In one of the most anticipated games of the regular season, the 49ers (4-1) traveled to Lambeau Field to face the Packers (5-1) on Monday Night Football. Under the guidance of Elvis Grbac, the 49ers went into halftime with a 17-6 lead. However the Packers fought back, and a 31-yard field goal by Chris Jacke with a little over three minutes left in the game, tied everything up at 20.
In overtime, Chris Jacke hit his fifth field goal of the game from 53 yards out, and the Packers defeated the 49ers, 23-20.
You can't say it was the prettiest of wins by the Packers. The only touchdown the Packers scored came off of a 59-yard touchdown reception by Don Beebe. Going up for a pass, Beebe fell to the turf as he caught the ball. Believing he was untouched, Beebe stood right up and ran the ball in for a touchdown.
Beebe clearly made the circus catch, but the replays showed that Beebe had been tapped by the 49ers Marquez Pope before getting off the turf. The play should have been brought back, but instant replay didn't exist in the rules back then, and the touchdown stood.
A notable statistic from the game, was Brett Favre's team record 61 passes. Don Beebe (pictured) caught 11 of those passes for 220 yards, for the most yards by a Packers receiver since 1957.
