49ers Dominate as Cohesive Unit, Best Vikings 34-14


The San Francisco 49ers haven’t played a perfect game yet, but they sure looked good on Sunday night.

San Francisco obliterated the Minnesota Vikings 34-14, taking a 10-0 lead with Colin Kaepernick and never looking back. Kaepernick hooked up with Quinton Patton for a touchdown in the first quarter, and the offense kept rolling.

Jewel Hampton and Anthony Dixon ran for touchdowns, and Lavelle Hawkins returned a kickoff 105 yards for a touchdown. The 49ers piled up a solid 356 yards of offense.

Backup quarterback Colt McCoy went out to try to secure the 49ers’ backup quarterback job, and he did a great job. He threw an interception, but he completed 11 of 15 passes for 109 yards. Seneca Wallace also played, going 2-for-2 for 27 yards.

The defense shined as well, holding the Vikings to just 14 points. Travis Johnson played well, recording four tackles and a sack. The defense did a great job as a cohesive unit, surrendering just 128 passing yards and 85 rushing yards.

The 49ers look ready for Week 1, as they are a great team. They certainly showed it tonight, playing like a team with absolutely no concerns. They will take on the San Diego Charges on Thursday night in their final tuneup before the regular season.
