49ers vs Vikings Football Preview
The Vikings are coming out of a very successful season and might be starting this new season in the same high note Just as they did. 49ers, on the other hand, has quite a rough season but they didn’t end their year in a bad way. Their fans therefore still have a lot of hopes that they won’t disappoint them in the course of the season. They are hopeful to find success in 2018.
For the San Francisco 49ers, the end of the year was a 6-10 in the NFC West. It was however not bad throughout. At least they got one of the quarterbacks in the NFL. This club still has good things to catch have moved with Garoppolo to a 5-0 win. They have players who can bring an expected outcome in the season including; Jimmy Garoppolo, Carlos Hyde, and Marquise Goodwin.
Minnesota Vikings, on the other hand, are not badly off. They had a record of 13-3 last season in NFC North. It was on the NFC championships where they lost to the Eagles, 7-38, otherwise, they are well capable.
They have a lot of hope of building o the last season’s success. All they need to do is battle the packers to take the lead in the NFC North. Outstanding players like Case Keenum, Latavius Murray, and Adam Thiele are to be watched. They can bring any unexpected results in the game.
A lot needs to be done in the San Francisco’s 49ers. This is an organization that has had 6 different coaches since the 2010 season. They include Mike Singletary, Jim Tomsula, Jim Harbaugh, Jim Tomsula for another time, Chip Kelly and finally Kyle Shanahan. This brings questions on what is happening at the top.
As the last season ended, Kaepernick and Braine Gabert made a start off with 1-2 of the chart. They are nowhere to be seen this year with Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley as we as Rookie C.J. being on the starter. Carlos Hyde is back again to the team but as a starter. Having the main man remaining on the team was wise but the worse thing is that his entire backup has been turned over.
The offensive line is one of the few offensive positions that brings along great stability. This has seen five starters come back from last year to the team. To start on the right side is Brandon Fusco a former Vikings Guard.
49ers will have a great job to do on the defense system. They have to make a conversion of the defense from a 3-4 scheme which they operate on to a 4-3 installed through the former assistant coach of Seattle Robert Saleh. A transformation of 4-3 to 3-4 brings out the quality of the players since good fit players in one system don’t have to be a good fit in another. An example is Jared Allen. He was good in when Chicago switched to a 3-4. Despite the great and many changes through the offense, a change in the defensive side is a great transition on the team.
The 49ersare currently in a complete rebuilding mode and the fans are expecting the best. They have so many players learning to play on both sides of the ball bringing out a great strength.
The Vikings offense has a few issues. It has however managed to make it up for the great pass catchers and a better quarterback. The 49ers will, therefore, need a considerably flawless game plan to stop the Vikings Defense.
San Francisco 49ers vs Minnesota Vikings Prediction
If the San Francisco 49ers have to return to the playoffs after almost a year’s absence, they have quite a tough road ahead. With Jimmy Garoppolo as their starting quarterback, they closed 2017 on a five-game winning streak.
Vikings were one of the best teams in the NFL last season. Their receivers are of high quality with a good quarterback in the Kirk Cousins. Their rushing attack is one of their greatest strengths not forgetting that Alvin Cook will be well and healthy by that season. This is a team that will easily expose all the weak points of the 49ers.
Prediction: Vikings 24 and 49ers 17.
To sum it up
It’s very likely for a loss of 0-1 on of the 49ers to Vikings. With the set changes and preparations by the 49ers however it is possible to change the outcome. It is however quite a bang that 49ers will have to travel to Minnesota for the match. It is a good test of the 49ers and gets their season to a stellar start albeit they are expected to lose.
