Associated Press
The Steelers opened the fourth quarter scoring two straight touchdowns, building a 35-17 lead and the Cowboys all but looking like they were done. Dallas didn't quit, however, as Roger Staubach led the Cowboys on an 89-yard eight-play scoring drive to bring them to within 35-24. After a successful onside kick, the Cowboys scored again to cut the score to 35-31. Their luck ran out, however, as the Steelers successfully recovered the next onside kick before running out the clock for victory. Quarterback Terry Bradshaw was named the MVP, finishing the game with four touchdown passes and 318 yards through the air.

I would put the Broncos-Packers Super Bowl a bit higher, certainly top five. First of all, it was a brilliantly played game. Some of the Super Bowls, while having close scores, weren't necessarily good games throughout, this one was. It was a game won rather than lost with great play and big upset at the time.

The most important Super Bowl and the one that should be #1 on the list is the Jets win over the Colts. It legitimized the American Football LEAUGE and made the merger possible which brought about the current NFL today as we know it. This game was huge for the history of the game. The Bills-Giants game was a good game, also generally well played and memorable with the wide right by Norwood at the end and played during the Persian Gulf War, but bottom line, it isn't important like Super Bowl III.

On game #10 it is wrong. Elway's "Helicpoter" dive was not into the end zone but for a first down inside the ten, and then the Packers let Davis run the touchdown in so they could get the ball back with time to score. Lets get it right
