Quick Take: 49ers run past Vikings

Around the League editor Gregg Rosenthal has his takeaways from the game:

From Around the League:
» Lessons from Friday's preseason games

» These 49ers look familiar. They rushed for almost 200 yards in the first half alone. Alex Smith led an eight-play drive that took up almost eight minutes with only 16 passing yards.

» Kendall Hunter looked explosive and Brandon Jacobs converted a few short-yardage situations. The 49ers' backfield is as deep as any in the league.

» 49ers backup Colin Kaepernick reminded everyone what an explosive athlete he is on a 78-yard touchdown run. He's battling Josh Johnson for the No. 2 job behind Smith and remains the favorite.

» Two drives, two field goals for Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder against a strong defense. Not bad.
