- Niners Strike Gold: San Francisco wins its fifth Super Bowl
- In a Rush: Sanders leads with 1,883 yards; Emmitt Smith scores on 21 runs
- Dee-Fense: In best division race, Pittsburgh tops Cleveland in battle to top D’s
The Joe Montana era in San Francisco was over, but there was a new MVP in town, and Steve Young clinched his Hall of Fame credentials by leading the 49ers to their firth Super Bowl in 14 years, and first since Montana last did so in 1989. Passing and running for 42 touchdowns, Young led the NFL in passer rating and found Hall of Fame WR Jerry Rice 112 times for 13 TDs and an NFL-best 1,499 yards.
The Niners’ 505 points and +209 point-differential were far and away the best in the NFL. Dallas (12-4) was second with 414 points and +166, but San Francisco dispatched Dallas 38-28 in the NFC title game, then pulverized AFC champ San Diego, 49-26, as Young threw six scoring passes, three to Rice.
The survivor among rivals in the bitterly fought AFC Central was 12-4 Pittsburgh, which beat 11-5 Cleveland twice, then a third time in the playoffs. The Browns yielded only 204 points, best in the NFL and the Steelers were second at 234.
