The great ones never lose, they just run out of time. That's what happened to Roger Staubach in Super Bowl XIII, who overcame the most famous drop -- Jackie Smith's in the end zone -- in NFL history.
This 35-31 contest had so many moments ... a strip-sack for a touchdown, Terry Bradshaw's MVP performance, the Smith drop, a big pass-interference call on the Cowboys' Benny Barnes, and a special-teams fumble that turned the game around.
Gil Brandt's take: "Super Bowl XIII, in my mind, was one of the most memorable Super Bowls. Those were two great football teams. We (the Dallas Cowboys) made mistakes. We had Randy White on the return team with a cast on, and then he fumbled the kickoff ... which really hurt us. Even though we lost, I would say Super Bowl XIII was among the greatest Super Bowls."
