After much consideration, some arguing, and even a few tears, we present the NFL RUSH Top 5 Super Bowls List
#3 - Super Bowl XXIII - San Francisco 49ers 20, Cincinnati Bengals 16
The #3 greatest Super Bowl ever started off as a defensive struggle, with the score only 3-3 at halftime. The second half, however, saw some of the greatest action in Super Bowl history.
The fireworks began after a 49ers field goal made the score 6-6, when Stanford Jennings 93-yard touchdown kickoff return gave the Bengals a 13–6 lead.
The 49ers immediately responded with a four play, 85-yard, touchdown drive, ending when Joe Montana hit Jerry Rice on a 14-yard touchdown pass to tie the game at 13–13.
Rice, who was named the Super Bowl MVP, caught 11 passes for a Super Bowl record 215 yards and a touchdown.
The Bengals marched on 10-play, 46-yard drive, with huge plays from Ira Hillary and Ickey Woods. Jim Breech kicked a 40-yard field goal to give the Bengals a 16–13 lead with 3:20 left in the game.
After the kickoff, the 49ers found themselves on their own 8 yard line, needing to go 92 yards in 3 minutes to win the game. And that's just what Montana did, marching the 49ers down the field and throwing a 10-yard TD strike to John Taylor with only 34 seconds left in the game. A fantastic victory!
Watch Super Bowl XLVIII at 6:30pm ET on Sunday, February 2nd on Fox.
