1979 Oilers 30 at Cowboys 24

The incomparable Earl Campbell bulldozes for 195 yards and 2 TDs on 33 carries en route to a thrilling Houston victory in a Thanksgiving Day shootout, outshining Roger Staubach's impressive 21 of 30 passing performance. Staubach opens the game with a 56-yd TD bomb to Drew Pearson, but Campbell immediately answers with a scintillating 61-yd TD blast down the right sideline. And so it goes, back and forth. A very entertaining game from start to finish and my personal favorite "non-Steelers" game.
