  2. I don't think this is as big of an upset as it's being portrayed……. 49ers were 10-2 in nonstrike games, Vikings 8-4. If Minnesota doesn't have a meltdown in their season finale and lose to the Redskins in overtime (27-24), then they're 9-3…… So this game was essentially two teams with 10-2 and 9-3 records. The Vikings routed the Saints the week before and significantly outplayed the 49ers here. Redskins defensive coordinator Richie Petitbon devised an excellent game plan for the NFC Championship game, basically shutting down the Minnesota offense, which had only gained about 180 yards until their final, fateful drive in that game.

  3. The Montana-Young debate carried on for most of 1988 after this game. Walsh liked Young more but he could never pull the trigger on a Montana trade or benching him for good. The two split time during the '88 season and it wasn't until the end of the year that Montana secured the job. Their Super Bowl run was a bit unexpected as they were 10-6 and inconsistent for much of the year. I have to think the Montana-Young issue is one of the reasons Walsh walked away after the season.

  4. As a lifelong SF fan this was the hardest defeat to take! Would have been epic to see SF vs. Washington in the NFC championship game….

  5. This was the best 49ers team ever on paper & were over whelming favorites in this game, That Two week lay off & home field advantage sure played out in this One

  6. In my opinion and in the 44 year history of my being a Viking fan, this right here is the greatest victory in the history of the Team. Granted, it wasn’t a championship but it was against a heavily favored team in that teams home stadium against possibly the greatest QB ever. In this game Montana was benched for the first time in his career, and Anthony Carter broke the NFL playoff receiving record for yards in a game in spectacular fashion while eclipsing the great Jerry Rice. We lost the next week to Washington but never before or since has this team been more impressive against a better team.

  7. Only reason they brought in Young was to slow down the Viking pass rush, Every play the vikes are killing that Niner line. Joe was a bad ass but not the fastest of feet. I remember the the tshirt i had bought that year Purple People Eaters part 2

  8. wow great quality video, I lived in tucson and I'm a huge Viking fan, I remember getting all of the teams autographs, I got to the Double Tree Hotel just as they were coming in from dinner. I was so happy and tought man maybe they have a chance against this great 49er team. Thank you NFL for this great memory, as a viking fan we don't have a championship. But still have some great teams and great runs. shocked the NFL that year. ( Dam Joe Theisman was so irritating) Vikings were on a roll Man Darren should have caught that pass against the Skins oh well SKOL

  9. Message to NFL: Please post 1987 Washington Redskins at Chicago Bears. Absolutely one of the greatest playoff gams ever, and the direct aftermath of this game, as the winner of the Redskins at Bears clash–an intense grudge match in its own right–suddenly knew that they would host the NFC championship game. Please upload that game!

  10. Holy balls, commentators back then even didn't take concussions very serious.  Lott has concussion right before half time and everyone is saying that he should be in after half time.  Joking about questions that Lott may be answering on the field after his bell was rung.

  11. I'll never forget how disappointed I was after this game. I just couldn't believe we lost. The Viking got a lucky punch in. Because the following 2 years after that, they were utterly destroyed by the 49ers in the playoffs.

  12. A forgotten near-Cinderella story those Vikings were in '87. Upset the two best teams in the NFC that year in N.O. and S.F., then came just a yard or two from sending the NFCCG against Washington into overtime. Carter wasn't dominant for very long, in the grand scheme of time, but this game shows him at his peak. And Wilson was among the most underrated QBs of the 80s.

  13. all that said vikes did have a chance woulda been tough ass game in Chicago too had bears beat skins.. bear fans were drooling after vikes won this game and losing to skins and not bein able to lay a division game at home one of worst losses in bear franchise history

  14. id say the bears were the favs after this game but McMahon took a shot and bears blew a 14-0 lead to redskins in divisional game. skins went on to squeak one out 21-17. bears really choked a dynasty away and played the eventual champs tougher than anybody although Minnesota did play good in nfc champ but lost 17-10 or by 7ptsn I'm thinkin and vikes had got inside skins 10yd line in last seconds of game to tie it… skins, vikes, bears were pretty equal coulda went anyway but I'm shocked bears and niners went out first
