Larry Csonka ran for 80 yards and a touchdown.
Nov. 25, 1993 Fish 16, Cowboys 14
The infamous Snow Bowl, and Leon Lett game. Cowboys led 14-13 until Lett touched that blocked field goal that Pete Stoyanovich turned into the game-winning kick. It was Jimmy Johnson's last loss as the head coach of the Cowboys.
If you care, this is too fun not to watch ...

Dolphins QB Dan Marino threw five interceptions and was so bad he was replaced by Damon Huard. Troy Aikman threw for 232 yards and Emmitt Smith ran for 103 yards.
