It was an ugly Week 1 game for the San Francisco 49ers as they traveled to the NFC North to take on a stout Minnesota Vikings squad. The game was less close than the 24-16 score indicates, as the 49ers were damaged by sloppy play on the offense.
Not to mention trying to stop the passing attack done by Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins.
There’s plenty of good to take away from this game, as the defense kept the game close for the offense. With big plays from defensive tackle DeForest Buckner and rookie linebacker Fred Warner, the Niners defense looks bright for the rest of the season. It’s good to see, especially before fellow linebacker Reuben Foster comes back from a two-game suspension to start the season.
And as much as the offense failed to produce, they still showed signs of life and production.
However, there’s still much to look into. Especially for fans upset about the result. So here are the three burning questions fans have after the loss in Minnesota.
