The Dallas Cowboys in a Nutshell
Representing the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex area, the Dallas Cowboys have been part of the NFL since 1960 and the National Football Conference East Division since 1970. Called America’s Team or the Doomsday Defense during their dynasty years in the late sixties and seventies, the Cowboys have won five Super Bowl Championships with the last one coming in 1995 at Super Bowl XXX.
Even though the Cowboys have made it to the playoffs on nine occasions with six Division Championships since 1995, the last one coming in 2016, America’s Team has been unable to make it to the Super Bowl in the last twenty plus years.
However, with the latest set of drafts concentrating on improving their pass rush, all is expected to change for the Cowboys in the 2017-18 season.
Cowboys at their Absolute Best
The Dallas Cowboys may have had their dynasty years in the late sixties and seventies, it was during the nineties they had their most success. In a space of a decade the Cowboys won three Super Bowls, three NFC Conference Championships, six NFC East Championships and made it to the playoffs every year except for 1997.
It was in 1993 the Cowboys began their domination of the nineties
Changing of the Guard – On January 17, 1993, the Cowboys went up against the number one seed the San Francisco 49ers at Candlestick Park. In front of 64,920 fans, the Cowboys defeated the 49ers 30-20 and booked themselves a Super Bowl berth for the first time since 1978.
This 1992 season NFC Championship Game is referred to as Changing of the Guard due to the simple fact that the 49ers were the favorites and the Cowboys win resulted in a major upset.
The Catch – Even though this particular encounter saw the Cowboys lose, the NFC Championship Game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Dallas Cowboys on October 1, 1982, was perhaps a precursor to their 1993 faceoff. The two teams met at Candlestick Park with 60,525 fans in attendance. The final score was a win for the 49ers 28-27 over the Cowboys.
This 1981-82 NFC Championship game is remembered for two reasons. San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Dwight Clark grabbed an improbable pass at the back of the end zone with 51 seconds remaining to clinch a victory for the 49ers. Second, the 49ers snapped a three game playoff losing streak against the Cowboys.

Emmitt Smith is another cowboy who is the NFL’s all time rushing yardage leader. Inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2010, this Running Back spent 13 years with the Dallas Cowboys amassing 17,162 yards and 153 touchdowns.
