Super Bowl XVI

The San Francisco 49ers won their first Super Bowl on January 24, 1982 at the Silverdome in Pontiac, Michigan. The game was broadcast by Pat Summerall and John Madden to the highest ratings in Super Bowl history.

Joe Montana (14-22 for 157 yards) was named the game's MVP though many believed the honor should have belonged to CB Eric Wright, who intercepted one pass and who forced Cris Collinsworth to fumble inside the red zone.
