The fallout from the San Francisco 49ers' 24-13 loss to the Minnesota Vikings Sunday continues, as this was a game the 49ers clearly expected to win against a team that many feel will finish last in the NFC North.
Here's what 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh had to say after the game, per Comcast SportsNet Bay Area.
"I thought we were ready to play," 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said when asked if the team came out flat. "We didn't get the lead, if that's what you're referring to. That's obvious. But there are multiple things that always determine the outcome of a football game. And we had opportunities. We just didn't get it done."
Could the 49ers have overlooked a team that lost to the Indianapolis Colts the week before? Could they have bought into the hype as the NFL's best team going into Week 3? Players seemed to say that the team just didn't start off well, and gave credit to how the Vikings played.
San Francisco made some uncharacteristic mistakes, even though it got the benefit of a free challenge from the officials. It was also uncharacteristic to see another team's quarterback run for a touchdown against the normally attacking and faster 49ers defense.
