#69 is here.

#68 December 19, 1971 NFC West Champs

'71 was Candlestick's first year for the Niners; this was the last game of the regular season - a win over the Lions and the Niners would make playoff appearances in consecutive years for the first time in franchise history.

John Brodie threw for 3 TD passes and, down in the 4th qtr, ran for the game winning TD.  San Francisco won 31-27 and were NFC Champs in their inaugural Candlestick season.

#67 is tomorrow.
