Super Bowl XXIII Final Drive (5/11)

Down 16-13 with three minutes remainin in the game, the 49ers got the ball at their own 8-yard line. Pro Football Hall of Famer Joe Montana lived up to his “Joe Cool” nickname, deftly driving the 49ers 92 yards for the winning score in a tightly contested Super Bowl rematch with the Bengals, who the 49ersfaced in Super Bowl XVI seven seasons prior.

Montana capped the 92-yard drive for victory with a 10-yard touchdown pass to receiver John Taylor with 34 seconds remaining. A win the following year — a 55-10 hammering of the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XXIV — solidified the 49ers’ status as the “Team of the ’80s.”
