Jan. 28, 1996
vs. Pittsburgh in Tempe, Ariz.
W 27-17
Became just the third quarterback to guide his team to three Super Bowl titles.

Dec. 15, 1996
vs. New England
W 12-6
Passed for just 169 yards in a win against the Patriots, but those were enough to vault Aikman past Roger Staubach into sole possession of the Cowboys alltime lead in passing yards.

Sept. 12, 1999
at Washington
W 41-35 OT
Rallied the Cowboys from a 21-point deficit entering the fourth quarter of the season opener by leading Dallas on four TD drives (70, 66, 90, 95 yards) and throwing a career-high five TD passes.

Oct. 24, 1999
vs. Washington
W 38-20
Scored his only touchdown of the season on a one-yard run. More memorable: The win was his 87th of the 1990s--the most by a QB in any decade. He finished the '90s with 90 wins.
