FootballOutsiders: Dewey Defeats DVOA! (Vikings Didn't really outplay 49ers)

Acording to FootballOutsiders.com, the 49ers had a better VOA score than the Vikings on Friday, yet lost...the third "Dewey Defeats DVOA" this year. The Vikings won because they were able to make timely dump-off passes to Rudolph and (in particular) Harvin at the right time to convert third downs. Its a Flukish performance that is unlikely to be repeated.

Its probable that if Ponder doesn't complete that TD pass of his back foot while scrambling on the opening drive, the 49ers run the ball more because they're not down by 7 points, and probably win.
