James Jones said, “I don’t see San Francisco going home from Minnesota in Week 1 with a win.

49ers vs Vikings Week 1 Predictions 2018
The Niners lost several players including defensive ends Elvis Dumervil and Tank Carradine. They also lost safety Eric Reid and even though they made a major signing in cornerback Richard Sherman, that will not be enough. It is a gamble that will most likely backfire on them.
Facing Cousins and Curtis Cothran is probably too early for the new look Niners’ defense and I don’t see how they’ll stop them. The predicted score of the Week 1 game will be 21-16 for the Vikings win.

Both Sides Key Rookies
Minnesota and San Francisco both have some promising rookies in their roster. These rookies can play a vital role on 49ers vs Vikings Week 1 Predictions since they actually execute the task on the game day.
Min Vikings Key Players To Watch
Wide Receiver is into the contract year and will work hard to pin down a new deal so expect a lot from him. Vikings made a defensive upgrade in former Pro Bowler, Sheldon Richardson. We will be eager to see how he fairs in this game.
TE Tyler Conklin is another Viking worth watching as he shows whether or not he can be a worthy successor to Kyle Rudolph. Vikings’ most talented offensive player, RB Dalvin Cook is fit for this game. Most interestingly, on a good day, he won’t disappoint.
SF 49ers Key Rookies
New QB Jimmy Garopolo will have it all to prove in this game. And he will probably be at it from the go. The pressure is on the defense and specifically Ahkello and Cassius to capture the vibrancy and efficiency depicted by the offensive players. 33-year-old OT Joe Staley will be proving that he is still a top player and it will be worth watching. The same applies to 49ers’ Running Back Jerrick McKinnon.
