Super Bowl V - Wikipedia Super Bowl V the fifth edition of the Super Bowl and first modernera National Football League NFL championship game was an American football game between the American Football Conference AFC champion Baltimore Colts and the National Football Conference NFC champion Dallas Cowboys to decide the NFL champion for the 1970 season 3 4 Defense Adding A Fifth Rusher The Colts defeated the Cowboys by the score of 16–13 The game was played on January 17 1971 at the Orange Bowl in Miami Florida the first Super Bowl game played on artificial turf on firstgeneration PolyTurf This was the first Super Bowl played after the completion of the AFL–NFL merger Beginning with this game and continuing to the present day the Super Bowl has served as the NFLs league championship game with the winner of the AFC Championship Game and the winner of the NFC Championship Game facing off in the culmination of the NFL playoffs As per the merger agreement all 26 AFL and NFL teams were divided into two conferences with 13 teams in each of them Along with the Colts the Cleveland Browns and the Pittsburgh Steelers agreed to join the 10 AFL teams to form the AFC The remaining 13 NFL teams formed the NFC This explains why the Colts represented the NFL in Super Bowl III but the AFC for Super Bowl V Baltimore advanced to Super Bowl V after posting an 11–2–1 regular season record Meanwhile the Cowboys were making their first Super Bowl appearance after posting a 10–4 regular season record The game is sometimes called the Blunder Bowl or the Stupor Bowl because it was filled with poor play a missed PAT penalties turnovers and officiating miscues The two teams committed a Super Bowl record 11 combined turnovers in the game with 5 in the 4th quarter and the Colts seven turnovers are currently the most ever committed by a winning team in a Super Bowl Dallas also set a Super Bowl record with 10 penalties costing them 133 yards It was finally settled with nine seconds left when Colts rookie kicker Jim OBrien kicked a 32yard field goal with 5 seconds left in the game In order to win the game Baltimore had to overcome a 13–6 deficit after three quarters and losing their starting quarterback Johnny Unitas in the second quarter It is the only Super Bowl in which the Most Valuable Player Award was given to a member of the losing team Cowboys linebacker Chuck Howley who intercepted two passes sacks and tackles were not yet recorded Howley was the first nonquarterback to win the MVP award Along this theme Colts defensive end Bubba Smith would later refuse to wear his Super Bowl V ring because of the sloppy play 5 Contents 1 Background 1 1 Baltimore Colts 1 2 Dallas Cowboys 1 3 Playoffs 1 4 Super Bowl pregame news and notes 2 Television and

Coltsedit Colts Earl Morrall far left with ball running a play during Super Bowl V The Colts were an unspectacular but wellbalanced veteran team led by 37yearold star quarterback Johnny Unitas Unitas had regained his starting spot on the team in 1969 upon recovering from an injury that led him to miss the majority of the 1968 season Unitas played inconsistently during the 1970 regular season he threw for 2213 yards but recorded more interceptions than touchdowns Unitas also had injury problems causing him to miss two regular season games and thus giving Earl Morrall more significant playing time Morrall put up better statistics than Unitas 792 yards 9 touchdowns 4 interceptions and a 97 6 passer rating but head coach Don McCafferty decided to start Unitas for the playoffs According to Jim OBrien Morrall was just as good as Unitas in the players opinion 6 In addition Baltimore had three solid weapons in the passing game wide receivers Eddie Hinton and Roy Jefferson and future Hall of Fame tight end John Mackey combined for 119 receptions 1917 yards and 15 touchdowns In the backfield running back Norm Bulaich was the teams top rusher with 426 yards and 3 touchdowns while also catching 11 passes for another 123 yards The Colts main strength was their defense Pro Bowl defensive tackle Bubba Smith anchored the line Behind him the Colts had two outstanding linebackers Pro Bowler Mike Curtis who recorded 5 interceptions and Ted Hendricks In the secondary Pro Bowl safety Jerry Logan recorded 6 interceptions for 92 return yards and 2 touchdowns while safety Rick Volk had 4 interceptions for 61 return yards Don Klosterman formerly with San Diego Kansas City and Houston in the AFL became the Colts General Manager in 1970 Future Colts GM Ernie Accorsi was the public relations director Baltimore finished the regular season winning the AFC East with an 11–2–1 record also the best record in the AFC Only the Minnesota Vikings had a better record among all NFL teams going 122 Dallas Cowboysedit The Cowboys had to overcome many obstacles during the regular season Running back Calvin Hill the teams second leading rusher with 577 yards and 4 touchdowns was lost for the year after suffering a leg injury late in the regular season And wide receiver Bob Hayes was benched by head coach Tom Landry for poor performances on several occasions Most significantly the Cowboys had a quarterback controversy between Craig Morton and Roger Staubach Morton and Staubach alternated as the starting quarterback during the regular season Landry eventually settled on Morton for most of the second half of the season because he felt less confident that Staubach would follow his game plan Landry called all of Mortons plays 7 Also Morton had done extremely well in the regular season throwing for 1819 yards and 15 touchdowns with only 7 interceptions earning him a passer rating of 89 8 In contrast Staubach although a noted scrambler and able to salvage broken plays effectively threw for 542 yards and only 2 touchdowns compared to 8 interceptions giving him a 42 9 rating Hayes was the main deep threat on the team catching 34 passes for 889 yards a 26 1 yards per catch average and 10 touchdowns while also rushing 4 times for 34 yards and another touchdown and adding another 116 yards returning punts On the other side of the field wide receiver Lance Rentzel who would be deactivated for the last few weeks of the season and postseason following an indecent exposure charge being replaced in the starting lineup by Reggie Rucker recorded 28 receptions for 556 yards and 5 touchdowns Mel Renfro was a key part of the Cowboys famed Doomsday Defense However the main strength on the Cowboys offense was their running game Rookie running back Duane Thomas rushed 151 times for 803 yards a 5 1 yards per carry average and 5 touchdowns while adding another 416 yards returning kickoffs Fullback Walt Garrison who replaced the injured Hill provided Thomas with excellent blocking and rushed for 507 yards and 3 touchdowns himself Garrison was also a good receiver out of the backfield catching 21 passes for 205 yards and 2 touchdowns Up front Pro Bowl guard John Niland and Rayfield Wright anchored the offensive line Like the Colts the Cowboys main strength was their defense Nicknamed the Doomsday Defense they allowed just one touchdown in their last six games prior to the Super Bowl Their line was anchored by future Hall of Fame defensive tackle Bob Lilly Behind him linebackers Lee Roy Jordan Dave Edwards and Chuck Howley excelled at stopping the run and pass coverage The Cowboys also had an outstanding secondary led by Mel Renfro and Herb Adderley who combined for 7 interceptions Safety Charlie Waters led the team with 5 interceptions while safety Cliff Harris recorded 2 Dallas finished the regular season winning the NFC East with a 10–4 record winning their final five regular season games to overcome the St Louis Cardinals who lost their final three games and fell to third place in the final standings and New York Giants who lost their finale 31–3 to the Los Angeles Rams a Giants victory would have given New York the NFC East title based upon a better division record and forced a coin toss between the Cowboys and Detroit Lions for the wild card playoff spot Playoffsedit For more details on this topic see NFL playoffs 197071 In the playoffs Dallas defeated the Detroit Lions in sunny weather at the Cotton Bowl 5–0 with a field goal and a safety Then the Cowboys overcame the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC championship game 17–10 aided by Thomas 143 rushing yards along with interceptions by Renfro and Jordan late in the third quarter that were both converted into touchdowns Meanwhile the Colts advanced to the Super Bowl by beating the Cincinnati Bengals 17–0 and the Oakland Raiders 27–17 in the playoffs at Memorial Stadium Super Bowl pregame news and notesedit For the Colts Super Bowl V represented a chance to redeem themselves for their humiliating loss to the New York Jets in Super Bowl III Volk commented Going to the game a second time took away some of the awe I think we were able to focus better There was no way we were going to let ourselves get beat again 7 The Miami Orange Bowl during Super Bowl V Meanwhile the game was a chance for the Cowboys to lose their nickname of next years champions and their reputation of not being able to win the big games In the past 5 seasons Dallas had won more games 52 out of 68 than any other professional football team but they had never won any league title The Cowboys had chances to go to the first two Super Bowls but narrowly lost to the Green Bay Packers in both the 1966 and 1967 NFL Championship games In the 1966 title game the Cowboys failed to score a potential tying touchdown on four attempts starting from the Packers twoyard line on the games final drive Then in the 1967 title game the Ice Bowl the Cowboys lost because they allowed the Packers to score a touchdown with 16 seconds left in the game As the designated home team Dallas was forced to wear its blue jerseys for the Super Bowl under rules in place at the time which did not allow the home team its choice of jersey color unlike the regular season and playoff games leading up to the Super Bowl Dallas had not worn its blue jerseys at home since 1963 as Cowboys general manager Tex Schramm opted to have the team wear white at home in order to present fans with a consistent look The Cowboys wore their blue jerseys twice during the 1970 season losing 20–7 at St Louis in week four and winning 6–2 at Cleveland in week 13 The designated home team was first allowed its choice of jersey color for Super Bowl XIII allowing the Cowboys to wear white vs the Pittsburgh Steelers Vice President Spiro Agnew a Colts fan since the team began playing in Baltimore in 1953 attended the game 4 Agnew was Governor of Maryland prior to his election as Vice President as Richard Nixons running mate in 1968 Nixon himself was a huge football fan and had a vacation home in Key Biscayne approximately 10 miles from the Orange Bowl Kickoff for this game was at 200 pm making it the earliest starting time in the Eastern Time Zone in Super Bowl history and one of only three Super Bowls to start in the morning for viewers in the Pacific Time Zone the others were Super Bowl VI in New Orleans and Super Bowl X in Miami Television and entertainmentedit The game was broadcast in the United States by NBC with playbyplay announcer Curt Gowdy and color commentator Kyle Rote Although the Orange Bowl was sold out for the event unconditional blackout rules in the NFL prohibited the live telecast from being shown in the Miami area The blackout was challenged in MiamiDade District Court by attorney Ellis Rubin and although the judge denied Rubins request since he felt he did not have the power to overrule the NFL he agreed with Rubins argument that the blackout rule was unnecessary for the Super Bowl 8 The game was also the first Super Bowl to be carried live in the state of Alaska thanks to NBCs thenparent company RCA acquiring the Alaska Communications System from the United States Air Force 9 The complete original broadcast up until Chuck Howleys 2nd interception the first play of the fourth quarter exists however the rest of the fourth quarter is missing from network vaults Broadcast excerpts of the crucial fourthquarter plays recovered from the Canadian feed of NBCs original do exist and circulate among collectors Two different NFL Films game compilations also cover the fourth quarter plays in part The bands from Southern University and Southeast Missouri State College performed before the game while trumpeter Tommy Loy played the national anthem Loy also played the anthem before every Cowboys home game from the mid1960s until the late1980s The Southeast Missouri State Golden Eagle Band was featured during the halftime show along with singer Anita Bryant Game summaryedit First Quarteredit The first three possessions of the game ended quietly with each team punting after a threeandout Then on the first play of the Colts second drive Cowboys linebacker Chuck Howley intercepted a pass from Johnny Unitas and returned it 22 yards to the Colts 46yard line the first of 11 turnovers committed by both teams The Cowboys failed to take advantage of the turnover with a 15yard holding penalty 10 yards behind the line of scrimmage pushing them back to a 3rdand33 situation Walt Garrison gained 11 yards and Dallas had to punt However Colts punt returner Ron Gardin muffed the return and the loose ball was recovered by Cowboys safety Cliff Harris at the Colts 9yard line The Cowboys were unable to score a touchdown and settled for kicker Mike Clarks 14yard field goal to establish a 3–0 lead After a Colts punt which they failed to keep from reaching the end zone Cowboys quarterback Craig Morton completed a 41yard pass to Bob Hayes to reach the Colts 12yard line with a roughing the passer penalty adding 6 yards half the distance to the goal but Dallas was denied the end zone by the Baltimore defense for a second time Linebacker Ted Hendricks deflected Mortons pass on first down and running back Duane Thomas was tackled for a 1yard loss on second down Second Quarteredit Morton committed a 15yard intentional grounding penalty on third down to open the 2nd quarter pushing the Cowboys back to the 22yard line and forcing them to settle for Clarks 30yard field goal stretching the score to 60 On their next possession the Colts offense got a break After two straight incompletions to open the drive Unitas uncorked a pass to Eddie Hinton that was both high and behind the receiver The ball ricocheted off Hintons hands was tipped by Dallas defensive back Mel Renfro10 then landed in the arms of tight end John Mackey who sprinted 75 yards for a touchdown The Cowboys subsequently blocked Jim OBriens extra point attempt to keep the score tied at 66 with OBrien later saying that he was awfully nervous and hesitated a second too long before kicking it 6 Six minutes into the second quarter Cowboys linebacker Lee Roy Jordan tackled Unitas causing him to fumble Dallas recovered the loose ball at the Baltimore 28 and capitalized three plays later scoring on a 7yard touchdown pass from Morton to Thomas to establish a 136 lead The next time the Colts had the ball they quickly turned it over yet again with Unitas unleashing a fluttering interception to Renfro while being hit fiercely on a pass Unitas was knocked out of the game permanently on the play with a rib injury and was replaced by Earl Morrall who was widely blamed for the Colts loss in Super Bowl III The Cowboys starting from their own 15 were unable to score any points off the turnover After sustaining a 15yard pass interference penalty they punted After regaining possession the Colts offense led by Morrall stormed all the way to the Cowboys 2yard line with less than two minutes remaining in the half However the Cowboys defense stiffened Colts running back Norm Bulaich was stuffed on three consecutive rushing attempts from inside the 2yard line On fourth down Morrall threw an incomplete pass turning the ball over on downs and ending the half with Dallas leading 136 Third Quarteredit The second half was a parade of turnovers sloppy play penalties and missed opportunities Colts returner Jim Duncan fumbled the opening kickoff of the second half and Dallas recovered Then the Cowboys drove to the Colts 1yard line but Mike Curtis punched the ball loose from Cowboys running back Duane Thomas before crossing the end zone and the Colts took over at the 1 as Duncan was credited with the recovery–a controversial call because when the resulting pileup was sorted out Dallas center Dave Manders was holding the ball The energized Colts then drove to the Cowboys 44yard line but came up empty when OBriens 52yard field goal attempt fell short of the goal posts However instead of attempting to return the missed field goal Renfro allowed it to bounce inside their own 1yard line where it was downed by center Tom Goode NFL rules prior to 1974 allowed a field goal that fell short of the goal posts to be downed just like a punt that rule is still in effect in high school football I thought it would carry into the end zone Renfro explained after the game 11 Dallas backed up to its own end zone punted after three plays The Colts would have received the ball inside Dallas territory following the punt but a 15yard clipping penalty pushed the Colts back to their own 39 to begin the drive Two plays later Morrall completed a 45yard pass to running back Tom Nowatzke to reach the Cowboys 15yard line Fourth Quarteredit But three plays later on the first play of the fourth quarter Morrall threw an interception to Howley in the end zone to preserve the Cowboys 136 lead 12 After forcing the Cowboys to punt the Colts regained the ball on their own 18yard line still trailing 136 Aided by a pass interference call and a 23yard completion the Colts advanced into Dallas territory The Colts then attempted to fool the Cowboys with a fleaflicker play6713 resulting in one of the oddest plays in Super Bowl history Running back Sam Havrilak took a handoff and ran right intending to lateral the ball back to Morrall but Dallas lineman Jethro Pugh stormed into the backfield and prevented him from doing so Havrilak then threw a pass intended for Mackey but it was caught instead by Hinton who promptly took off for the end zone However as Hinton raced toward a touchdown Cowboys defensive back Cornell Green stripped him from behind at the 11yard line The loose ball bounced wildly in the field of play but somehow evaded recovery It was eventually pushed 20 yards through the back of the end zone for a touchback thus returning the ball to the Cowboys at their 20yard line Three plays after the turnover the Cowboys returned the favor Morton threw a pass that was intercepted by Colts safety Rick Volk who returned the ball 30 yards to the Cowboys 3yard line Morrall later referred to play as the play of the game 7 Two plays later the Colts scored on a 2yard touchdown run by Nowatzke OBriens extra point sailed through the uprights to tie the game at 13–13 OBrien says he was much calmer and more confident on this extra point than on the first one which was blocked The next two possessions ended in traded punts with the Cowboys eventually taking over in excellent field position at the Colts 48yard line with less than 2 minutes left in the game On the second play of this potential gamewinning drive Dallas committed a 15yard holding penalty its second offensive holding of the game on the 42yard line which was a spot foul pushing the team all the way back to its own 27yard line the NFL did not reduce the penalty for offensive holding to 10 yards until 1974 14 Then on second down and 35 Morton threw a pass that slipped through the hands of running back Dan Reeves and bounced for an interception into the arms of linebacker Mike Curtis who then returned the ball 13 yards to the Cowboys 28yard line 3 4 Defense Adding A Fifth Rusher Two plays later OBrien kicked the go ahead 32yard field goal giving Baltimore a 16–13 lead with five seconds left in the game 15 OBrien says he was on automatic and was so calm and concentrating so hard that he didnt hear anything and saw only the ball 6 In an enduring image from Super Bowl V after OBriens gamewinning field goal Bob Lilly took off his helmet and hurled it through the air in disgust The Cowboys received the ball again on their 40yard line with a few seconds remaining after OBriens ensuing squib kick but Mortons pass to Garrison was intercepted by Logan at the Baltimore 29yard line and time expired Morrall was the top passer of the game with 7 out of 15 completions for 147 yards with 1 interception Before being knocked out of the game Unitas completed 3 out of 9 passes for 88 yards and a touchdown with 2 interceptions Morton completed more passes than Morrall and Unitas combined 12 but finished the game with 118 fewer passing yards 127 and was intercepted 3 times all in the fourth quarter Mackey was the top receiver of the game with 2 receptions for 80 yards and a touchdown Nowatzke was the Colts leading rusher with 33 yards and a touchdown while also catching a pass for 47 yards Dallas running back Walt Garrison was the leading rusher of the game with 65 rushing yards and added 19 yards on 2 pass receptions Referencing the numerous turnovers Morrall said It really was a physical game I mean people were flying into one another out there 7 It was really a hardhitting game wrote OBrien It wasnt just guys dropping the ball They fumbled because they got the snot knocked out of them 6 Said Tom Landry I havent been around many games where the players hit harder Sometimes people watch a game and see turnovers and they talk about how sloppy the play was The mistakes in that game werent invented at least not by the people who made them Most were forced 7 We figured we could win if our offense didnt put us into too many holes said 35yearold Colts lineman Billy Ray Smith who was playing in his last NFL game Let me put it this way they didnt put us into any holes we couldnt get out of 16 Don McCafferty became the first rookie head coach to win a Super Bowl The feat would not be repeated until George Seifert led the San Francisco 49ers to victory in Super Bowl XXIV McCafferty was also the first Super Bowlwinning coach who did not wear coat and tie opting for a shortsleeved tshirt with a mock turtleneck Two rule changes that were adopted before the 1974 season were When the defensive team commits an illegal use of hands arms or body foul from behind the line of scrimmage the penalty will be assessed from the previous spot instead of the spot of the foul The penalties for offensive holding illegal use of hands and tripping were reduced from 15yards to 10yards These would have reduced the severity of the two Dallas offensive holding penalties in Super Bowl V 1718 Box scoreedit 1
