The Dallas Cowboys smother the Miami Dolphins, winning Super Bowl VI 24-3 at Tulane Stadium in New Orleans. The three points scored by the Dolphins are the fewest for any team in Super Bowl history, a record matched by the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LIII. Roger Staubach wins the Super Bowl MVP, passing for 119 yards with two touchdowns. With a kickoff temperature of 39°F. The loss served as motivation for Miami as they would remark on a perfect season in 1972, winning Super Bowl VII.
