Sorry Jeff, you missed the boat here several ways.
1. The game was played on a special Sunday Night edition of Monday Night Football.
2. It was late October of 1984.
3. Dallas never came back from a 28 point deficit. In this game against the Saints, Dallas trailed 24-3 in the 3rd quarter. The tying TD was when Randy White bombed Stabler and the ball came loose. Harvey Martin recovered the ball in the end zone.
The only other time Dallas came back from a 21 point deficit was Opening Day of 1999 in Washington.
