Originally written on Know Your Dallas Cowboys: The Blog  |  Last updated 11/18/14
The Cowboys were once known for winning this trophy. Now the team just has an odd knack for playing teams that win this trophy. This is becoming rather peculiar. For the seventh consecutive year, the Dallas Cowboys have faced the team that eventually won the Super Bowl. This year, Dallas lost to the Baltimore Ravens 31-29 on October 14. Baltimore, of course, beat San Francisco to win Super Bowl XLVII. The Cowboys have now faced the team that eventually won the Super Bowl a total of 39 times. Dallas has a record of 9-32 in those games.
