    Twenty Years ago, Troy Aikman led the upstart Cowboys to a Superbowl XXVII beatdown of the Buffalo Bills.

    What a great game.

    I think I will watch that today while I tackle laundry and mopping.

    Ken norton stuffing Kenneth Davis is still my favorite moment, it signified everything that team was about.

    In 91 norton stood up Barry sanders on a 4th and 1 in the lions game but it didn't mean much in the end.

    The euphoria from beating the niners in the championship game hadn't even worn off by the time we played the Super Bowl.

    Then to win the sb was just amazing.

    Being a Cowboys fan living in Buffalo...that was a pretty awesome day. I can remember walking around different parts of town with my fan gear on and Bills fans were so defeated they had nothing left in the tank to muster up any kind of defiant retort. It was a lot of eyes looking up, seeing my Cowboys jersey, and then eyes looking back down or away.

    What could you say after a beat down like that?

    Norton's stonewall of Davis was one of the very best plays I have ever seen. The hit he put on Kelly was amazing. I remember it seem Ken was making plays all over the place that day. I remember it took forever for Ken to pick up Reich's fumble for the TD, LOL! I though Norton could have easily been picked the MVP just as easy as Troy was...

    What an incredible day that was!
    I couldn't speak the next day cause my throat was so sore from yelling :laugh2:

    Hats off to the 1992 Super Bowl Champion Dallas Cowboys :starspin

    I loved ken norton so much.

    It was heartbreaking watching him in that stupid niners uni.

    Jerry wouldn't pay a real cowboy player who was a big part of the locker room in norton and then he turns around and gives away a fortunate to Deion frigging sanders a front running outsider.

    The uniforms of both teams against the natural grass and the sun that day is just perfect also.

    I still think that should just be the home of the Super Bowl.

    I was thinking the same thing the other day. I guess it doesn't have enough suites to get the super bowl anymore.

    Hard to believe it was 20 years ago.

    What a great day it was.

    I was fortunate to be able to go to the game. One of the best experiences in my life! Just awesome!

    Where can you watch it? Will it be on the NFL Network?

    Aside from the day each of my children were born and the day I got my quail hunting limit while hauling in an 8 lbs black bass (all in one day),
    This day 20 years ago was one at the top of the list.
    Thanks for the reminder!!
    That Cowboy team had NO weaknesses. They were so awesome and the beauty of it was that we stomped through SF to get there.

    I won $2500 on a pool that game. I bought 3 squares for $100 each because I just knew that the Cowboys had arrived. People here in Utah thought I was crazy! Of course, it was a betting board of chance, but, my number hit!

    I bought a Aikman authentic jersey for $175 and since my stepson loves the Bills, I bought him a Bills Jim Kelly jersey just because he was so disappointed.

    I also have an Aikman blue jersey from the next year that the Cowboys won the SB. They have never been worn.

    Joe Rod, you're bringing tears to my eyes. That was the perfect game on a perfect day. Everything was aligned just right. We trailed 10-0 at one point, but the truth was, Buffalo didn't stand a chance that day. The Dallas Cowboys winning Super Bowl XXVII was just meant to be. Destiny sounds corny, but that's just what it was. I miss that feeling of Cowboys invincibility. That team was so loaded...

    We never trailed 10-0. It was 7-0, then we tied it at 7-7 on Aikman to Novacek pass. Went ahead 14-7 on on Jimmy Jones TD. Never trailed after that.

    My favorite of the 90's Super Bowl, what a great game.

    To me the real Super Bowl was beating SF in the NFC championship.

    Those twenty year went by fast.

    OK. I don't know why I thought they had an early field goal. Anyway, it wouldn't have mattered. The Cowboys were ON. Yeah, those two decades flew by.

    They did kick a field goal to make it 14-10.

    We score to two quick TD (seconds apart) in the 1st and 2nd quarter. Irvin caught two TD in the 2nd to make a 28-10 at the half.
