OK, so you already know to which game I shall refer. Yep, 30-20 over the San Francisco 49ers in January 1993. The game that put us back into the Super Bowl after a long hiatus.
I spoke in an earlier installment that when we beat Chicago the year before, it let us know that we were back after the dark years of the late 80s and early 90s. But this was the game that cemented the return to the top. Sure the Cowboys still had the Super Bowl to play, but it was almost a foregone conclusion that whoever won between the Cowboys and 49ers would win that game, too. These were the two best teams in the league by far. They both held that status for a 4 year period or so.
Troy put up over 300 yards passing, including a dramatic deep pass to Alvin Harper - well, it wasn't that deep of a pass, but Harper took it 70 yards to set up the last Cowboy's touchdown (to Kelvin Martin or K-Mart as affectionately called back then). Emmitt had another 100 yard game.
In the muddy field that posed as Candlestick Park, the Cowboys returned to their proper position - Champion.
