San Francisco 49ers Defeats Miami Dolphins in Super Bowl XIX.  Joe Montana named MVP.

The San Francisco 49ers earned their second Super Bowl title with a dominating offense and a dominating defense that stiffled Miami's explosive passing attack.

Miami held a 10-7 lead at the end of the first quarter, which represented the most points scored by two teams in an opening quarter of a Super Bowl. However, the 49ers used excellent field position in the second to build a 28-16 lead going into the second half.

Running back Roger Craig set a Super Bowl record by scoring three touchdowns on pass receptions of eight and 16 yards and a run of two yards.

San Francisco's Joe Montana was voted the game's most valuable player. He joined Green Bay's Bart Starr and Pittsburgh's Terry Bradshaw as the only two-time Super Bowl most valuable players. Montana completed 24 of 35 passes for a Super Bowl-record 331 yards and three touchdowns, and also rushed five times for 59 yards, including a 6-yard touchdown scamper.

Craig had 58 yards on 15 carries and caught seven passes for 77 yards. Wendell Tyler rushed 13 times for 65 yards and had four catches for 70 yards. Dwight Clark had six receptions for 77 yards, while Russ Francis had 5 for 60.

San Francisco's 537 total net yards bettered the previous Super Bowl record of 429 yards by Oakland in Super Bowl XI. The 49ers also held a time of possession advantage over the Dolphins of 37:11 to 22:49.
