The Dallas Cowboys have enjoyed success few teams in the NFL can relate to.

The Cowboys joined the NFL in 1960, becoming the most southern team in the league, and like most new franchises struggled in their first few seasons. It did not take long before a dramatic uptick in form though as the Cowboys made the play-offs every year from 1966 to 1973 and won their first Super Bowl in 1971 in an emphatic win over the Miami Dolphins.

Another Super Bowl followed six years later before the Cowboys' dominance faded in 1982, and so started a nine-year stretch in which Dallas only reached the post-season twice.

But as the 1980s came to an end, life under new owner Jerry Jones was about to begin, and under head coaches Jimmy Johnson and Barry Switzer, the Cowboys were crowned Super Bowl champions three times in four years in the early 1990s.

Only two teams have lifted the Super Bowl on more occasions than the Cowboys, but it has been a long time since Dallas fans have enjoyed watching their team compete in the showpiece event.

Exactly how successful have the Cowboys been? DAZN finds out below.
