Super Bowl 28

Jan. 30, 1994

At Atlanta-72,817

Dallas .6..0.14.10-30

Buffalo .3.10..0..0-13

In the only rematch in back-to-back years, Emmitt Smith rushed for 132 yards and two second-half touchdowns to lead the Cowboys to their second straight NFL title - and give the Bills a record four consecutive Super Bowl losses.

Buffalo has not been back to the Super Bowl since.

The Bills built a 13-6 halftime lead on Thurman Thomas' 4-yard run and two field goals by Steve Christie, including a record 54-yarder.

One minute into the second half, Thomas was stripped by Dallas defensive tackle Leon Lett. Safety James Washington recovered the fumble and ran 46 yards for the tying touchdown.

The Cowboys forced the Bills to punt on the next possession and started on their 36-yard line. Smith carried seven times for 61 yards, including a 15-yard touchdown run, in an eight-play scoring drive.

Washington set up the Cowboys' final touchdown in the fourth quarter when he intercepted Jim Kelly's pass and returned it 12 yards to the Bills 34. On the 10th play of the drive, Smith scored on fourth-and-goal from the 1 to put the Cowboys in front 27-13.
