Countdown to 2020 Super Bowl LIV Miami: Super Bowl XXVII

As the NFL prepares to kick off Week 7 on the Road to Super Bowl 54 in Miami, the 1990’s AFC powerhouse Buffalo Bills would square up against the Dallas Cowboys in their third-straight Super Bowl appearance, Super Bowl XXVII.

January 31, 1993

A third straight Super Bowl appearance for the Buffalo Bills would seem like a good thing, but Bills fans were disappointed as the team would drop their third-straight Super Bowl, losing to the Cowboys 52-17. Super Bowl XXVII was played once again in Pasadena, California, at the famed Rose Bowl, in front of over 98,000 fans.

Super Bowl XXVII would go on to be a history-making performance by the Dallas Cowboys, who would force a record nine turnovers throughout the game, four interceptions and five forced fumbles. Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman would take home Super Bowl MVP honors, completing 22 of his 30 pass attempts for 273 yards and four touchdowns.

From this point forward, the Super Bowl halftime show would be all about getting that top performing artist to conduct the entertainment. In 1993, Michael Jackson would handle Super Bowl XXVII halftime duties, in one of the most memorable halftime performances even still to this day. Nearly 91 million viewers watched Super Bowl XXVII from the comfort of their own homes, and the cost of a 30-second spot was around $850,000!
