Minnesota Vikings vs San Francisco 49ers 01/11/2020
The Minnesota Vikings face the San Francisco 49ers with no pressure this Saturday. After dropping their last two regular-season games, the Vikings pulled off a big upset over the fancied New Orleans Saints last time out. However, they may have their work cut out for them against the 49ers.
QB Kirk Cousins will need to step up once more, hoping to get a boost after winning his first playoff win. But the difference-maker could be the Vikings defense. They showed against the Saints that they can defend the ground, something the 49ers are good at. To pull off another win, they need to come up with no less than a similarly solid performance.

San Francisco 49ers
The San Francisco 49ers are hoping to continue their magical run this season. After a hot start in the regular season, injuries have slowed them down. However, key players like Dee Ford and Kwon Alexander possibly returning. This means that San Francisco will get a lift on the defensive end.
On the offensive side, a lot hinges on the play of QB Jimmy Garoppolo. Expected to anchor the run, Garoppolo who finished the regular season with 3,978 yards, 27 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions. One concern for him is that he needs to take care of the ball better, especially against an upset-conscious Vikings team.
