The 49ers' defense has been tremendous in their last two outings, holding their opponents to just 10 points in both games and helping their side reach .500 for the season. San Francisco is gathering momentum and looking dangerous as we approach the home stretch of the regular season.
The Vikings are either tremendous or horrendous, evident from their 5-5 record this season. They managed to beat the Green Bay Packers in their last game, primarily due to Kirk Cousins' incredible performance, who has sneakily been one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL this season.
Ahead of a big game for both teams, look at the injury report and starting lineup for both teams.
