Sept. 5, 1983 -- Dallas at Washington
ABC Sports Online

Danny White passed for three second-half touchdowns and ran for another to rally Dallas from a 23-3 halftime deficit to beat the defending Super Bowl champions. The Cowboys compiled only 85 first-half yards, but exploded for 271 in the final two quarters. White completed bombs of 75 and 51 yards to Tony Hill to put the Cowboys within striking distance. His 1-yard TD run 2:35 into the final quarter put Dallas up 24-23. Joe Theismann tried to rally Washington, but Ron Fellows' 33-yard interception return set up Doug Cosbie's 1-yard scoring catch two plays later to clinch the game.
