Dallas earned its first Super Bowl title, along with revenge for its close loss in Super Bowl V, by defeating Miami 24-3.
The Cowboys' rushing attack was the driving force in their victory, and quarterback Roger Staubach earned the Most Valuable Player award for directing that attack. He completed 12 of 19 passes for 119 yards and 2 touchdowns.
Leading 3-0, Dallas made it 10-0 on Staubach's 7-yard touchdown pass to Lance Alworth following a second-quarter Miami fumble. Staubach finished off the scoring in the fourth quarter with another 7-yard touchdown pass, this time to tight end Mike Ditka.
