The third week of the 2013 NFL Preseason schedule continues Sunday, August 25 and we will see the Minnesota Vikings travel to the Candlestick Park to take on the San Francisco 49ers . The kickoff time is 8:00 PM ET and the game will be televised on NBC.
This game is what many refer to as the dress rehearsal as it is pretty much the last time any of the true starters will play in the preseason. The 49ers are considered a Super Bowl favorite again this year, while many pundits predict a backslide for the Vikings.
The 49ers' Colin Kaepernick, who has played sparingly in the first two preseason games, will take the first-team reps on Sunday. Colt McCoy would be the second quarterback to enter the game. After that, Tolzien, B.J. Daniels or recently acquired veteran Seneca Wallace could be the next signal-caller to step into action.
The Vikings will play reigning league MVP Adrian Peterson, it’ll be his first game action since last season. It is good for quarterback Christian Ponder and the passing game that Peterson is playing because now they will get a more representative look at what kinds of looks they will see once the regular season begins and Peterson is in the backfield constantly.
