“Yeah, I think it’s when you can dictate it,” head coach Kyle Shanahan said on Friday. “And that’s the best way to dictate a game, is to run the ball. And to do it, it’s not just the running back, it’s not just the O-line, and it’s not just the offense. I feel like when you can dominate a game through the run game, yeah, you’ve got to have all of that with the offense, but it’s the whole team.”

5 Bold Predictions: Minnesota Vikings vs. San Francisco 49ers – Week 12

San Francisco will run for over 150 yards

A big reason why the Vikings need to get off to a fast start is because of the 49ers’ run-oriented attack. San Francisco ranks eighth in the NFL with 123.2 rushing yards per game but has averaged 170.5 yards on the ground over their past two games.

While Elijah Mitchell is unlikely to play due to a finger injury, the combination of Jeffrey Wilson and Trey Sermon have made for an effective committee. San Francisco has even thrown Deebo Samuel into the backfield, which adds another wrinkle for the Vikings to stop.
