Possibly one of the most memorable plays in Dallas Cowboys history happened in a 1975 NFC Divisional playoff game. The “Hail Mary Pass” (the phrase coined by Dallas QB Roger Staubach after the game) sealed the come from behind victory that helped send the Cowboys to the Super Bowl XIII. The play involved WR Drew Pearson’s touchdown catch of a Staubach pass in the closing moments of the game against the Minnesota Vikings.
