On his first snap after the pick-six by Hughes, Garoppolo found fullback Kyle Juszczyk wide open along the right sideline for a 56-yard gain that put the 49ers in range for the second of Robbie Gould's three field goals.
"It didn't end the way we wanted", Kittle said, "but I feel like we definitely had some momentum going and if we can do that we'll be a pretty good offense". "They stood up to everything we thought they would, but with all the things that went bad we still had a shot at the end there". In his first game since signing a lucrative multi-year deal this offseason, Garoppolo went 15-of-33 for 261 yards and a touchdown, while posting a QB rating of 45.1.
"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.
Harrison Smith's interception, the third by the Vikings against Garoppolo in the second half, sealed the game with 1:35 remaining.
Highlighted by tight end George Kittle's five catches for 90 yards, there was enough production by the 49ers to take some positives into their home opener against Detroit next week.
Cousins connected with Stefon Diggs in the second quarter and Kyle Rudolph in the third quarter for scores, and the defense finished the job with three sacks and three second-half interceptions of Garoppolo. The low point came early in the third quarter when Garoppolo threw to his right and the pass was intercepted by Mike Hughes, who returned it all the way for a Minnesota touchdown and a 17-3 lead.
"We were rolling there toward the end", Kittle said. Robert Smith, one of 28 former players who were introduced at halftime, received the loudest ovation. "You see that he's starting to get scared". His replacement Joshua Garnett was hurt in the third quarter, both with left foot injuries.
49ers: Goodwin hurt his right quadriceps in the first quarter and didn't return. With three backups on the OL already on the inactive list, rookie Mike McGlinchey had to move from RT to RG with Garry Gilliam taking his place. He didn't return. With Mackensie Alexander (ankle) inactive and Terence Newman now retired, the Vikings were down to four CBs so SS Jayron Kearse played slot coverage in the nickel package with Hughes on the outside for Waynes. They haven't faced the Packers on the road in September since the 2008 season opener.
