3. Steelers vs. Cowboys (1979)
The Steelers vs. Cowboys rivalry continued into the 1978 season. It culminated in an epic game that many analysts still consider one of the best Super Bowls ever. Interestingly, it was the first rematch in the showpiece event’s history. Dallas were defending champions but they came in as underdogs. In the end, the Steelers justified their status as favorites because they won in epic style.
Incredibly, 19 future Hall of Famers were involved in this game. Terry Bradshaw was brilliant because he threw four touchdown passes, including a 75-yard touchdown. The quarterback set multiple records in his awesome display. Meanwhile, Roger Staubach was excellent on the other side with three touchdown passes. But Lynn Swann’s four catches earned him the MVP award and a Pittsburgh win (via 247 Sports).
