The pre-game show for one of the best NFL playoff games of all time was this 1975 NFC Divisional Playoff game between the Dallas Cowboys, led by, of course, Tom Landry and QB Roger Staubach vs. the Minnesota Vikings, led by, of course, Bud Grant and QB Fran Tarkenton. What is strange about this game is that the 1970s Vikings were famous for losing Super Bowls.  They lost three in the 1970s alone and one after the 1969 season. Actually, technically they lost four in the 1970s if you want to be real technical, since Super Bowl 4 was played in January 1970. But they actually had the better team in this game but lost on a Hail Mary touchdown pass at the end of this game.
