The 1971 Super Bowl, officially known as Super Bowl V, was played on January 17, 1971 at the Orange Bowl in Miami, Florida. This game was a nail-biter, with the Baltimore Colts defeating the Dallas Cowboys by a score of 16-13. The game was notable for its close score and for the many mistakes made by both teams, including multiple turnovers and penalties. The game-winning field goal was kicked by Colts kicker Jim O'Brien in the final seconds of the game.
