So dial us up at 6:00 a.m. ET on NBC Sports Radio, with the simulcast starting at 7:00 a.m. ET on NBCSN. And chime in below with your choice(s) for the most dominant postseason runs.

  1. ’85 Bears.

    End of discussion.

    Back to back shutouts in the playoffs. Only allowed 10 points during entire NFL playoffs. No other team was nearly as dominant during their three game playoff run.

  2. I know which one was the *least* impressive – Peyton’s first Super Bowl. They went through the Ravens, who has their usual historically inept offense and only beat them 15-6, then squeaked by a terrible Patriots offense that featured Reche Caldwell as their leading receiver, and defeated the always terrible Rex Grossman and the Bears. So basically their defense was never tested in any way, and the offense didn’t look so hot in several of those games either.

  3. If we are talking postseason only I think there are a lot of options, but (and I’m not a Dolphins fan) if we are talking entire season it has to be the ’72 Dolphins. Undefeated is undefeated.

  4. 1. 1989 49ers. Won by 28, 27, 45 (+100). 26 points allowed in 3 games.

    2. 1985 Bears. Won by 21, 24, 36 (+81). 10 points allowed in 3 games.

    3. 1986 Giants. Won by 46, 17, 19 (+82). 23 points allowed in 3 games.

    4. 2000 Ravens. Won by 18, 14, 13, 27 (+72). 23 points allowed in 4 games. This was the only dominating playoff in the salary cap era.

  5. 2014 Colts when the went to Foxboro and won the AFC Conference Championship Participation banner.

  6. so many 85 bears comments. and no ravens? 1 td allowed by the defense while facing some great offenses. and had one more playoff game than the bears.
