Pats 25 Falcons 0 -Unique Score?

After Nick Folk missed the PAT after the Patriots' last TD it struck me that a 25-0 score probably hasn't happened that often in NFL history, or at least post WW II? Anyone else remember a game with this odd score?

Thanks, Ken. Of those 11, only 3 came post merger-

10/26/75-Oakland 25 San Diego 0
11/29/81-NY Jets 25 Baltimore 0
9/15/02- Tampa Bay 25 Baltimore 0

The Oakland and Tampa Bay games had a safety. The Jets game had a missed extra point accounting for the odd score. So far no games involve 6 FGs and a touchdown and XP to get to 25.

I really wish both teams had scored an extra field goal

Chase for the Bengals is having a great rookie season but Rookie Of The Year will go to Mac Jones if the Patriots make the playoffs ...

The last two 25-0 games both had an interception return for a touchdown. I thought that was a neat tidbit. Then I looked up on the list, and saw that the Packer won two consecutive 25-0 games. Consecutive as in played in back to back weeks.
Also, the Providence Steamrollers lost 25-0 games three times in four seasons.
