Despite the Dallas Cowboys’ s lack of success in the last two decades, they are still considered “America’s Team”, and one of the most historic franchises in the NFL.

Throughout the 1970s and 1990s, the Cowboys started bringing prominence to their franchise, with some notable success and quite a few Super Bowl wins.

Specifically in 1968 and 1977, the Dallas Cowboys had their best result in a season, with a record of 12-2.

The 90’s Dallas Cowboys winning streak

The 90’s were just dominated by the Cowboys. In 1966, they began an NFL-record of 20 consecutive winning seasons. That streak included five Super Bowl appearances, two wins in Super Bowls VI and XII, 13 divisional championships and 18 years in the playoffs.

Overall, the Cowboys are tied with the Pittsburgh Steelers and Denver Broncos for the second-most Super Bowl appearances, only behind the New England Patriots who have a record of eleven Super Bowl appearances. Out of 8 appearances, Dallas has five whopping Super Bowl titles.

Let’s take a look at the scores and Super Bowls the Cowboys have won:

Dallas vs the Miami Dolphins in a 24-3 win in Super Bowl VI.
Dallas vs Denver Broncos in a 27-10 victory in Super Bowl XII.
