History

1977 DALLAS COWBOYS

 MILESTONES
  • Howley Honored - Former all-Pro linebacker ChuckHowley, a Cowboy from 1961 through 1973, became the fourth member of the Ring of Honor. Howley was honored during ceremonies at halftime of the Detroit Lions game on Oct. 30.
  • Twelve Straight Winning Seasons - Getting off to an 8-0 start, their best ever, the Cowboys rolled to a 12-2 record, the championship of the NFC East, and their 12th consecutive winning season. They opened their 11th visit to the playoffs in those 12 years with a 34-7 first-round victory over the Chicago Bears at Texas Stadium.
  • Fourth NFC Title - Dallas crushed the Minnesota Vikings at Texas Stadium, 23-6, for National Conference crown No. 4 and the right to meet the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XII.
  • Second World Championship - The Cowboys stopped the Denver Broncos, 27-10, to win Super Bowl XII in New Orleans on Jan. 15, 1978. In the process, Dallas tied Minnesota for most Super Bowl appearances (four) and Green Bay, Miami and Pittsburgh for most Super Bowl victories (two). Defensive linemen Harvey Martin and Randy White were named co-MVPs in the game.
