Sunday October 18th 1981 (at Milwaukee)
(MILWAUKEE) - Johnny Davis plunged one yard for San Francisco's go-ahead touchdown late in the third quarter and Ray Wersching kicked two field goals, leading the visiting 49ers to a 13-3 victory over Green Bay. Joe Montana passed for 210 yards and DE Lawrence Pillers had three quarterback sacks for the 49ers, 5-2 with a four-game winning streak. The 49ers started their touchdown drive from the Packer 46 after a 12-yard punt return by Freddie Solomon. Montana then passed to Paul Hofer, who beat S Johnnie Gray, for a 22-yard gain to the Packer 9. Davis plunged over right guard to score on fourth down from the 1, breaking a 3-3 tie with 4:11 left in the third quarter. Wersching made it 13-3 with a 32-yard field goal with 4:31 to play. Lynn Dickey was forced to leave the game with a neck injury, and David Whitehurst stepped in but could not move the offense. The Milwaukee faithful booed their former fan favorite as they wanted to see top draft pick Rich Campbell.
