October 26, 1986

On this day, 49ers defensive back Tory Nixon returned the first interception of his career 88 yards for a touchdown against the Green Bay Packers.

Green Bay was marching for a potential game-tying score when Nixon picked off a Randy Wright pass to secure the 31-17 win. It was the second-longest interception return in team history at the time. Nixon spent four seasons with San Francisco from 1985-1988.
