Dallas Cowboys Defeats Miami Dolphins in Super Bowl VI.  Roger Staubach named MVP.

After a near-miss in Super Bowl V, the Cowboys completely dominated the Dolphins in Super Bowl VI at Tulane Stadium. Led by Duane Thomas, the Cowboys used a punishing ground attack in setting a Super Bowl record of 252 yards rushing. They outgained the Dolphins 352 yards to 185 and racked up 13 more first downs and not permitting a touchdown for the first time in Super Bowl history and a Super Bowl Record.

Larry Csonka had not fumbled all season until the Dolphins second possession of Superbowl VI. The Cowboys immediately moved the ball downfield and kicked a 9-yard field goal by Mike Clark giving Dallas a 3-0 lead with 1:23 left in the first quarter. The Cowboys stingy defense was evident on their next series. On 3rd down and 9 at the Dolphins 38-yard line, Bob Griese, in shotgun, went back to pass, with no receivers open, Griese scrambled ackwardly trying to avoid Bob Lilly scrambled across the field and was eventually sacked for a 29 yard loss.

After Dallas received the second-half kickoff, Duane Thomas led a 71-yard march in eight plays for a 17-3 margin.

Howley intercepted Bob Griese's pass at the 50 and returned it to the Miami 9 early in the fourth period, and three plays later Roger Staubach passed 7 yards to Mike Ditka for the final touchdown.

Thomas rushed for 95 yards and Walt Garrison gained 74.

Staubach, voted the game's most valuable player, completed 12 of 19 passes for 119 yards and two touchdowns.

Miami became the first team to not score a touchdown in a Super Bowl.
