Super Bowl 29

Jan. 29, 1995

At Miami-74,107

San Diego ..7..3..8..8-26

San Francisco

Steve Young threw a record six touchdown passes, and the 49ers became the first team to win five Super Bowls. Young, the game's MVP, completed 24 of 36 passes for 325 yards, in escaping from the shadow of San Francisco great Joe Montana, who led the team to four championships in as many tries.

The 49ers scored their first touchdown 1:24 into the game, on a 44-yard pass from Young to Jerry Rice, who somehow was covered (or uncovered, really) by only a linebacker on the play. Ricky Watters followed with a 51-yard touchdown reception to give San Francisco a 14-0 lead with 10:05 still to play in the first quarter.

Rice and Watters each tied the Super Bowl record with three touchdowns. Rice also established career records for receptions, yards and touchdowns in a Super Bowl. The 75 points scored in the game also set a record.
