Counting Down to Super Bowl LI: Super Bowl XXIV

Playing in their second straight Super Bowl, quarterback Joe Montana and the San Francisco 49ers would face off against the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XXIV.

Played on January 28, 1990, the 49ers would go on to defeat Denver 55-10, to win their second-straight Super Bowl title in front of 72,919 fans at the Louisiana Super Dome in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Montana would go on to win his third Super Bowl MVP, completing nearly 76% of his passes. Montana also became just the third person in NFL history to win both the AP League-wide Most Valuable Player award, as well as the Super Bowl MVP, within the same season.

Super Bowl XXIV was aired on the CBS network, and a 30 second commercial would cost a company around $700,000. There were a total of 73.85 million viewers tuning in to watch this game. Aaron Neville sang the National Anthem and Pete Fountain led the halftime show. Pat Summerall and John Madden were once again announcers for the Super Bowl in 1990.
