1985 1987

The 1986 San Francisco 49ers season was the team's 37th year with the National Football League. During the season opening victory at Tampa Bay, Joe Montana suffered a potentially career-ending back injury. After successful surgery, he was able to return, but only after missing eight games. Jeff Kemp and Mike Moroski filled in at quarterback. The Niners just managed to win the division by a half-game over the Rams, but suffered a brutal 49-3 loss in the first round of the playoffs to the Giants. Montana was knocked out of the game early on, suffering a concussion on a sack.
