Percy Harvin had nine receptions for 89 yards in Sunday's win while Adrian Peterson rushed for 86 yards on 25 carries.
Alex Smith completed 24-of-35 passes for 204 yards with a touchdown and an interception for the 49ers (2-1), who were aiming for their first 3-0 start since 1998.
Vernon Davis had five catches for 53 yards and a score in the setback and Frank Gore rushed for 63 yards with a fumble on 12 carries.

I will admit I was WRONG about Ponder. He picked that D apart. One thing that was really frustrating was the niners came out passing and passing and passing, then fell behind, then starting running a lot. WTF?
Bottom line....the Vikings CLEARLY wanted it more. HUGE sense of urgency on there team. Seemed like SF came in that dome as the NFC WEST CHAMPIONS instead of the blue collar guys that they are.
