San Francisco 49ers Defeat Vikings in Regular Season Opener

The San Francisco 49ers opened their regular season in style this year with a 20-3 Monday Night Football victory over the Minnesota Vikings at Levi’s Stadium. After a scoreless first quarter and a series of fruitless punts from both sides, San Francisco got possession with less than six minutes left in the second quarter and drove 93 yards to earn the first touchdown of the game, courtesy of running back Carlos Hyde. Hyde, who far outshone his better known Vikings counterpart, Adrian Peterson, finished the night with 168 yards rushing on 26 carries and two touchdowns. Peterson, on the other hand, finished with 31 yards on 10 carries. “To outdo a guy who's been leading the NFL in rushing -- that's tremendous,” noted Hyde in a press conference following the game. “To outdo a guy like that, Adrian Peterson, a great running back…Can’t take anything away from him. I used to watch his highlights. To be able to outrush him, that's great.” Make sure you are there in person to see the 49ers play their next exciting home game.

In a solid performance, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick completed 17 of 26 passes for 165 yards, while the defense racked up five sacks and held Minnesota to 248 total yards. As far as injuries, 49ers RB Reggie Bush was carted off the field with a calf strain in the first quarter after completing just two carries for eight yards. Besides giving the 49ers a great start to the 2015 football season, the victory over the Vikings was also a perfect beginning for Jim Tomsula, who was recently confirmed as San Francisco’s new head coach after an interim period. “I just want us to be who we are,” said Tomsula in a press conference on Tuesday. “Our locker room is, what I believe, is a tough-minded – physically tough and mentally tough – group of guys. Let’s play the game. Football’s a test of wills. I believe those are the kind of guys we have.” The San Francisco 49ers will have another chance to prove their physical and mental mettle when they take on the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field on September 20. On September 27, the 49ers will visit the Arizona Cardinals at University of Phoenix Stadium, before returning home to face the Green Bay Packers at Levi’s Stadium on October 4.
