Akron Pros, only undefeated team in year one*, 1920:  6-0-3.

No playoffs or title game the inaugural season, so an unblemished record was de facto champion. 

The team featured star runner and kick returner Fritz Pollard, an artful dodger who foretold the resistance in professional sport that Jackie Robinson would face thirty years later. 

*Note: Though the American Professional Football Association wasn't renamed the NFL until 1922, the survival of two teams from 1920 made it 'year one.'

More history to be found in team ballcaps and dropkick shirts.
