The 49ers will travel nearly 2,000 miles to play in Minnesota. The 49ers have faced one of the easiest schedules so far this season and are dealing with some key injuries. Christian McCaffrey is expected to play, which leads me to believe they need him tonight. The 49ers are among the best at covering tight ends and at stopping the run.

The Vikings have been competitive in every game this season and their biggest defeat was by seven points to the Kansas City Chiefs.ย  The Vikings have been stout against the run, and even better in coverage against running backs. In order for Minnesota to have a chance, they are going to need their receivers to step up.
