#53 is here.

#52 December 26, 1971 The First Playoff Game

The first playoff game ever played at Candlestick ended George Allen's first season as Redskins coach.  John Brodie hit Gene Washington with a 78 yard touchdown pass to tie the game in the third quarter, and a Redskin botched punt attempt recovered by Bob Hoskins in the end zone in the 4th iced it away.  The Niners beat Washington 24-20.

#51- the end of the first half of the 100 greatest moments in Candlestick Park history - is tomorrow.
