SUPER BOWL 24

Jan. 28, 1990

At New Orleans-72,919

San Francisco 13.14.14.14-55

Denver .3..0..7..3-10

Denver never had a chance.

The San Francisco 49ers routed the Broncos 55-10 in the most lopsided Super Bowl. It was big easy in the Big Easy for Joe Montana and company.

The 49ers became the first repeat NFL champion in a decade and tied the Pittsburgh Steelers as a pinnacle of Super Bowl perfection with four wins in four tries. The Broncos, on the other hand, lost their fourth Super Bowl and John Elway fell to 0-3.

Joe Montana threw for a record five touchdowns, three to Jerry Rice, and also set a record with 13 straight pass completions. Montana completed 22 of 29 passes for 297 yards and Rice caught seven passes for 148 yards.

By halftime, it was 27-3 and after three quarters, it was 41-10.

Montana also set five Super Bowl career records, including his third Super Bowl Most Valuable Player award, and San Francisco's point total was the most ever.
