What was the final pass of John Elway's career like?

I know that it came in Super Bowl XXXIII in 1999, but what was it? I'm having a hard time remembering who caught it and how many yards it was for, if any.

    The last pass of Elway's career, intended for Rod Smith, was an incompletion. It came on 4th and three, from the Atlanta 30, with 1:40 left in Super Bowl 34. Denver won that game 34-19.

    Because of the incompletion, Denver turned the ball over on downs.

    Atlanta then turned the ball over seconds later -- Jamaal Anderson fumbled it away -- and Elway ran one more play, in which he ran for a one yard loss, before he was replaced by Bubby Brister.

    Sidenote: The last two passes of Elway's career were incompletions. Before failing to connect with Smith, Elway missed Willie Green with about seven and a half minutes left in the game. His last complete pass was to Ed McCaffrey, for 25 yards, with about ten minutes left in Super Bowl 34.

    Elway completed 18 of 29 passes, for 336 yards, in the final game of his career.
