#51 is here.

And now - the top 50 greatest moments in Candlestick History.

#50 November 27, 1989 Monday Night Against New York

Maybe the best rivalry in sports in the 1980s was Niners v. Giants; here, the two best teams in the league, both 9-2 with the Niners the defending champs, met on Monday Night Football (back when that was still Monday Night Football).

San Francisco went up 24-7 at the half; Joe Montana throwing 3 TD passes.  New York scored the next 17, tying the game at 24.  A Mike Cofer FG and Tom Rathman touchdown, both in the 4th quarter, provided the final margin of victory 34-24.

Joe was 27-33 for 292 yards and the 3 scores; the Niner defense had 7 sacks (4 by Pierce Holt) and 3 picks of Phil Simms; we'd go on to win the Super Bowl.

#49 is tomorrow
