In 1975, For 59 minutes, 36 seconds, Tom Landryʹs Dallas Cowboys had been outplaying Bud Grantʹs Minnesota Vikings. Yet all they had to show for it in this NFC divisional playoff game was a 14-10 deficit. With 24 seconds left, the Cowboys had more than half a field of tundra to negotiate. The Hail Mary, a play that succeeds about as often as its name implies, looked like the only salvation for quarterback Roger Staubach and his team. The ball was snapped. Tackle Rayfield Wright drove Carl Eller, whoʹd been in the Dallas backfield all day, to the outskirts of Bloomington. Given ample time, Staubach launched. Downfield, acrobatic receiver Drew Pearson was double-covered by Terry Brown and Nate Wright. Suddenly, Brown melted away. The pass was underthrown. Pearson slowed and reached back, arms outstretched like a supplicant. Wright slipped, the ball dropped into Pearsonʹs arms and nestled against his hip as he side-stepped into the end zone for the winning score. Grant called it offensive interference. Landry called it a miracle.
