Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The 1957 San Francisco 49ers season was the team's eighth season in the NFL, and were coming off a 5-6-1 record in 1956, however, they ended the season with a 5 game unbeaten streak. San Francisco would continue their late season success from the previous year, and would win 5 of their first 6 games and sit in 1st place in the Western Conference. The Niners would then lose 3 in a row on the road to drop to a 5-4-0 record, however, a 3 game winning streak to close out the season would see San Francisco finish with an 8-4-0 record, their best season since 1953. The 49ers finished tied with the Detroit Lions at the top of the Western Conference, which would set up a tie-breaking playoff game at Kezar Stadium, with the winner of the game to face the Cleveland Browns for the NFL Championship. The Lions would win a very close game by a 31-27 score and end the 49ers season and their quest for their first title. According to the Brainy History site, 49ers co-owner Anthony J Morabito died while watching one of these games.show more
