Dallas Cowboys Super Bowl: How many Super Bowls have Cowboys played?

The Dallas Cowboys are undoubtedly one of the most storied teams in the entire NFL, one of the biggest winners of Super Bowl titles and in the 2021 season they have once again given hope to their fans that the team will play again in Super Sunday.

This year, coach Mike McCarthy’s team won the NFC East title after finishing the regular season with a 12-5 record and in the Wild Card round will face one of their perennial rivals, the San Francisco 49ers, looking to advance to the divisional round.

As a historic franchise, the Cowboys have advanced to the Super Bowl on several occasions, winning it more than half of the times they have played, and here is a look back at their appearances in the NFL’s final game.

The Dallas Cowboys have played a total of 8 Super Bowls in their history, winning only five of those games, enough to occupy the second place among the teams with the most Super Bowl titles, tied with the 49ers and barely surpassed by the New England Patriots and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
