San Franscisco 49ers Defeats Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XXIV.  Joe Montana named MVP.

NFC super power San Francisco won their fourth Super Bowl championship with a convincing 55-10 victory over AFC champion Denver.

In their first three Super Bowl appearances, the Broncos lost by 17 points, 19 points, and 32 points. Continuing their downward spiral, the Broncos lost their record-tying fourth Super Bowl in a 45-point draubing at the hands of the San Francisco 49ers. 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. Denver managed to control the ball for just a bit more than 20 minutes. Montana won a record third MVP award for his 22-of-29, 297-yard, and earned another record with a five touchdown day.

The 49ers, who also won Super Bowls XVI, XIX, and XXIII, tied the Pittsburgh Steelers for most Super Bowl victories (Steelers captured Super Bowls IX, X, XIII, and XIV).

San Francisco's 55 points smashed 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. Interceptions by Michael Walter and Chet Brooks ended the Broncos' first two possessions of the second half.

Jerry Rice, Super Bowl XXIII most valuable player, caught seven passes for 148 yards and three touchdowns. The 49ers' domination included first downs (28 to 12), net yards (461 to 167), and time of possession (39:31 to 20:29).
