This Day in Buffalo Sports History / Jan. 30, 1994 -- Not so super

The headline in The Buffalo News the next day was "Woe for Four!" That was a pretty good description of the Buffalo Bills' fourth straight Super Bowl loss this time it was to the Dallas Cowboys, a 30-13 loss in Atlanta.

The Cowboys won their second straight title. It wasn't as convincing as the previous year's 35-point blowout, but it was more than good enough. The Bills led, 13-6, at halftime. Then early in the third quarter, Buffalo's Thurman Thomas fumbled and safety James Washington scooped up the ball and ran 46 yards for a touchdown.

The Cowboys scored 24 straight points to break the game open.

"That's probably going to be part of our identity for years and years to come -- that we lost four Super Bowls in a row," the Bills' Steve Tasker said.

Tasker proved to be a very good prophet.
