It was SB XIII, and it was due to a PI call on Benny Barnes after his and Lynn Swann's feet got tangled up. That isn't why the Cowboys lost the game, however. They lost because Bradshaw had a career game against them that day and Jackie Smith couldn't hold onto the damn ball in the end zone. Case closed. To say that the refs "gave" us that game is as ridiculous as the notion of O'Donnell being paid to throw SB XXX. We lost XXX because on his best day O'Donnell was an average QB and he wilted under championship game pressure.
