Joe Montana breaks the tension before the Niners' late fourth-quarter drive. "Look," the QB says, pointing into the crowd, "isn't that John Candy?" Eleven plays later Montana finds John Taylor for a 10-yard TD to cap a 92-yard march.
On San Francisco's opening drive in what would be the most lopsided Super Bowl, Joe Montana hits Jerry Rice, who bounces off a defender at Denver's eight-yard line before going in to complete a 20-yard scoring play, the first of his three TD catches.
With eight seconds left, Buffalo's Scott Norwood's potential game-winning 47-yard field goal attempt sails wide right and the favored Bills go down. It is the first of four straight Super Bowl losses by Buffalo, and easily the most heartbreaking.
