2019 Atlanta Super Bowl Countdown: Super Bowl XXIII

Reliving one of the most iconic drives in the history of the Super Bowl, the Road to the 2019 Super Bowl in Atlanta leads us to Super bowl XXIII between the San Francisco 49ers and Cincinnati Bengals.

The San Francisco 49ers would take home the Super Bowl XXIII trophy, defeating the Bengals 20-16 in one of the most highly remembered Super Bowls. This close game was played on January 22, 1989 in Miami Florida at Joe Robbie Stadium, in front of 75,129 people in attendance.

MVP of Super Bowl XXIII was 49ers wide receiver Jerry Rice, he caught 11 passes for 215 yards and a touchdown. This was the second time the Bengals and 49ers had met in the Super Bowl. One of the most memorable parts of the game is when Joe Montana made a pass to John Taylor with just a few seconds left on the clock, still to this day known as “The Catch.”

The National Anthem was sung by Billy Joel and the halftime show was put on by “Be Bop Bamboozled” – South Florida-area dancers and performers including Elvis Presto, and 3D effects. The Super Bowl was aired on NBC and had a total of 81.6 million viewers, and the cost of a 30 second commercial for Super Bowl XXIII was around $675,000.
