Emmitt Smith of the Dallas Cowboys sets an NFL record by scoring his 25th touchdown of the season. Smith breaks the old record set by John Riggins with the Washington Redskins in 1983. Smith scores the record-breaker in the fourth quarter as the Cowboys crush the Arizona Cardinals 37-13 in the final game of the season on Monday Night Football. The record would be topped by Marshall Faulk of the St. Louis Rams five years later.
