49ers Vs. Vikings Score Update: Niners Trail 7-0 After 1st Quarter

The San Francisco 49ers are looking to stay undefeated on the road as they take on the Minnesota Vikings at Mall of America Stadium on Sunday, though they find themselves in an early 7-0 hole after the first quarter of action.

The Vikings' offense opened the game with a 16-play, 82-yard drive that got them all the way down inside the 49ers' five-yard line before the defense forced a fourth and goal. Christian Ponder rolled out and found Kyle Rudolph for a one-yard touchdown pass to take the early 7-0 lead on that play.

Alex Smith and the 49ers offense would get stopped on their first drive of the game after Smith got sacked on a third and six by Chad Greenway to force an Andy Lee punt. San Francisco would force Minnesota to punt on their next possession, finishing the quarter in Minnesota territory with a first down on the 30-yard line.
