#FarewellCandlestick: The 100 Greatest Moments in Candlestick Park History: #6

Tuesday, December 24, 2013

#7 is here.

#6 January 14, 1990 1989 NFC Championship

Maybe the greatest postseason run in sports history - the '89 Niners beat Minnesota 41-13 the week prior and then their oldest rival, who had beaten them in Candlestick during the season, the LA Rams here in the NFC Championship, 30-3.

Joe Montana went 26-30; the defense intercepted Jim Everett 3 times and infamously dropped him on a phantom sack; Roger Craig and Tom Rathman combined for 245 yards from scrimmage.

Two weeks later, the 49ers completed the postseason run, hanging 55 on the Broncos to win their 4th Super Bowl in 8 years.

The 5th greatest moment in Candlestick history is tomorrow.
