Put a video game on the hardest difficulty, and many would be hard-pressed to repeat this box score.
Unfazed by the Super Bowl environment, Steve Young put together a stellar performance in Super Bowl XXIX. The left-hander shredded the San Diego Chargers for 325 yards and six touchdowns with his arm, adding 49 yards on five carries in a 49-26 victory in January 1995.
“Is this great or what?” he said after the win. “I mean, I haven’t thrown six touchdown passes in a game in my life. Then I throw six in the Super Bowl! Unbelievable.”
Young’s six passing scores remain the Super Bowl record, and his rushing yards are fourth behind Steve McNair (64, XXXIV), Colin Kaepernick (62, XLVII) and Montana (59, XIX).
