We've got a fourth quarter thread for you as the San Francisco 49ers are running out of time in what has become a very tough battle. The Minnesota Vikings lead 24-13 early in the fourth quarter as Minnesota benefited from some dubious officiating. Of course, given how the replacement refs have performed thus far, most of their calls are dubious. But good news: The NFL doesn't give a crap about what we think about officiating.
14 minutes remain in the fourth quarter, so the 49ers are still in this thing. Of course, if the defense can't figure out how to stop the swing pass, none of this will really matter. I think it is safe to say we have found a weakness in the 49ers defense. The Jets will be all over this film before next week's matchup in the Meadowlands. Let's hope Vic Fangio makes some adjustments before then.
