Pittsburgh Steelers Defeats Dallas Cowboys in Super Bowl X.  Lynn Swann named MVP.

MVP Lynn Swann caught four passes for 161 yards and a touchdown as the Steelers won their second consecutive Super Bowl on Terry Bradshaw's 64-yard touchdown pass to Lynn Swann and an aggressive defense that snuffed out a late rally by the Cowboys. Leading 15-10 in the fourth quarter on two Roy Gerela field goals, a safety and a Bradshaw-to-Randy Grossman touchdown. Bradshaw withstood a ferocious Cowboys rush to unleash his scoring strike to Swann. Dallas came back on a Roger Staubach-to-Percy Howard 34-yard TD pass to close within four points.

The Cowboys, who made the playoffs as a wild-card team, mounted a late rally after taking over on their own 39 when Pittsburgh gave the ball up on downs with 1:22 left to play. With no timeouts, Dallas quarterback Roger Staubach picked up a couple of first downs and moved the Cowboys to the Steelers' 38 yard line. But Staubach's desperation pass was intercepted in the end zone by Glen Edwards as time ran out, and Pittsburgh had made it two in a row.

The game saw only two penalties assessed (both against Dallas).

The Steelers won the Super Bowl for the second year in a row on Terry Bradshaw's 64-yard touchdown pass to Lynn Swann and an aggressive defense that snuffed out a late rally by the Cowboys with an end-zone interception on the final play of the game.

In the fourth quarter, Pittsburgh ran on fourth down and gave up the ball on the Cowboys' 39 with 1:22 to play. Roger Staubach ran and passed for two first downs but his last desperation pass was picked off by Glen Edwards.

Dallas's scoring was the result of two touchdown passes by Staubach, one to Drew Pearson for 29 yards and the other to Percy Howard for 34 yards. Toni Fritsch had a 36-yard field goal.

The Steelers scored on two touchdown passes by Bradshaw, one to Randy Grossman for seven yards and the long bomb to Swann. Roy Gerela had 36 and 18 yard field goals. Reggie Harrison blocked a punt through the end zone for a safety.

Swann set a new Super Bowl record by gaining 161 yards on his four receptions.
