On Dallas's first possession of the second half, with the score tied at 13, Emmitt Smith powers an eight-play, 64-yard drive by rushing seven times for 61 yards, including a 15-yard scamper off right tackle to score what holds up as the decisive touchdown.
On the third offensive play of the game, Steve Young fakes a handoff, freezing the pass rush. Then he hits Jerry Rice (80) down the middle for a 44-yard touchdown, despite double coverage. It is the first of three Young-to-Rice TD connections.
Dallas cornerback Larry Brown makes his second interception with four minutes remaining and the Cowboys leading 20--17. Brown returns the ball 33 yards to the Pittsburgh six, setting up Emmitt Smith's second rushing touchdown.
