Most painful Super Bowl loss: Pittsburgh beats Dallas in # 13!

This week, the NFL channel brought back Super Bowl 13, Dallas vs Pittsburgh.

Roger Staubach vs. Terry Bradshaw

Coach Landry vs Coach Knoll.

It was the last post-season game played in the 1970s.

It was also a game between the two best teams of the 1970's.

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. It was really worth watching the NFL channel rerun!

Pittsburgh was up 35-17 but Dallas scored twice and made it 35-31 with seconds left:
"Although the game seemed decided, the Cowboys refused to give up.

On their next drive, Dallas drove 89 yards in 8 plays to score on Staubach's 7-yard touchdown pass to Dupree.

Then after Dallas' Dennis Thurman recovered an onside kick at 2:19, Drew Pearson caught 2 passes for gains of 22 and 25 yards as the Cowboys drove 52 yards in 9 plays to score on Staubach's 4-yard touchdown pass to Butch Johnson.

With the ensuing extra point, the score was cut to 35–31 with just 0:22 left in the game.
But the Cowboys' second onside kick attempt was unsuccessful.

Bleier recovered the ball and the Steelers were able to run out the clock to win the game."
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.
