Jim Kiick of the Miami Dolphins goes head first over Glen Edwards of the Pittsburgh Steelers as he scores in the third quarter of their AFC championship game at Three Rivers Stadium in Pittsburgh, Pa., Dec. 31, 1972. The Dolphins won 21-17. Nick Buoniconti and Kiick, two prominent members of the 1972 undefeated team, now are dealing with progressively diminished cognitive skills, a potential warning sign of a degenerative brain disease, CTE, that has been strongly linked to football head injuries.
