The 1969 Miami Dolphins season was the team's fourth season, and their final season in the American Football League (AFL). This would also be the final season for George Wilson as head coach, as Don Shula would be hired next season to start a dynasty for Miami and to coach the team for the next 25 seasons until 1995. The team looked to improve on it's 5-8-1 record from 1968. However, the Dolphins would struggle from the seasons start, losing it's first 3 games before tying the Oakland Raiders and losing their next 2 games to start the season 0-5-1. After their week 7 win over the Buffalo Bills, the Dolphins would end the season with a 3-10-1 record. It should also be noted that their week 10 loss to the Buffalo Bills would be the last time the Dolphins would lose to the Bills until 1980, as the Dolphins would win 20 straight against the Bills from 1970-1979. This became known as "The Streak", as it set an NFL record for longest winning streak for one team against one opponent.
