September 10, 1984

On this day in The Bay, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Joe Montana completed 24-of-40 passes for 381 yards and two touchdowns in a 37-31 win over Washington, the defending NFC champions.

It was the first meeting between the clubs since Washington defeated the 49ers in the controversial 1983 NFC title game.

Montana guided the 49ers to their second Super Bowl title in 1984 and was named the MVP of Super Bowl XIX.
