San Francisco 49ers

From the 1988 to the 1993 seasons, the 49ers played in 5 out of 6 NFC Championship Games, winning Super Bowls XXIII and XXIV. But after losing 2 consecutive NFC Championship Games to the Dallas Cowboys in 1992 and 1993, San Francisco brought in several veteran free agents to strengthen their suspect defense. Among the players signed were defensive lineman Richard Dent, Charles Mann, and Rickey Jackson, linebackers Ken Norton Jr. and Gary Plummer, and cornerback Deion Sanders.

Many critics and other NFL teams were angered at San Francisco's liberal use of the free agent rules to "buy a championship". In order to pay everyone, the team asked a number of players to renegotiate their contracts to free up money. And some free agents like Jackson and Sanders accepted one-year salaries far below their actual worth.


Still, the free agents enabled the 49ers to jump from the 18th ranked defense in the league to the 8th, and to jump from the league's 16th best defense against the run to the 2nd. Pro Bowl defensive lineman Dana Stubblefield led the team with 8.5 sacks. Rookie defensive tackle Bryant Young was also a big threat to opposing quarterbacks and rushers, recording 42 tackles, 6 sacks, and a fumble recovery. Behind them, Norton played very effectively at the middle linebacker position, leading the team with 77 tackles and recording an interception. Pro Bowl safety Merton Hanks led the team with 7 interceptions for 93 return yards, while Sanders had 6 interceptions for 303 return yards and 3 touchdowns, earning him the NFL Defensive Player of the Year Award. Pro Bowl safety Tim McDonald was also a big contributor, recording 2 interceptions for 79 yards and 1 touchdown. The Pro Bowl is the National Football Leagues all-star game. ...

The 49ers offense was led by quarterback Steve Young, who replaced future hall of famer Joe Montana as the starter in 1991 and 1992 due to injuries. But after Young led the league in passing in both 1991 and 1992 regular seasons, Montana left the team to join the Kansas City Chiefs, leaving Young as the undisputed starter in 1993. But even with his impressive passing statistics, Young was criticized as "not being able to win the big games" just as Montana had done in leading the 49ers to Super Bowl victories in XVI and XIX, XXIII, and XXIV.

Still, Young again led the league in passing during the 1994 regular season with a passer rating of 112.8, breaking Montana's record for the highest regular season rating in NFL history. Young recorded 324 out of 461 completions for 3,969 yards, 35 touchdowns, with just 10 interceptions.

With Young at the helm, the 49ers led the league in total points scored (505) and helped them earn a league best 13-3 regular season record. Pro Bowl running back Ricky Watters was the team's leading rusher with 877 yards and 6 touchdowns, while also recording 66 receptions for 719 yards and 5 touchdowns. Rookie fullback William Floyd was the team's second leading rusher with 305 yards and 6 touchdowns, while also having 19 receptions for 145 yards.

But despite the team's success in 1994, Young continued to be viewed as not being able to step out of Montana's shadow. That criticism intensified after Young's 49ers lost to Montana's Chiefs, 24-17 at Kansas City, in the second game of the regular season. A sign in the crowd proclaimed "This is Montana Country, Where the Young do not Survive". In the eyes of many 49ers fans, Young would never be able to gain respect until he won a Super Bowl.


San Diego Chargers

The Chargers were the cinderella team of the 1994 season, with very few expected them to even reach the playoffs, let alone the Super Bowl. In United States sports, a Cinderella refers to a team or player who advances much further in a tournament than expected, any of them are lower seeds during tournaments or playoffs. ...


San Diego suffered losing seasons in the 1980s until former Washington Redskins General Manager Bobby Beathard joined the team in 1990. Beathard decided to rebuild the Chargers using the same model that he used to build the Redskins into Super Bowl contenders during the 1980s – a powerful running game built around big lineman, a passing game that helped sustain extremely long drives, and a bending but steady defense. After former Georgia Tech head coach Bobby Ross was hired by the Chargers in 1992, the team advanced to the playoffs winning the AFC West with an 11-5 regular season record. But in 1993, they went 8-8 and missed the playoffs. For other uses, see Redskins (disambiguation). ...

The 49ers first defeated the Chicago Bears, 44-15, in the NFC Divisional Playoffs. Although Chicago scored first with a field goal, San Francisco scored 37 unanswered points to put the game out of reach by the end of the third quarter. Floyd scored 3 rushing touchdowns, while Young rushed for a touchdown and threw for another. The Bears managed to score 2 touchdowns in the final period, but the game was already out of reach, the 49ers had benched most of their starters by then, and Chicago still was unable to score on their two-point conversion attempts.

San Francisco then defeated their arch-nemesis the Dallas Cowboys, 38-28, in the NFC Championship Game. Expected to be a close game, the 49ers converted 3 Dallas turnovers into 21 points in the first quarter. On the third play of the game, cornerback Eric Davis returned an interception from Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman for a touchdown. Wide receiver Michael Irvin lost a fumble on Dallas' next drive, setting up Young's 29-yard touchdown pass to Watters. Then Cowboys returner Kevin Williams lost a fumble on the ensuing kickoff, and it was recovered by kicker Doug Brien at Dallas' 35-yard line. Several plays later, Floyd scored on a 1-yard touchdown run to give San Francisco a 21-0 lead less than 8 minutes into the game. With the score 24-14 in the closing minutes of the first half, Aikman threw 3 straight incompletions, and a short punt by the Cowboys set up Young's 28-yard touchdown completion to Rice with 8 seconds remaining in the first half. The Cowboys eventually cut their deficit to 38-28 with a touchdown run by Emmitt Smith and Aikman's 10-yard touchdown pass to Irvin in the final period, but they were unable to score again. Although the Cowboys outgained the 49ers in total offensive yards (451-294), Aikman broke an NFC Championship Game record with 380 yards passing, and Irvin also broke an NFC Championship Game record with 192 receiving yards, Dallas was ultimately unable to overcome their first quarter turnovers.

In the first half, San Diego was limited to only two John Carney field goals, while Miami quarterback Dan Marino threw for over 180 yards and 3 touchdowns. However, the Chargers dominated the Dolphins in the second half, limiting their offense to just 16 plays. In the third quarter, Chargers defensive lineman Reuben Davis tackled Dolphins running back Bernie Parmalee in the end zone for a safety. San Diego then took the ensuing free kick and marched 54 yards to score on Means' 24-yard touchdown run. Then with time running out, Humphries threw an 8-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Mark Seay, giving his team the lead 22-21. Miami responded with a drive to the Chargers' 32-yard line, but kicker Pete Stoyanovich's potential game winning 48-yard field goal attempt fell short of the goal posts on the game's final play.

Super Bowl pregame news

Entering Super Bowl XXIX, most sports writers and fans thought the Chargers had absolutely no chance of beating the 49ers. San Francisco was on streak, winning 12 of its 13 last games, including their playoff victories. Many people also thought that the NFC Championship Game between the 49ers and the Cowboys was the "real" Super Bowl because those two teams were commonly viewed as vastly superior to any AFC team. Furthermore, San Francisco crushed San Diego, 38-15, during the regular season. Therefore, the 49ers entered the game favored to win by more than 18 points.


Many also speculated that Super Bowl XXIX would be the least watched game in Super Bowl history. In addition to the predicted blowout, the Chargers did not have as much national appeal nor a relatively large core fan base as the Chiefs, the Dolphins, or the Steelers. (This prediction ultimately turned out to be false. Although Super Bowl XXIX was viewed by 125.2 million people and had a Nielsen Rating of 41.3, Super Bowl XXVI three years earlier was seen by 119.7 million viewers and recorded a 40.3 rating.)
