30 Sports Legends Who Suffered Stunning Defeats

1. Dan Marino (1999)

Marino led the Miami Dolphins for the entirety of his NFL career. One of the best quarterbacks of his generation, he unfortunately never won a Super Bowl. This is a bit of a travesty because he was definitely worthy of a ring. However, the players around him weren’t always of a high enough standard to make Miami competitive. His final appearance came in 1999 when he suffered one of the worst defeats of his career.

Miami played the Jacksonville Jaguars in a playoff game. Everybody knew that this was Marino’s final season. But they thought that his team might contend for a final time. In the end, that’s not what happened. The Dolphins were more like goldfish as the hungry Jaguars destroyed them. Jacksonville won 62-7 after totally destroying their opponents. It was a shame for Marino as he played terribly as well.
