Super Bowl XXIII was an American football game between the American Football Conference champion Cincinnati Bengals and the National Football Conference champion San Francisco 49ers to decide the National Football League champion for the 1988 season. The 49ers defeated the Bengals 20 -- 16; the game was played on January 1989 at Joe Robbie Stadium in Miami. This was the first Super Bowl hosted in the Miami area in 10 years, the first in Miami not held at the Orange Bowl; this was the second meeting between these two teams in the Super Bowl. The game was the third rematch between Super Bowl teams after Super Bowl XIII and Super Bowl XVII; this was the Bengals' second Super Bowl appearance after finishing the regular season with a 12–4 record. The 49ers were making their third Super Bowl appearance after posting a 10–6 regular season record; the game is best remembered for the 49ers' fourth-quarter game-winning drive. Down 16–13, San Francisco got the ball on their own 8-yard line with 3:10 on the clock and marched 92 yards down the field in under three minutes.
They scored the winning touchdown on a Joe Montana pass to John Taylor with just 34 seconds left in the game. The game was tight throughout; the teams combined for five field goals, battled to a 3–3 score by the end of the second quarter, the first halftime tie in Super Bowl history. Cincinnati's only touchdown, a 93-yard kickoff return by Stanford Jennings in the third quarter, was answered by a four-play, 85-yard drive that ended with San Francisco wide receiver Jerry Rice's 14-yard touchdown reception. Rice, named the Super Bowl MVP, caught 11 passes for a Super Bowl record 215 yards and a touchdown, while rushing once for five yards. NFL owners voted to award Super Bowl XXIII to Miami, Florida on March 14, 1985 during their March 10–15, 1985 meetings held in Phoenix; this was the sixth time that Miami hosted the game, the first at Joe Robbie Stadium. The selection was to be voted on during the May 23–25, 1984 meetings. However, after balloting for XXI took more than two hours, voting for XXIII was rescheduled.
Twelve cities were part of the bidding process, scheduled to award two Super Bowls. The bidding cities included: Anaheim, Houston, Miami, New Orleans, San Francisco, Seattle and Tempe. Miami entered as the favorite; this was the last Super Bowl played on the second to last Sunday in January. From 1990 to 2001, the game was played on the last Sunday of January and since 2002, on the first Sunday in February; this was the last east coast Super Bowl that began under daylight. For the 49ers, it was their first Super Bowl appearance since they defeated the Miami Dolphins in Super Bowl XIX, they had made the playoffs in the three seasons between Super Bowl XIX and Super Bowl XXIII, but were eliminated each time in the first round because of the poor performances by their offensive stars in those games. The previous season's 36–24 playoff loss to the Minnesota Vikings had been a low point for Montana, who had played so poorly that head coach Bill Walsh had benched him early in the third quarter. In the 1988 season, San Francisco won the NFC West with a 10–6 regular season record and earned the #2 playoff seed, but it was a long uphill battle.
Two other teams in their division, the Los Angeles Rams and New Orleans Saints had recorded 10-6 records, meaning not only did they earn a first round bye with the narrowest possible margin, but a one more loss would have caused them to miss the playoffs altogether. The team had Steve Young each starting during the season. Young had started three games during the year, in which the 49ers went 2-1, including a crucial 24-21 week 9 win over the Vikings in which Young scored the game winning touchdown on a dynamic 49-yard run with time running out in the 4th quarter, but after a 6–5 start, Montana led the 49ers to win four of their final five regular season games. Montana finished the regular season with 238 completions for 2,981 yards and 18 touchdowns, added 132 rushing yards, his favorite target was Rice, who recorded 64 receptions for 9 touchdowns. Craig was a key contributor, leading the team in receptions while finishing the season with a total of 2,036 combined rushing and receiving yards and 10 touchdowns, earning him the NFL Offensive Player of the Year Award.
Fullback Tom Rathman made a big impact, rushing for 427 yards and catching 42 passes for 387 yards. San Francisco had a major special teams threat in second-year receiver John Taylor, who led the NFL in punt return yards, yards per return, touchdowns, he gained 228 yards on kickoff returns and 325 receiving yards on just 14 receptions. The 49ers' defense was led by defensive backs Ronnie Lott, Eric Wright, Jeff Fuller, Tim McKyer, who recorded a combined total of 18 interceptions. McKyer led the team with 7, while Lott recorded 5, along with 3 forced fumbles and 4 fumble recoveries. Linebacker Charles Haley was a big contributor with 11.5 sacks and 2 fumble recoveries. The 49ers had a solid defensive line, featuring Michael Carter, Danny Stubbs, Larry Roberts, Pierce Holt. The

The WNBA All-Rookie Team is an annual Women's National Basketball Association honor given since the 2005 WNBA season to the top rookies during the regular season. Voting is conducted by the WNBA head coaches, who are not allowed to vote for players on their own team; each coach selects five players. A player is given a point for every vote; the top vote getters comprise the team, regardless of the positions. The All-Rookie Team is composed of a five-woman lineup, but in the case of a tie at the fifth position the roster is expanded. Candace Parker of the Los Angeles Sparks was named to the All-Rookie Team and won the WNBA Most Valuable Player Award in the same season; this feat had never before been accomplished. In the NBA, only Wes Unseld has held this distinction. "All-Rookie Teams". WNBA.com. WNBA. Retrieved 2009-01-18
