The 49ers get a little national coverage as they face the Vikings on NBC tonight. There are obviously certainly story lines NBC will beat into the ground that we don't care about (or at least I don't). For the 49ers, the starters will get some extended playing time to work on timing and chemistry. Jimmy Raye seems to expect Nate Davis and Anthony Dixon to both get earlier snaps against better competition, so that is definitely something many of us are looking forward to.
Although the 49ers can't erase the sting from last year's heart-breaker in Minneapolis, it'd be nice to put a hurtin on the Vikings anyways.
