This Day In Sports History (January 21st) – Super Bowl XIII
It was on this day in 1979 that Super Bowl XIII took place at the Orange Bowl in Miami, Florida. The Pittsburgh Steelers defeated the Dallas Cowboys 35-31 to win the first of back-to-back championships.
The Pittsburgh Steelers were led by regular season Most Valuable Player quarterback Terry Bradshaw. Although he threw one interception and lost two fumbles, Bradshaw still set Super Bowl records by throwing for 318 yards and four touchdowns to become the first man to be named regular season and Super Bowl Most Valuable Player in the same season. The Steelers held a 35-17 fourth quarter lead when Roger Staubach threw two late touchdowns to cut the lead to four, but it was too little too late as the Cowboys ran out of time and fell to Pittsburgh for the second time in the last four years.
With the Steelers victory over the Baltimore Ravens last week they find themselves in the AFC Championship Game for the fourth time in the last seven years. With two more wins, Ben Roethlisberger can become only the fifth quarterback in history to lead his team to three Super Bowl titles.
