September 19, 1965

On this day in The Bay, the 49ers started the 1965 season with a bang as they defeated the Chicago Bears 52-24 at Kezar Stadium.

Defensive tackle Charlie Krueger scored the only touchdown of his illustrious NFL career when he picked up a fumble and rambled six yards to the end zone.
