The "Super Sundays" That Could Have Been...26-30

With the first 25 editions in the books, let's jump right in to games 26-30.

1991 (XXVI) - Washington (NFC) vs. Buffalo (AFC)
ACTUAL: A great combination. The Skins were on a roll this season and looked good as the away team in their traditional home garb.


ALTERNATE: Growing up watching the 'Skins in white at home at RFK, I've never liked the burgundy for them.
EDGE: ACTUAL

1992 (XXVII) - Buffalo (AFC) vs. Dallas (NFC)
ACTUAL: Is it fair to have back-to-back games with the same teams in the same combos? When it looks this good, yeah, it's OK, even with the Cowboys sartorial idiosyncrasies.  I think the Bills just fumbled again!

ALTERNATE: Um...no. Alone in a vacuum, I love the Cowboys road combos much more than the home versions. If only Buffalo wasn't monowhite, this would have clearly been the winner.
EDGE: ACTUAL

1993 (XXVIII) - Dallas (NFC) vs. Buffalo (AFC)
ACTUAL: I'm having the strangest feeling of deja vu.

ALTERNATE: I'm having the strangest feeling of deja vu.
EDGE: ACTUAL

1994 (XXIX) - San Diego (AFC) vs. San Francisco (NFC)
ACTUAL: In keeping with the throwback theme from the NFL's 75th Anniversary season, San Francisco, which wore their throwbacks for the majority of the season, wore them here.

ALTERNATE: Assuming they still would have worn them if they had been the road team, we would have seen this. There's just not as much color splashed into this hypothetical pairing.
EDGE: ACTUAL

1995 (XXX) - Dallas (NFC) vs. Pittsburgh (AFC)
ACTUAL: Dallas gets their third win in four years with this combo thanks to the Bills and now Neil O'Donnell.

ALTERNATE: However, had Dallas been able to wear the 'fauxback' jerseys...oh, what could have been!
EDGE: ALTERNATE

Not to sound like a broken record again, but it appears to have become a habit with the ACTUALs grabbing 4 of the 5 meetings.  This puts them ahead of the ALTERNATES by a   21-9 advantage.

Hope is not lost, though. Don't tell anyone but I've peaked ahead at the next segment and...sniff, sniff...I smell a comeback brewing!
