In 1966 and 1967, the 'Boys made it to the NFL Championship Game, but lost both times to the Green Bay Packers. The 1968 and 1969 campaigns ended in Playoff losses against the Cleveland Browns. In 1970, Dallas made it all the way to the Super Bowl for the first time, but came up three points short versus the Baltimore Colts.
