On January 30, 1994, it was held in the Georgia Dome. The NFC champion Dallas Cowboys faced the AFC champion Buffalo Bills in Super Bowl 28, with both teams coming as the top seeds in their respective conferences. This was also the first Super Bowl to be broadcast live in high definition.
The game was close throughout, with both teams being within a score of each other at halftime. The second half was all Dallas, as they dominated offensively and defensively against a very weak Bills' team. The final score was 37-21 in favor of the Cowboys. Troy Aikman had another great game, completing 21 of his 33 passes for 241 yards and two touchdowns. Emmitt Smith also had another great game, running for 102 yards and a touchdown. Michael Irving returned an interception 74 yards for a touchdown just before the end of the third quarter. It was the only defensive touchdown of the game. Clarence Denmark/Getty Images
This was the last time until 2016 that a championship game wasn't played on February 4th due to scheduling conflicts. The NFL moved the date of its championship game to January 31st of the following year to avoid conflicting with any annual events scheduled for February.
Atlanta has hosted the Super Bowl twice before this event. In 1995, the Falcons were defeated by Green Bay in Super Bowl 32 24-1.
Friday, February 6, 2011 The game took place on February 6, 2011, at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, marking the first time that the Super Bowl was held in the Dallas-Fort Worth region. It was also the first time that a stadium built for a sports team (Dell Diamond) served as the site of the championship game.
The New York Giants were awarded the honor of hosting the 2011 Super Bowl by virtue of being the winner of the 2010 NFL season. This is the second time that Dallas has hosted the event; the original Dallas Super Bowl was played at Cotton Bowl Stadium in 1972. The city was again selected as the host of the next year's game after New Orleans was found to have failed to comply with federal safety regulations for sports stadiums.
The Super Bowl is an annual American football game featuring the winners of the National Football League (NFL) Championship Series. It is considered the highest achievement in the sport and is often referred to as "the game that decides the champion of the world". The term "Super Bowl" is commonly used to refer to the entire two-day event consisting of the game itself and a large associated festival that takes place in the host city.
The 2011 Super Bowl generated over $200 million in economic activity and attracted more than 95,000 attendees.
The Steelers were beaten by the Cowboys 27-17. The Super Bowl was held on January 28, 1996, at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Arizona, marking the first time the event was held in the Phoenix metropolitan region. This also marked the first time the NFC won the Super Bowl.
This was also the first Super Bowl played in a cold weather environment with a temperature below freezing during the game. The wind chill factor was 10 degrees when the game started and did not rise above 20 degrees all day.
It's interesting to note that these games were only the second time that Pittsburgh has been involved in a championship clash. The first time was in 1970 when they lost to Miami 7-9 in Super Bowl IX. That's one title for them and one for the Dolphins!
