Billed as a matchup of the NFL's top two quarterbacks, Joe Montana (and his defense) easily got the better of Dan Marino.

Montana completed 24 of 35 passes and threw for a Super Bowl record 331 yards and three touchdowns. He also rushed five times for 59 yards and a touchdown. Running back Roger Craig caught two of Montana's touchdown passes and ran for another to set a Super Bowl record.

The San Francisco defense sacked the record-setting Marino four times in the game and held the Dolphins to 25 yards rushing.

Montana joined Green Bay's Bart Starr and Pittsburgh's Terry Bradshaw as the only two-time Super Bowl most valuable players. Montana was the MVP in the 1982 Super Bowl against Cincinnati.

Marino would never make the Super Bowl again in his Hall of Fame career.
