SUPER BOWL 5 (January 17, 1970 at Miami - 79,204)

BALTIMORE COLTS (13-2-1) 16, DALLAS COWBOYS (11-4) 13 - In the first Super Bowl game played on artificial turf, the two teams committed a Super Bowl record 11 combined turnovers in the game, and the Colts' 7 turnovers were the most ever committed by a winning team in a Super Bowl. Dallas also set a Super Bowl record with 10 penalties, costing them 133 yards. It was finally settled with nine seconds left when Colts rookie kicker Jim O'Brien kicked a 32-yard FG. In order to win the game, Baltimore had to overcome a 13–6 deficit at the half. It is also the only Super Bowl in which the Most Valuable Player Award was given to a member of the losing team: Cowboys Linebacker Chuck Howley, who intercepted two passes. It was the first time a QB didn't win the award. Howley refused to accept the award because it was meaningless to him after his team lost.
