Saints and 49ers 1969 NFL Game of the Week

The Saints-49ers 1969 regular season game was highlighted as the NFL Game of the Week November 23 of that year. The Saints won the game 43-38, falling 21-0 early but rallying in the end to win. Danny Abramowicz ended up with 5 catches for 113 yards and 2 touchdowns and Tom Dempsey had 2 field goals. Andy Livingston (who would make the Pro-Bowl that year) had 83 yards on the ground while passing for 1 TD and running for another. The Saints ended year with a 5-9 record which was actually the best yet for a 3-year expansion team.

  1. Man, I LOVED THAT!!!
    Thanks SO MUCH for adding that. It was so fun to watch our Saints playing AND WINNING against the whiners,before I was even born
    So many names I had never heard of before.

    The announcer threw me off a bit by calling a reverse a “flea-flicker.”
    Man how times have changed.

    I was at that game. I was 10 yrs old. It was a cold overcast day. I remember it being a great game, we were yelling and screaming so much I think I lost my voice.
