Three seasons after coming over from the University Miami and two years after a 1-15 debut with Dallas, Johnson brought the Cowboys to their first title in 15 years.
The three-headed monster of Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin, and Emmitt Smith sparked one of the NFL’s best offenses while the Cowboys also fielded the league’s top defense.
The Bills had their third crack at winning a title, but were 6.5-point underdogs at the last Super Bowl held at the Rose Bowl. The Cowboys sprinted to a 28-10 halftime lead, and poured on 21 points in the fourth quarter for a 52-17 win.
Michael Irvin and Andre Reed each tallied 100 receiving yards, marking the first time two receivers on opposing teams reached the mark.
