Super Bowl XXIV
San Francisco 55, Denver 10
MVP: QB Joe Montana, San Francisco
In their first three Super Bowl appearances, Denver lost by 17 points, 19 points, and 32 points. Continuing their downward spiral, the Broncos lost their fourth in a 45-point massacre to San Francisco. By winning their fourth title, the Niners matched the Steelers record of four Super Bowl wins. San Francisco's offense operated at peak efficiency and with stunning ease, scoring two touchdowns in each quarter. Meanwhile, the Broncos and John Elway were held to 167 total yards and they managed to control the ball for just a bit more than 20 minutes. Montana won his record third MVP award for his 22 of 29, 297 yard, five touchdown day.
