NFL America's Game: Dallas Cowboys
Since their losses to Green Bay in the 1966 and '67 NFL Championship games, the Dallas Cowboys had become known as a team incapable of winning the big one.
But in 1971, Dallas finally shed its runner-up role by defeating the Miami Dolphins 24-3 in Super Bowl VI.
In 1977, the Cowboys obtained the draft rights to Heisman Trophy winner Tony Dorsett and landed the final piece to their championship puzzle. Dorsett won Rookie of the Year honors and Dallas surged to a 14 and 2 record before cruising to victory over the Broncos in Super Bowl XII.
Dallas was absent from the Super Bowl for 15 years before winning 3 Championships in 4 seasons. In 1992, the "Triplets", Quarterback Troy Aikman, Running Back Emmitt Smith and Wide Receiver Michael Irvin, powered the Cowboys to a 52-17 victory over the Bills in Super Bowl XXVII.
The next season saw the "Triplets" and 8 of their teammates reach the Pro Bowl as this talent laden team won its second straight Super Bowl, defeating the Bills again in Super Bowl XXVIII.
Dallas failed to three-peat in 1994, but came back in 1995 under Head Coach Barry Switzer to win their third championship in 4 years with a 27-17 victory over the Steelers. With their victory in Super Bowl XXX, the Dallas Cowboys joined the San Francisco 49ers as 5-time winners of the Super Bowl.
