Packers QB Brett Favre has Monster Day in San Francisco
Jan. 6, 1995 – Mike Holmgren’s return to the San Francisco area is a huge success as his Packers stun the 49ers 27-17 in a divisional playoff game at 3Com Park. Linebacker Wayne Simmons sets the tone early when he jars the ball loose from fullback Adam Walker on a screen pass. Cornerback Craig Newsome returns the turnover for a score as Green Bay posts 21 unanswered points before permitting San Francisco a field goal just before halftime. Brett Favre compiles a 132.9 passer rating and the Packers hold 49ers quarterback Steve Young to a paltry rating of just 51.3.
