One of the most decorated teams in NFL history, only three teams have more playoff wins than the Dallas Cowboys. The NFL is a "what have you done for me lately?" kind of league though, and despite this status as an all-time great, more recent results have painted America's Team in a different light.

Here's a look at the Cowboys' playoff history.

When Did the Dallas Cowboys Win Their Last Playoff Game?

The Dallas Cowboys' most recent win in the NFL Playoffs was back in the 2018 season, when they defeated the Seattle Seahawks, 24-22, in the NFC Wild Card Round on January 5, 2019. They went on to lose to the Los Angeles Rams the following week in the Divisional Round.

Since then the Cowboys missed the playoffs twice (2019 and 2020) and lost their first playoff game in 2021. Their next opportunity to earn a win will come on Monday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where Dallas is favored by 2.5 points on the road according to FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.

While we don't have to look too far back to find individual wins, the Cowboys haven't won multiple playoff games in a single postseason since their last Super Bowl run during the 1995 campaign. So how far back do we have to go to find that tradition of greatness in Dallas?

When Was the Dallas Cowboys' Last Super Bowl Win?

The last time the Cowboys won the Super Bowl was in the 1995 season. That marked their third Super Bowl win in a four-year stretch after previous victories in 1992 and 1993.

Since that last Super Bowl win, however, Dallas has a disappointing 4-11 record in playoff games.
