The National Football League in the 1970s represented a new epoch in professional football.

This book examines each year of the NFL's pivotal decade in detail, covering the great names, great rivalries and great games of the '70s. The author explains key changes in both strategy and rules and how pro football developed into the near-religious American tradition we see today.
