"I think it was very evident that there were a lot of opportunities we missed out there", Shanahan said.

Garoppolo won twice for New England in 2016 during Tom Brady's suspension. Minnesota's U.S. Bank Stadium is one of the loudest places in the league for opponents to play. The 49ers converted five. "Just a tough way to end it".

Garoppolo was consistently under pressure from the vaunted Vikings defense, who sacked him three times.

The Vikings actually kept that late drive alive by a 49ers neutral zone infraction penalty on fourth-and-1, before punting four plays later.

Comment les Etats-Unis se préparent à affronter l'ouragan Florence
L'ouragan est "de petite taille", et "sa trajectoire et son intensité demeurent très incertaines", ont souligné les préfectures. Pour l'heure, quatre États ont déclaré l'état d'urgence , soit les deux Carolines, la Virginie et le Maryland.


-On the next play, Kendrick Bourne ran the wrong route, and Vikings cornerback Mike Hughes made the easy interception of a Garoppolo's pass and returned it for a touchdown. Garoppolo was particularly agitated on the sideline. And the Lions could be without their best defensive player, pass-rusher Ziggy Ansah, who exited the game with a shoulder injury. His replacement Joshua Garnett was hurt in the third quarter, both with left foot injuries.

In what was a game largely built on the quarterback battle between Kirk Cousins in his first official start with the Viking against Garoppolo, it was Minnesota's defense that made all the difference in the contest.

He completed two third-and-long passes during a 14-play, 73-yard possession in the second quarter that reached the 1, only to watch Linval Joseph and Harrison Smith force Alfred Morris to lose a fumble on second-and-goal with 2:18 left before halftime and the Vikings leading 10-3.

Garoppolo, was traded to the 49ers by the Patriots last October, led San Francisco to a flawless 5-0 record down the stretch last season. The Vikings clearly had Garoppolo off his game that led to him struggling to find any consistency.

Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph (82) catches an 11-yard touchdown pass in front of San Francisco 49ers safety Jaquiski Tartt, right, during the second half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Sept. 9, 2018, in Minneapolis.

Cousins took a shoulder to the back from 49ers linebacker Elijah Lee as he tumbled to the turf and came up just short, a risky way for a franchise quarterback to try to move the chains, but his determination to experience victory in his Vikings debut on Sunday afternoon was not to be reasoned with.

"We were rolling there toward the end", Kittle said.
