Let’s remember Super Bowl 13 or Dallas vs Pittsburgh or Roger Staubach vs. Terry Bradshaw or Coach Landry vs Coach Knoll.

It was the last post-season game played in the 1970’s and the best two teams of the decade.

Coach Landry’s Cowboys played in the 1971, 1972, 1975, 1978 and 1979 SB’s. They won two of them.

Pittsburgh blossomed in the 1970’s with great draft picks. They played in the 1975, 1976, 1979 and a year later in 1980. They won all 4 SB’s.

Super Bowl 13 went down to the last minute.  

Pittsburgh was up 35-17 but Dallas scored twice and made it 35-31 with seconds left.  The Cowboys tried the onside but Pittsburgh recovered and the game was over.

SB 13 will always be remembered for Jackie Smith dropping a “certain” Cowboys’ TD in the end zone:

It was a great game. I still feel bad for Jackie Smith dropping that pass from Staubach.
