1. Steve Young vs. San Diego Chargers
After back-to-back losses in the NFC Championship game for two years running, the San Francisco 49ers finally made it to the Super Bowl. Their opponents in the showpiece event were the unfavored Chargers. Super Bowl XXIX was an absolute doozy, with 49ers quarterback Young in the middle of it all.
Fans were saying that he was never going to win it. Well, he definitely proved them wrong as he put in the performance of a lifetime. To sum up, he completed two-thirds of his passes (24-of-36) for 325 yards and a Super Bowl-record six touchdown passes. Young also ran 49 yards on five carries as the 49ers became the first franchise to win five Super Bowls.
