Gameday: Minnesota Vikings at San Francisco 49ers

Aug 25, 2013 at 12:00 PM--




Tonight, the 49ers will host the Minnesota Vikings at Candlestick Park in San Francisco. It will be the third preseason game for both teams and the 49ers' second and final preseason game at Candlestick Park.

For the Vikings, Adrian Peterson, the reigning NFL MVP, will make his first appearance of the 2013 preseason. The last time the two teams met was during week 3 of the 2012 season when Peterson was held to 86 rushing yards. However, the 49ers lost the game 24-13.

Last week, the Vikings lost to the Buffalo Bills by the score of 20-16.


This week, the 49ers signed veteran quarterback Seneca Wallace, who has previously spent time with the Seattle Seahawks, Cleveland Browns, and briefly, the New Orleans Saints. He will join Scott Tolzien, Colt McCoy and B.J. Daniels in the team's backup quarterback battle. It is highly unlikely that the team will retain more than two of these players to backup starting quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Yesterday, head coach Jim Harbaugh said that all five quarterbacks would get some play time in today's game.

Another Niner to watch would be wide receiver Jon Baldwin (No. 84), who the team acquired earlier in the week via a trade that sent A.J. Jenkins to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Last week, the 49ers beat the Kansas City Chiefs by the score of 15-13.

The game kicks off at 5:00 PM PT and, as usual, you can visit 49erswebzone.com for the latest news and updates during and after the game.

The game will be televised nationally on NBC.

It was a strange week for the San Francisco 49ers, who had to work through an unusual schedule that saw them arrive home from their Monday night game in Mexico City in the early morning hours on Tuesday, followed by Thanksgiving on Thursday. Still, they managed to work through it and prepare themselves to play against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, and in the end they came out on top with a 13-0 win. How did the 49ers work through that schedule? We'll look at that in this version of 49ers Notebook, along with some postgame thoughts from head coach Kyle Shanahan on the running back situation, a look at an impressive streak the 49ers snapped on Sunday, and much more.

The 49ers' Defense is Becoming Elite Again: 5 Observations about Saints-49ers

By JD Salazar
Nov 28

This 2022 iteration of the 49ers is endlessly fascinating to watch. One of the best teams in football one week, getting humiliated the next. Back to the future, forward with the past. But as turbulent and ramshackle as it's been, the 49ers are morphing into a team ready to dominate in the playoffs, just as head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch have always believed. Here are 5 observations from yesterday's win over the Saints. 1. The Scoreless Streak Extends to 4… In the second half of the past 4 games, the 49ers haven't allowed a point. None. Zip. Zilch. Nada. The Rams, Chargers, Cardinals, and now Saints have all failed to crack the scoreboard once after halftime. While only this last contest has been a pure shutout, that mark remains

This past week, defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh signed with the Philadelphia Eagles, making his debut on Sunday in a 17-16 win over the Indianapolis Colts. He told Pro Football Talk that he picked the Eagles because he sought another championship. Suh had another option, though, admitting that he could have signed with the San Francisco 49ers. "Suh told PFT by phone after Sunday's 17-16 win over the Colts in his debut with the Eagles that his decision came down to Philadelphia and San Francisco," wrote Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. "Suh said that he was attracted to the 49ers because of the presence of defensive line coach Kris
