The Catch - Dwight Clark leads the 49ers to a victory against the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC Championship Game

With only 51 seconds left on the clock, Dwight Clark’s miraculous game-winning catch on a pass from Joe Montana in the corner of the endzone gave the SF 49ers a 28-27 victory over the Dallas Cowboys in the 1981 NFC Championship Game. The reception that would forever be known as “The Catch” was Clark’s 2nd touchdown of the game and his 8th reception. The 49ers would go on to win their first of five Super Bowls, while the loss was the 2nd of three consecutive NFC Championship Game defeats for America’s Team, the Dallas Cowboys.
