One of the signature games from the 1990s Cowboys dynasty is their 38-28 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in the 1994 NFC Championship.
Dallas had fallen behind by three touchdowns in the first eight minutes, and the absence of Jimmy Johnson (who had left in the offseason) had never seemed more apparent. The battle-tested Cowboys team wouldn’t go down without a fight though, and rallied around its veterans to claw back into the game. Their heroic effort would ultimately fall short, but it was a testament to the team’s heart and resolve that they managed to bring themselves within striking distance where other teams would have crumbled.
Can Sunday’s heartbreaking loss to Green Bay be a similar catalyst for Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, and the rest of the young nucleus?
Former Cowboys cornerback and Super Bowl MVP Larry Brown was on that 1994 team, and he weighed in on whether Dallas can similarly build from Sunday’s loss.
