Final Score: Vikings 24, 49ers 16

 

The Vikings opened the 2018 campaign with a 24-16 win at US Bank Stadium over the San Fransisco 49ers. The highly anticipated debut of Kirk Cousins went well as the Vikings $84 million dollar man threw a pair of touchdowns to Stefon Diggs and Kyle Rudolph. The defense looked as stout as ever with the addition of Sheldon Richardson and an improved Danielle Hunter. Harrison Smith looked every bit like the first-team All Pro he was a season ago and Dalvin Cook returned to the field for the first time since tearing his ACL in week 4 of last season.
