7 Takeaways from the 49ers Preseason Game Versus the Minnesota Vikings


In Minnesota, Tyrion Davis-Price makes a strong impression The rookie running back needed some time to adjust throughout the first half of the game, but Davis-Price was in command after the break. He had the longest rush of the game up to that point (12 yards) on the 49ers' opening offensive series of the second half. 

He then backed it up with a 14-yard run as part of a 14-play, 79-yard touchdown drive. The third-round selection of the 49ers finished the evening with 10 carries for 41 yards.

Javon Kinlaw is healthy again and back to disrupting the offences of the opposition. Nearly all of the first half was played by No. 99, who faced double teams on the bulk of his snaps. Kinlaw is looking quicker, leaner, and more forceful after having knee surgery in the summer and easing into training camp routines.

Kinlaw proclaimed, "I feel like a whole new player. "Pain is not something I have to be concerned about. Apart from playing football, I don't have to worry about anything."

Rookie defensive players make early and frequent contributions at defensive end Drake Jackson and cornerback Samuel Womack III both improved upon their promising preseason debuts. Womack III came up with another takeaway after recording two picks in the first game. 

On offence and special teams, Malik Turner exhibits promiseTurner not only had one of the most stunning special teams plays, but also the longest reception of the evening (21 yards). On a punt return, which Womack III subsequently recovered, No. 17 knocked Imhir Smith-possession Marsette's of the ball out of his hands.

Turner added, "We only have one game video of the Vikings returner, and on the film, someone saw that he runs with the ball carelessly. "An opportunity to make a play presented itself; punched it out and recovered it."

Penalties and dropped passes stop the offence.Due to many penalties and missed passes in the first half, the 49ers offence struggled to get going. Ten penalties for 65 yards were accrued by San Francisco, four of which were false starts that occurred in the first half of the game on Saturday. 

Alfredo Gutierrez debuts in the NFL and wins the game ball.On Saturday, the offensive lineman from Mexico who joined the 49ers through the NFL International Player Pathway Program experienced his first NFL game. Late in the fourth quarter, No. 77 joined the game and played four plays at left tackle. The squad gave him the game ball to recognise his significant debut.
