Garoppolo finally takes loss, 49ers fall to Vikings

Garoppolo finally takes loss, 49ers fall to Vikings”

In what was a game largely built on the quarterback battle between Kirk Cousins in his first official start with the Viking against Garoppolo, it was Minnesota's defense that made all the difference in the contest. "He's a very good player, and he has had a lot of success".

"We had played too hard at that point to just slide early and give up on that", Cousins said.

"That's NFL football. I think that if you're not really accurate and you don't have that confidence to let it rip, you're going to be holding the ball and getting sacked, you're going to be spraying it everywhere", Cousins said. Following the game, Viking star defensive end Danielle Hunter stated that it was evident to him as the game wore on that Garoppolo was becoming fearful of their defensive front under pressure, according to Daniel Brown of The Mercury News.

"Middle linebacker is one of the toughest positions to come in as a rookie and play and be effective", said cornerback Richard Sherman, who made his 49ers debut. Wide open up the seam, Kittle had what would've been a 30-yard completion fall off his fingers at midfield. "Thought it was a little closer to me". Fred Zamberletti, the team's original athletic trainer who died last week at age 86, was honored with a pregame moment of silence. The Vikings also staged a 20th anniversary tribute to the 1998 squad that went 15-1 and reached the NFC championship game.

"Sometimes we didn't get to the second level", head coach Mike Zimmer said.

Oh yeah, and pray for the Niners' Marquise Goodwin (quad), Mike Person (foot) and Joshua Garnett (foot). With three backups on the OL already inactive, rookie Mike McGlinchey moved from RT to RG for the first time in his life while Garry Gilliam took over at RT ...

Vikings: CB Trae Waynes hurt his right knee while ripping a deep pass away from Pettis in the end zone in the second quarter.

While the interior will be in for a challenge against the Packers, the Vikings may catch a break against the edge rushers as Green Bay struggled to create pressure from outside against the Bears in Week 1.
