November 2, 1958
On this day, future Pro Football Hall of Famer, San Francisco 49ers fullback Joe Perry, rushed for 174 yards on 13 carries in the 49ers 24-21 win over the Detroit Lions at Kezar Stadium.
Perry recorded a 73-yard run just before halftime to give San Francisco a 17-7 advantage. After suffering six turnovers, the 49ers fell behind Detroit 21-17 in the fourth quarter. Quarterback Y.A. Tittle saved the 49ers day by connecting on a 32-yard scoring pass to halfback Hugh McElhenny for the game-winning touchdown.
