Dallas became the fifth team to win back-to-back Super Bowls, joining San Francisco and Pittsburgh as the only four-time champions. Leading the way in its 30-13 victory over Buffalo was running back Emmitt Smith, who had 30 carries for 132 yards and two touchdowns .
Trailing 13-6 at halftime, Dallas tied the score on a James Washington fumble return. Then they turned the ball over to Smith, and he took it from there. Nineteen of his 30 carries came in the second half, as did both his touchdowns.
His first score, which gave Dallas the lead for good, came after an 8-play, 64-yard drive in which Smith carried the ball seven times. His 15-yard run capped off the drive. In the fourth quarter, he put the game on ice with a 1-yard touchdown run on fourth-and-goal.
