Mike Hughes intercepts Jimmy Garoppolo for pick-six

It was a game that saw them take some of the steam off 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo by intercepting him three times while getting three sacks.

In the third quarter, when Kendrick Bourne lost his footing on a sideline route, Garoppolo's pass sailed straight to Vikings rookie Mike Hughes for a 28-yard interception return for a touchdown and a 17-3 lead.

"It was pretty smooth sailing there for a while", Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said, "and it was good to find the fight and the heart that we had there at the end". "It was both of our faults, but whenever you throw an interception it's always on the quarterback", said Garoppolo, who finished 15 for 33 for 261 yards. He faced plenty of pressure, highlighted by DeForest Buckner and his 2½ sacks, and there were a handful of awkward-looking plays produced by the Vikings. "Just a tough way to end it".

Cousins went 20 for 36 for 244 yards, targeting Adam Thielen 12 times.

COMEBACK COMPLETE: Cook had 16 carries for 40 yards and six catches for 55 yards, a productive return to live action after tearing the ACL in his left knee about 11 months earlier. "He's poised and doesn't get rattled".

Also: The Dalvin Cook era is back on, and the Mike Hughes era promises to be a whole lot of fun.

Asked afterward about that head-first hustle, Cousins acknowledged the risk of such a play and said he might have been better served with a stutter-step or some kind of move to try to make Lee miss. Wide open after beating Anthony Barr up the seam, Kittle had what would've been a 30-yard completion fall off his fingers at midfield.

"We were rolling there toward the end", Kittle said. "I think he did an admirable job". Probably ran a bit too far with my arms out. Fred Zamberletti, the team's original athletic trainer who died last week at age 86, was honored with a pregame moment of silence.

There are no precise instructions for where receivers should go when a pass play breaks down.

"We want to see greatness from this team and we want to see them accomplish something that we weren't able to do", Smith told the crowd, "and we want them to do it for you". Garry Gilliam stepped in at right tackle.

Mackensie Alexander (ankle) missed Week 1 as well.

49ers: Host Detroit next Sunday.

The Vikings actually kept that late drive alive by a 49ers neutral zone infraction penalty on fourth-and-1, before punting four plays later.
