Then: Montana led the 49ers to their first Super Bowl title by throwing for one TD, running for another, and leading several impressive scoring drives, including one of 92 yards, in a 26-21 win over Cincinnati. … In San Francisco’s 38-16 victory over Miami in SB XIX, Montana threw for a Super Bowl record 331 yards, completing three for touchdowns while also rushing for a TD. … His performance in SB XXIV made Montana the game’s MVP for an unmatched third time. In that game he set Super Bowl record with five touchdown passes in a lopsided 55-10 win over Denver.
