History

1978 DALLAS COWBOYS

 MILESTONES
  • Thirteen Straight Winning Seasons - After a mediocre 6-4 start, the Cowboys won six straight games to finish the expanded regular season with a 12-4 record and their 10th division crown. It marked the Cowboys' 13th consecutive winning season and 12th trip to the playoffs in that span. Dallas rallied to beat Atlanta 27-20 in a divisional playoff at Texas Stadium, sending the Cowboys to their seventh NFC championship game in the past nine years.
  • Fifth NFC Title - Dallas shut out the Rams in Los Angeles 28-0 in the National Conference title game to advance to the Super Bowl a record fifth time, including three of the last four. In the first Super Bowl rematch, Pittsburgh edged the Cowboys 35-31 for the NFL championship on Jan. 21 in Miami's Orange Bowl.
