Miami Dolphins (AFC)
San Francisco 49ers (NFC)
The 49ers rolled to their second Super Bowl title.
Rookie Dan Marino and his high-powered passing attack were held silent after the first quarter, as the 49ers rolled to their second Super Bowl title.
The Dolphins actually built a 10-7 lead after the first 15 minutes, that saw a record 17 points scored. After Marino and SF QB Joe Montana, the game's MVP, exchanged TD passes, it was all 49ers.
Montana completed 24-of-35 passes for a record 331 yards and three touchdowns and joined Green Bay's Bart Starr and Pittsburgh's Terry Bradshaw as the only two-time Super Bowl MVPs.
Roger Craig set a Super Bowl record by scoring three touchdowns on pass receptions of 8 and 16 yards and a run of two yards. San Francisco's 537 total net yards eclipsed the previous mark of 429 held by Oakland in Super Bowl XI.
