A-10 THE DAILY SUN Dec. 13, 1965 SAN BERNARDINO, CALIFORNIA CHICAGO (AP) Fabulous Gale Sayers scored six touchdowns yesterday, pushing his season total to 21 to set a National Football League season record, and the Chicago Bears routed the San Francisco 49ers 61-20. Savers' touchdown spree established a Bear club scoring record for one game and also matched the single game NFL mark. His total of 21 bettered the league record of 20 registered last season by Baltimore's Lenny Moore and duplicated this season by Cleveland's Jimmy Brown. The triumph, avenging an opening 52-24 defeat at San Francisco, kept alive the Bears' mathematical chance of sharing the Western Conference title. They now have a 9-4 mark. The remarkable rookie from Kansas tallied this way on a rain-slick field as 46,278 fans gave him standing ovations: First quarter Rudy Bukich hit Sayers on a screen pass and hp streaked 80 yards. Second quarter After Jon Arnett ran back a punt 77 yards to the 49ers 21. Savers bolted across on the first play. Buk-ich's 51-yard pass to Jimmy Jones set up Sayers' scoring smash from the seven on a pitch-out. Third quarter Sayers cut through tackle and raced 50 yards. Later, after Ron Bull passed 54 yards to Jones, Sayers dived over from the one. Fourth quarter Sayers tore through the 49crs for an 85-yard runback of a punt. Other Bear touchdowns came on Bukich passes of 29 yards to Mike Ditka and eight to Jones and a two-yard run by Arnett. The 49ers scored 13 points in the second quarter as John Brodie hit Dave Parks and John David Crow with nine and 15-yard TD shots. After Crow's tally, Tommy Davis' try for point was wide. It was his first miss in 235 consecutive attempts in seven seasons. The 49er's only other touchdown came in the fourth on a two-yard smash by Dave Ko-pay. Sayers' six touchdowns tied the NFL record set by Ernie Nevers of the Chicago Cardinals Nov. 28, 1929, and tied by Dub Jones of Cleveland, Nov. 25, 1951, both against the Bears. His 126 points for the season breaks the Bear record of 109 set by Johnny Lujack in 1950. The Baars' 61 points were a club record for regular season play. Their previous high was 58-27 over Baltimore in 1956. The Bears all-time high of 73 points was recorded against Washington in the NFL championship playoff of 1940. The Bears' nine touchdowns also was a regular season high. Sayers accounted for 326 yards 113 rushing, 89 on passes and 134 on punt returns.

And that's according to the San Francisco 49ers, who were still in a state of shock following1 their 61-20 defeat by Sayers and the Chicago Bears yesterday. Sayers scored six touchdowns to tie a National Football League game record. He ac Although the season isn't over, he already holds every scoring record in the brilliant history of the Bears for a season.
