This Day in Sports History - 1/24/1982

Led by rising star QB Joe Montana, who completed 14 of 22 passes for 157 yards and 1 touchdown while also rushing for 18 yards and 1 touchdown on the ground, the San Francisco 49ers win Super Bowl XVI, 26 - 21, over the Cincinnati Bengals at the Silverdome in Pontiac, Michigan. It's the only Super Bowl that will ever be played at the Silverdome, although Michigan will host Super Bowl XL at Ford Field in Detroit. Announced by Pat Summerall and John Madden, it's also the highest-rated Super Bowl telecast to date.
