Every single Dallas Cowboys fan you talk to will bring up the fact that it has now been 24 years since America’s Team last appeared in a Super Bowl. That is a very harsh fact of the organization nowadays. You can’t win it if you aren’t there.
Well, to get there, the franchise has to appear in and win the NFC Championship game. And for the Cowboys, that drought is nearing 25 long and painful years. It’s a drought only a few of the most dysfunctional organizations around the league are experiencing.
Since the Cowboys defeated the Green Bay Packers 38-27 in the 1995 NFC Championship game, capping off a fourth-straight appearance, a total of 24 of the 31 other NFL franchises have appeared in a conference championship game.
