The San Francisco 49ers edge the Dallas Cowboys 28-27 in the NFC Championship Game at Candlestick Park to earn a trip to Super Bowl XVI. The game was decided by a leaping catch by Dwight Clark on a pass from Joe Montana in the back of the end zone with 51 seconds left. It was the first time the 49ers made the Super Bowl, beginning a dynasty.
