The San Francisco Chronicle reminds us the 49ers will attempt to win their first road playoff game in 24 years on Sunday in the Georgia Dome. The team's last postseason win outside of Candlestick Park dates all the way back to Jan. 1989, when Joe Montana guided San Francisco to a 28-3 victory over the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field.
The 49ers haven't been involved in a road playoff game since dropping a divisional-round tilt to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Jan. 2003. That was the latest in five straight road playoff losses for the franchise.
This year's 49ers are 5-3 on the road, and quarterback Colin Kaepernick was just 2 years old when Montana knocked off the Bears in the late '80s. We'd imagine this historical nugget means little to the team.
