SUPER BOWL 6

Jan. 16, 1972

At New Orleans-81,023

Dallas 3..7..7..7-24

Miami 0..3..0..0-3

After a near-miss in Super Bowl 5, the Cowboys thoroughly dominated the Dolphins. Led by the enigmatic Duane Thomas, the Cowboys used a punishing ground attack in setting a Super Bowl record of 252 yards rushing.

Leading only 10-3 at the half, the Cowboys went 71 yards to start the third quarter and scored on a 3-yard run by Thomas, who finished the game with 95 yards on 19 carries.

Chuck Howley's interception of Bob Griese's pass set up Dallas' final score, a 7-yard pass from Roger Staubach to Mike Ditka.

Dallas controlled the ball most of the game, running off 69 offensive plays to the Miami 44.

Miami became the first team to not score a touchdown in a Super Bowl. Staubach, voted the game's most valuable player in part because the NFL feared Thomas would not appear to accept the award, completed 12 of 19 passes for 119 yards and two TDs.
