49ers Vs Vikings : 49ers Hit the Vikings Twice in a 17-7 victory: 49ers’ second preseason game against the Vikings. Despite most of the starters sitting, there were still many highlights. Purdy is competitive, will play early and give his wide receivers a chance to run the game down the field.
49ers vs Vikings Highlights
Both interceptions occurred when the ball started at San Francisco’s 29-yard line
The 49ers’ second preseason game against the Vikings played out as a contest that was missing 50 of his regulars. Despite most of the starters sitting, there were still many highlights.
Nate Sudfeld finds JaMychal Hasty on a nifty “Texas” route out of the backfield for the 49ers’ first touchdown:
Purdy is funny. He’s the perfect preseason quarterback. Purdy is competitive, will play early and give his wide receivers a chance to run the game down the field. Shanahan will have a hard time cutting Purdy.
If Malik Turner’s roster spot was ever in doubt, this forced fumble sealed his fate:
Coaches value a forced fumble on special teams as much as a touchdown.
How do you tell the difference between Jordan Mason running all over the backfield and Trey Sermon having to dodge tacklers in the backfield? No matter who Ty Davis-Price goes up against, he will defect. If the rookie earns Shanahan’s trust, he will play games for the 49ers this season.
Javon Kinlaw welcomes Vikings second-round pick Ed Ingram to the NFL:
Even if it was against backups, it’s a great sign that Kinlaw is active. He will be among the leaders on defense in immediate numbers. After season-ending surgery, Kinlaw will need to get back in shape. There is no way to simulate the snaps he played tonight in practice.
The difference in this one was two turnovers. George Odum had an interception on the Vikings’ first drive and Tayler Hawkins had an interception on their final possession. Both happened at the 29-yard line.
The 49ers won 17-7.
