With home field in the playoffs on the line, the San Francisco 49ers pummel the Chicago Bears 41-0 in a Monday Night showdown at Candlestick Park. The Niners’ win was done with a backup quarterback, as Steve Young had four touchdown passes after Joe Montana exited with a hamstring injury. Three of the touchdown receptions are caught by Jerry Rice, who ties the single-season record with 18 TD receptions on the way to 22 for the season.
