Colin Kapernick got the 49ers off to a fast start with a touchdown pass to Quinton Patton that gave San Francisco a 10-0 lead after the first quarter of the game. Patton was so excited about the touchdown that he busted out this touchdown dance:
The 49ers extended their lead when Lavelle Hawkins took a kickoff back the house in the second quarter. Hawkins was almost as excited about his touchdown as Patton was about his:
The day wasn't all bad for the Vikings, though. Christian Ponder was somewhat efficient, throwing for over 100 yards and a pair of touchdowns. The 49ers' depth showed in the end, and the Vikings got left behind as the 49ers outscored them 14-7 in the second half.
49ers running back LaMichael James left Sunday's game with an elbow injury, which wasn't considered a major injury. Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle Kevin Williams also left the game with a knee injury.
