    The front page of The Dallas Morning News' Sports Day from Jan. 18, 1993.

    Those were the days.

    It's been 25 years, to the day, since former Dallas Cowboys head coach Jimmy Johnson yelled out "How 'bout them Cowboys?!" following the team's win in the 1993 NFC Championship Game against the San Francisco 49ers.

    The win put the team in Super Bowl XXVII, the first of three they'd win over the next four seasons.
