The Dallas Cowboys beat the Denver Broncos 27-10 in Super Bowl XII at the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans. It is the first Super Bowl played in a dome and the first to be played in primetime. The Cowboys’ Doomsday Defense dominated Denver, forcing eight turnovers. This led to co-MVPs being chosen for the first time as Harvey Martin and Randy White shared the honor for the Cowboys.
