- 1994 San Francisco 49ers
Five years after Joe Montana’s last Super Bowl championship, the Niners found themselves back in the role of champions with Steve Young at quarterback.
Young may have been in Montana’s shadow for many years, but he emerged as one of the most accurate and best quarterbacks in the game’s history. He led the Niners to a 13-3 record during the regular season, but he knew his true test would not come until they defeated the two-time defending Super Bowl champion Dallas Cowboys in the postseason.
That came in the NFC Championship game. The Niners beat their long-time rivals by a 38-28 margin as Young threw for two touchdowns and ran for another. San Francisco culminated its championship season with a 49-26 victory over the upset-minded San Diego Chargers, and Young famously celebrated his only Super Bowl title as a starter by proverbially throwing the monkey off of his back.
