The Dallas Cowboys stun the Minnesota Vikings 17-14 in the Divisional Playoffs as Drew Pearson catches a 50-yard pass from Roger Staubach with less than 30 seconds left at Metropolitan Stadium. Pearson appeared to push off Nate Wright on the play, but no flag was thrown. After the game, Staubach said he closed his eyes and said a “Hail Mary” when the ball was thrown. The Cowboys would go on to play in Super Bowl X.
