Texas Stadium opened as home to the Dallas Cowboys in 1971. It was built just in time for the Cowboys’ rise in NFL prominence in the 1970s. In fact, in its opening season, Texas Stadium hosted the NFC Championship in which the Cowboys defeated the San Francisco 49ers, 14-3, and went on to win Super Bowl VI. Following that win, the Stadium hosted three more NFC Championships in the 70s and Cowboys won one more Super Bowl in the 1977 season. In the 1990s, Texas Stadium again hosted two more NFC Championships both of which led the Cowboys to their most recent Super Bowl championships in the 1993 and 1995 seasons. Architecturally, the Stadium was most well known for its partial roof which covered the stands but not the field. Thus, D. D. Lewis, the then-Cowboys linebacker is noted for his paraphrased comment: “Texas Stadium has a hole in its roof so God can watch His favorite team play.” In 2008, the Cowboys played their last game at Texas Stadium, which was demolished two years later.
