The Cowboys began the 1977 season 8-0 before losing in consecutive weeks to the St. Louis Cardinals in a Monday night home game and the Steelers in Pittsburgh. After the losses, however, the Cowboys won their final four regular season games. In the postseason, the Cowboys routed the Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings before defeating the Broncos in the Super Bowl in New Orleans. Bob Ryan, an NFL films editor, would dub the Cowboys "America's Team" following this season, a nickname that has earned derision from non-Cowboys fans but has stuck through both good times and bad. (actually, the America's Team moniker was attached to the Cowboys after the 1978 season).
