Pittsburgh won its second straight Super Bowl, 21-17, over wild-card Dallas. And the Cowboys got there on a wild ride that included the original – and controversial – “Hail Mary” pass. In the playoffs, Dallas beat Minnesota 17-14 on a last-play 50-yard TD pass from Roger Staubach to Drew Pearson. Then the Cowboys drubbed the Los Angeles Rams, 37-7, conquering a team that yielded only 135 points all season.
Pittsburgh’s Steel Curtain defense (162 points) was the AFC’s best, by far. Mean Joe Greene, Jack Lambert, Mel Blount (11 INTs), et al held nine foes to 10 or fewer points. Plenty good enough for an offense with RB Franco Harris (1,408 yards), QB Terry Bradshaw (only 9 INTs) and WR Lynn Swann (11 TDs).
St. Louis beat Dallas twice to win the NFC East with FB Jim Otis (1,076 yards) and HB Terry Metcalf (2,439 all-purpose yards and 13 TDs) … Oakland won the AFC West with a defense that intercepted 35 passes, QB Ken Stabler, HB Pete Banaszak (16 rushing TDs) and WR Cliff Branch (18 ypc) … Minnesota won its first 10 games and the NFC Central. The Purple People Eater defense (DE Carl Eller, DT Alan Page, FS Paul Krause, et al) that held 14 foes to 180 points, and the Vikings had the NFC’s highest-scoring team (377 points) with HB Chuck Foreman (1,761 yards from scrimmage, 22 TDs) and Frank Tarkenton, who led the NFC in passing, with 64 percent completions and 25 TDs.
