The Vikings moved the ball a little too easily on their first couple of plays, but Charvarius Ward made like his teammate and Deebo’d Minnesota rookie wideout Jordan Addison for an impressive interception.
The 49ers moved the ball inside Minnesota’s 10-yard line within a matter of moments, but for the second time in three weeks, Christian McCaffrey fumbled the ball as he was about to score. That bailed the Vikings out, and we remained scoreless after two possessions.
The Vikings were backed up in their own territory, but their offense had zero issues moving the ball, and before you knew it, had found their way inside of the red zone. On 3rd & 2, Cousins founds rookie Jordan Addison for a gain of 20 yards to give the Vikings an early 7-0 lead.
On the ensuing drive, Brock Purdy found Brandon Aiyuk for a gain of 10, Jauan Jennings for a gain of 18, and had the longest rush of his short career for 18 yards to put the 49ers into Vikings territory.
