The Super Bowl Champions.
|A world championship was at stake, and the San Francisco 49ers were in a panic. Trailing 16-13 late in Super Bowl XXIII, the offense was 92 yards away from a championship. It was a moment for legends. Bit by bit, Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana marched the 49ers the length of the field. His 10-yard scoring strike to John Taylor with 34 ticks left on the clock lifted the Niners to a third Super Bowl title. The drive was a culmination of a season's worth of execution, raw athleticism, and tenacity for the '88 49ers. Despite a quarterback controversy and a 6-5 start, the team never lost their focus. Join NFL Films as they retell the story of the '88 Niners, a club that sealed the 49er dynasty. America's Game uses exclusive interviews from Bill Walsh, Harris Barton and Roger Craig to recount the exciting story behind San Francisco's third championship season.|
