49ers Vs. Vikings: San Francisco Loses, Fails to Cover Spread

The San Francisco 49ers went to the Twin Cities in Minnesota as 6.5-point favorites in their game against the Vikings on Sunday. The Niners lost, 24-13, and didn't reach the over-under -- which was at 43 -- failing all those who bet with them.

San Francisco scored 10 unanswered points and trailed, 17-13, after three quarters despite being dominated in the first half. The 49ers were still very much in the game, but lost their composure in the fourth. Quarterback Alex Smith fumbled and threw an interception late in the fourth quarter, and the 49ers could not capitalize on fumbles by Minnesota running back Toby Gerhart.

It was a frustrating loss, especially given all of the excitement about the 49ers team and its stout defense and loaded offense. Nothing seemed to click with any consistency on Sunday, and it showed in the final score.

Now the 49ers go further east to the Meadowlands to play the New York Jets, and open the week as four-point favorites on Sunday, in a battle of 2-1 teams.
