Super Bowl X

By Wikipedia

The Cowboys and the defending champion Steelers met at the Orange Bowl for Super Bowl X, which was a classic. The game was broadcast by CBS with announcers Pat Summerall and Tom Brookshier.

Steelers receiver Lynn Swann probably earned himself in the Pro Football Hall of Fame with a pair of remarkable catches and was named the game's MVP.
