The Minnesota Vikings improved their record to 2-1 after defeating the undefeated 49ers Sunday in a stunning upset.
The Pioneer Press described the win as a glimpse into the potential greatness of the Vikings squad led by a potential franchise quarterback, Christian Ponder's.
Ponder ran the Viking's offense with precision and authority in the 24-13 victory, completing 21 of 35 passing attempts for 189 yards, The Star Tribune reported.
While the Vikings found the end zone twice in the first half, the 49ers struggled only putting three points on the board.
The win was a huge confidence builder for the Vikings showing the potential of Minnesota players such as Christian Ponder, Percy Harvin and tight end Kyle Rudolph.
Rudolph, who had two touchdowns in the win, told the Star Tribune that the win is a "springboard" for the rest of our season.
The Vikings hope to carry their great performance into the game next week at the Detroit Lions.
