November 21, 1988

On this day, San Francisco 49ers kick returner John Taylor fielded punter Greg Coleman's kick at the five-yard line, then raced 95 yards to score against Washington.

It was the longest punt return in 49ers history and helped San Francisco earn a 37-21 victory. Taylor's 556 punt return yards in 1988 led the NFL. He capped the season in glorious fashion by catching the game-winning touchdown pass at Super Bowl XXIII with 34 seconds remaining.
