SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS (16-2) 55, DENVER BRONCOS (13-5) 10 - NFC titlist San Francisco won its fourth Super Bowl championship with a 55-10 victory over AFC champion Denver. The 49ers, who also won Super Bowls XVI, XIX, and XXIII, tied the Pittsburgh Steelers for most Super Bowl victories. The Steelers captured Super Bowls IX, X, XIII, and XIV. San Francisco's 55 points broke the previous Super Bowl scoring mark of 46 points by Chicago in Super Bowl XX. San Francisco scored touchdowns on four of its six first-half possessions to hold a 27-3 lead at halftime. Interceptions by Michael Walter and Chet Brooks ended the Broncos' first two possessions of the second half. San Francisco quarterback Joe Montana was named the Super Bowl most valuable player for a record third time. Montana completed 22 of 29 passes for 297 yards and a Super Bowl-record five touchdowns. Jerry Rice, Super Bowl XXIII most valuable player, caught seven passes for 148 yards and three touchdowns. The 49ers' domination included first downs (28 to 12), net yards (461 to 167), and time of possession (39:31 to 20:29).

INTERNATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE - The only mention of this league, perhaps an offshoot of the NAFL, came in May 1989, when Donald Trump announced that he has sent letters to Pete Rozelle, Commissioner of the NFL, and Tex Schramm threatening legal action against the NFL if they proceed with their plans for the IFL. Trump, the former owner of the USFL's New Jersey Generals, claimed the NFL stole his idea of an international football league. The NFL's version of the IFL became the World League of American Football.
