6 Unforgettable Super Bowl MVP Performances
The Super Bowl is the biggest stage for National Football League players to have career-defining moments and make memories that will hopefully live eternally in the annals of professional football greatness. So many notable stars have shined on Super Bowl Sunday, and it’s important to give credit where it’s due. But a few have taken it to the next level, putting on amazing statistical shows that will be remembered forever — let’s take a look at six of the most memorable Super Bowl performances in NFL history.
1. Joe Montana, Super Bowl XXIV (1990)
Quarterback Joe Montana has had an astounding amount of amazing games throughout his Hall of Fame career, but the one that stands out in many people’s minds was in 1990, when his San Francisco 49ers trounced the Denver Broncos by a score of 55-10 in Super Bowl XXIV. Montana finished with 297 passing yards, five touchdowns, and an incredible 147.6 QB rating. What’s most impressive is that he put up these stats against a stingy Broncos defense that had only been giving up an average of 14.1 yards per game to their opponents. As a four-time Super Bowl champion with the Niners, Montana is the only player to win three MVP awards.
