career victory for Beck would have to wait though, as Grossman would replace him, but the results were no different for the Redskins as they would lose to Miami 20-9.

For the second consecutive game, Miami would deny their opponent a touchdown, while the offense again was proficient despite at times looking sloppy. 

Miami now stands at 2-7, all but eliminated from the Andrew Luck sweepstakes, while Washington falls to 3-6. 

Here's a look at how the Dolphins became victorious over the Washington Redskins.

Updated Score: Dolphins 20 Redskins 9 FINAL.
