I'm going to wait till Tuesday till the 49ers play the Falcons (I have the Falcons winning 33-30)
#2 Sep 16, 2012
I don't need to wait. 49ers 34 Vikes 17. I checked the Vikes schedule and it doesn't look good. Detroit after San Fran? Damm!

not starting 2-0 (as they were supposed to) and with the horrible play calling and penalties along with the d-line rotation leading to near no sacks in 2 weeks this team is in serious trouble
Sad, because this team really has the talent to make a run for it too.
if you think the early schedule is bad look at the 2 half of it

I'm looking at the next two games. I think tonight's match up will be a great game. Two of the finest teams in the NFL this year and we'll see how good they are. These are also the two teams the Vikes will face next.

Adrian Peterson looked healthy during the first two weeks of the season, and the Minnesota Vikings will need him at his very best to have a shot against the San Francisco 49ers.
The Vikings are at home, but the Niners proved their ability to perform on the road in Week 1. They dropped the Green Bay Packers in Lambeau Field to start the season, and they followed that up with a 27-19 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday.
The Niners are looking to go 3-0 to start the season, with all three wins coming against NFC North opponents.
The Vikings have played two close games against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 1 and the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. They have come away with a split after Andrew Luck led his team to the 23-20 victory at Lucas Oil Stadium.
The Vikings' first two games saw them face teams that aren't likely to qualify for the postseason. The Niners are not only virtual playoff locks, they have to be considered one of the favorites in the NFC.

Whats at stake
Even though the Niners are on the road, this is a game they should win. The Vikings are a team with an unproven passing attack, and that plays into the hands of the Niners defense.
It is only the third game of the season, but the Niners would love to build a lead in the NFC West. Right now they are dead even with the surprising Arizona Cardinals.
With predictably tough games still left on the schedule against the New York Giants, New England Patriots, Chicago Bears and two against the Cardinals, the Niners don't want to drop a game like this.
The Vikings don't have much to lose, as most expect them to fall. They would love nothing more than to pull the upset over a top-notch team like the Niners.
What They're Saying
Mike Wobschall of Vikings.com wrote this in his Monday Morning Mail Bag series:
It is a hard loss to take, largely because of how close the Vikings came to winning the game despite a generally unproductive and undisciplined effort for much of the day.
As frustrating as fans might be with the Vikings performance through the first three quarters, they should also appreciate the teams resiliency and fight in the fourth quarter.
Unfortunately, thats not enough to win in the NFL. You have to be good in the first three quarters, too. Ultimately, a slow start for the offense in the first half, too many penalties and the inability to slow the Colts down through the air was the recipe for a close loss on the road.
Vikings fans should definitely be pleased with the team's effort through two weeks. This is not an extremely talented bunch from top to bottom. However, it is clear they haven't quit on Leslie Frazier and that Christian Ponder still has a chance to lead this team to better days.
Taylor Price of 49ers.com quoted Jim Harbaugh after the Niners' win over the Lions on Sunday. Harbaugh was asked if Randy Moss' role would change this season, as he had one catch for 14 yards against the Lions.
Nobody gets caught up in the guy terminology. He [Moss] knows football. He knows the team that plays best is going to win the game. Hes been about that.
Moss has always played well under strong leadership. He did it in Minnesota when Cris Carter and Jake Reed were there. He did it in New England with Bill Belichick and Tom Brady.
Harbaugh is likely to have the same effect with Moss in San Francisco.

Niners Player To Watch: Randy Moss
Moss has had a slow statistical start this year, but playing against one of his former teams could ignite something. Through two games, he has five catches for 51 yards and a touchdown.
It isn't that Moss has squandered opportunities. He's had only five targets through both games. Though Harbaugh said Moss is fine with his role, I'm sure he knows he needs to find a way to get the ball to the future Hall of Famer more.
The Vikings are also soft in the secondary, so this could be a big game for Moss.
Vikings Player To Watch: Percy Harvin
Harvin has been one of the game's best all-around players in the early going. His 18 receptions are tied for the second-most in the NFL, and he's also rushed seven times for 33 yards.
Against the Niners, Harvin will be the key to the Vikings offense. Even Peterson can't wreak havoc against the Niners front seven.
The Vikings will try to use Harvin in several ways. If he makes plays, the Vikings offense will have an element of unpredictability.

Key Matchup: Vikings Offensive Line vs. Niners Front Seven
Teams aren't going to run all over the Niners, but some success is necessary to create balance. If the Vikings' O-line can create some lanes for Peterson, it'll change the scope of the game.
However, that is far easier said than done.
Last season, the Niners held teams to a league-low 77.25 yards per game on the ground. Through two games this season, teams have rushed for only 63.5 yards per game. Harvin is a wild card out of the backfield, and he could create some issues with his explosiveness.
Peterson seems healthy, and he is still the game's best pure running back. Still, this will come down to which line gets the consistent push.
If John Sullivan and Brandon Fusco can win their share of battles in the trenches against Isaac Sopoaga and the Niners' nasty defense, the Vikings have a chance
#15 Sep 21, 2012
The Vikings have proven they will play hard and that they have resiliency, but the Niners are too solid. Minnesota's secondary will have issues covering Vernon Davis, Michael Crabtree, Mario Manningham and Moss.
Though Ponder has made some strides, he isn't ready to lead a team with limited weapons in the passing game by a defense of this caliber.
The Niners will win 24-10.
