Dallas 7..7..3.14-31

In one of the most exciting Super Bowls, Terry Bradshaw threw four touchdown passes to lead the Steelers to their third win. Bradshaw, voted the game's most valuable player, completed 17 of 30 passes for 318 yards, breaking Bart Starr's record of 250 yards passing by halftime.

Two Bradshaw-to-John Stallworth and one Bradshaw-to-Rocky Bleier throws in the first half gave Pittsburgh a 21-14 lead at halftime.

Franco Harris ran 22 yards for a score after Rafael Septein had cut Pittsburgh's lead to 21-17 with a field goal. Pittsburgh then seemingly put the game out of reach with less than seven minutes to play when Bradshaw hit Lynn Swann for an 18-yard TD strike to make the score 35-17.

But Roger Staubach threw his second scoring pass of the game with 2:23 left, a 7-yarder to Billy Joe DuPree. The Cowboys then recovered an onside kick and scored again on Staubach's third TD pass with 22 seconds remaining.

Dallas' bid for another onside kick recovery and a miracle comeback failed as Rocky Bleier fell on the ensuing kickoff with 17 seconds left.
