This one's super easy. Dallas Cowboys. They beat the Miami Dolphins 24-3, in, I believe, Super Bowl VI.

You guys are quick. I figured, with the amount of knowledge here on this board someone would get it quickly. You'd be suprised how long it takes most folks to get the first one though.

Didn't Randy White and Harvey Martin share the Super Bowl MVP one year? Too lazy to look it up. Might have been the Denver game.

I believe you are referring to Super Bowl XII in New Orleans in January of 1978. Dallas wins, 27-10.

Randy White and Harvey Martin did win the co-MVP's in the Denver SB.
Another little trivia note here....Chuck Howley was the only MVP to play for a losing team if I'm not mistaken. Dallas lost to Baltimore 16-13 on a last second feild goal (I was 10 years old and was sick for a month).

That would be Super Bowl V, the first one after the AFL-NFL Merger!!!! The Blooper Bowl and it was played in Miami.

Yeah, I don't know your age Wyokie, but they used to have "electric football games" from the Sears cataloge. They sold them according to the previous Super Bowl game. I got the Super Bowl V edition much to my delight and shegrin. The following years, I collected every pre-painted NFL team, like Ralphie in "A Christmas Story" mailed away for the Little Orphan Annie stuff. I'd cut grass and shovel snow for money and spend it all on NFL electric football teams.

Sorry, :cry: :cry: :cry:, getting a little nostalgic.............

I'm 32 and how I know about previous Super Bowls is that I read...a lot.
