  • NFC Champ San Francisco won its FOURTH Super Bowl championship with a 55-10 victory over AFC champion Denver.

    9.5
    The 49ers, who also won Super Bowls XVI, XIX, and XXIII, tied the Pittsburgh Steelers for most Super Bowl victories. The Steelers captured Super Bowls IX, X, XIII, and XIV. San Francisco's 55 points broke the previous Super Bowl scoring mark of 46 points by Chicago in Super Bowl XX. San Francisco scored touchdowns on four of its six first-half possessions to hold a 27-3 lead at halftime. San Francisco quarterback Joe Montana was named the Super Bowl most valuable player for a record third time. Montana completed 22 of 29 passes for 297 yards and a Super Bowl-record five touchdowns.moreless
  • Joe Montana and the 49ers go for their 2nd straight Super Bowl win.

    9.4
    ...and they get it! Yes they do! The San Francisco 49ers go on to win, and score to biggest amount of points in a Super Bowl of 55. The overall score was San Francisco 55, Denver 10. The margin of 45 points was also the hugest in Super Bowl history. To me, its hard to imagine them San Francisco 49ers scoring that many points in a Super Bowl, or a playoff game, or a regular season game, or even a preseason game for a long time. The 49ers haven't really been a good time since then when they won these Super Bowls around the 1980's and 1990's. I think Joe Montana was all they had, and when he retired, they've been getting pretty bad records in every season since then. Oh well. 55 points still, thats impressive.moreless
