8:50 pm
fourth and goal. >> simple bust here. fourth down. how can you allow adam to be uncovered on the biggest play of the drive? >> next 9ers drive, deebo samuel. is he a runner? is he a catcher? is he both? it's 20 yards. it's a touchdown. we are tied at 7. >> is there anything that deebo samuel can't do? nothing, feldy, nothing at all. >> second quarter. same score. cousins is going to find him, again. 20-yard touchdown. 14-7. vikings retake the lead. kirk cousins, when given any type of time, very dangerous. final seconds of the half, third and 11, garoppolo finds brandon aiyuk. 24 yards down inside the ten. what a catch. >> we had an aiyuk sighting. he played almost close to 100 yards receiving but he was big time. >> very next play, garoppolo, duane jennings in the end zone.
8:51 pm
tied at 14 before the half. >> duane made some big catches today. made his presence known, especially since deebo didn't catch his first pass into the quarter. >> second and goal for the 9ers. deebo runs it in for three yards out. second rushing touchdown of the game for him. fifth of the season. 21-14, 9ers. >> db's got to be able to make a decision when they tackle deebo and unfortunately they did not want to. >> nice play here. picks off cousins. >> big time by aziz. it's one thing to say they threw it to you. it's another thing to catch it, he did that, feldy. >> next play, elijah mitchell pounding it in from two yards out. 49ers lead 28-14. three unanswered touchdowns. alexander madison with the six yard score. vikings comeback. vikings miss the extra point so the lead is cut to eight. after a robbie gould field goal made it 31-20, 9ers are kicking off. kenny goes 99 yards to the house.
8:52 pm
the vikings would miss the conversion. so it's 31-26, 9ers. but the vikings -- final minute, 9ers up eight. it's fourth down. vikings driving to try to tie it. but cousins' pass is incomplete. the 49ers win 34-26. kyle shanahan, you guys have won three in a row. what do you have? >> i think we definitely played our best football these last three games and just in all three phases, i thought this one was a huge one because it was a little different than the last two because it came down to the wire and things went good for both sides at certain times in the game. and then, momentum flipped a number of times and i thought we had the momentum bilk big time at the beginning of the game. i felt like we lost it right there and at the end of the second quarter, i thought we gained it right back and were able to score on the open drive of the third quarter and then defense getting that turnover and getting us down there right away and all the guys that went out in the second half.
8:53 pm
just it was really cool the adversity our guys kind of overcame. and the kick returned which kind of flipped it back. then, we missed the field goal and didn't hesitate. they went out there and stepped it up and i was just really proud of everyone on the team. and everyone involved in this. >> a closer look is brought to you by zenni. the official eyewear of the san francisco 49ers. zenni has changed the game in eyewear. finally, making prescription glasses affordable for everybody. take a closer look at zenni.com. takeo, let's take a closer look at that rushing game of the 49ers. 208 rushing yards. 133 courtesy of elijah mitchell's missed one game with a fractured middle finger. played this game with a pin in that finger. 66 yards rushing by deebo samuel. the 9ers rushed 39 times. they dominated the line of scrimmage.
8:54 pm
>> yeah. and a lot of that had to do with the confidence of what they had done in the previous weeks. this team has found their identity. their identity is we're going to win at the line of scrimmage. we are going to run the football. regardless if we get less than four yards to carry and we will continue to do that and make it easier on jimmy g as he continue to progress throughout the season. >> there's some significant about rushing 30 or more times under the kyle shanahan era because they have done it in 31 games and they're 26-5 when they do that. they are also undefeated when they rush 40 or more times. so it seems very simple. they should just keep rushing the ball as much as they can. >> yeah. you would think. and when you looked at the beginning of the game, i was questioning that. i was like hold up, this is not the same 49ers team that i have seen in the previous two weeks. but they went back to the sideline, made adjustments, and that's -- carried them to a win. >> time for a special delivery.
8:55 pm
a special delivery is brought to you by amici's east coast pez pizryia. and for the third-straight week, 49ers win the turnover battle. only one interception. that came by jimmy g in that first quarter. but the vikings turned it over twice. so, three-straight games they won the turnover battle and three-straight games, they have won the game. >> that's important because when you win the turnover battle, you are giving more opportunities for your offense and you are not turning the football over. all the good teams when you look across the league, they make those -- they win those games like that. by winning that turnover margin. >> one of the things that everyone was concern about. deebo samuel in the third quarter was running and right before he got hit, he sort of just pulled up you could tell. it was his groin. left the game third quarter. didn't come back, takeo. he is going to have an mri tomorrow. but on social media, he and other people have said they are not that concerned. how concerned are you that he left the game? he is their best player this season. >> he is the best player and i'm concerned and i'm concerned
8:56 pm
because if it wasn't that bad, then he would not have left the game. but the one thing i can say i am encouraged as well is because when you typically have a groin of that nature, most time when it hit guys, you just completely -- it's like somebody shot you. but with him, before he even got into his full stride, before he even made a cut, he knew something wasn't right. therefore, he shut it down. and i think when you do that as a player, you become more in tune with your body. and now, you know, okay, now it's beast up or healing time because you didn't injure yourself worse. >> so maybe we hope more of a tweak. we will take a break. we will come back. elay ja mitchell. how good is this guy? he is a raging cajun. louisiana lafayette. what a huge game he had. more on 25.

8:59 pm
we are back and this is the right connection. it's presented by t-mobile. and jimmy garoppolo had the right connection with not just one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine different receivers. elijah mitchell had five receptions. brandon aiyuk had three. jennings and juszczyk had two each. takeo, what do you think of jimmy g spreading the wealth? >> i like that. he spreaded the wealth quite well today. and i liked it because i thought he took another stage in groin understanding that he can believe in players that don't have the last name as samuel. that doesn't have the last name as kittle. and i think that produces confidence. and now, guys actually will believe when they are running out for routes, if i'm not one of those two guys, i really got an opportunity to receive a pass today. >> i would like this about jimmy g. he threw that pick in the first quarter. he doesn't seem flopable. if you look at his face, if you
9:00 pm
were playing poker with him, takeo, you wouldn't know if he had a royal flush or if he had nothing because he doesn't seem like he's that rattled. he throws the bad pick. he is not screaming, he's not -- he's got the same look on his face. >> yeah, he had the same look and i think the -- the one thing that when i looked at him and i saw the conversation he had with kyle on the sideline, he knew, like, i got it, coach. i got it. he tried to force it in there. he admitted it in the postgame pressor. but the true signs of a true champion is how you continue to fight after adversity hits. he fought back well and, therefore, they won the game. >> so, jimmy was on the ball. but you know who else was on the ball? >> who's on the ball brought to you by manscaped. the official below-the-waist grooming partner of the san francisco 49ers. over 4 million men trust manscaped tools for their family jewels. >> elijah mitchell, fourth 100-yard game. 133 yards. 27 carries. playing with a pin in his
9:01 pm
fractured-right finger. six games remaining and this guy could go over a thousand. he was a sixth-round pick, 194th overall out of louisiana, lafayette. a raging cajun. he's not just good, takeo, he is a tough. i mean, playing with a broken finger. >> i don't even see how he was able to carry the ball. and as a defender, if i knew he had a pin in his hand, i'm not saying i'm trying to hurt him. but i just want to see is that grip the same before you broke your hand? >> you would be trying those strip things where you try to punch the ball out. >> basically. >> you got his finger, you wouldn't feel bad about it. six games remaining. going to surpass, barring some miraculous disaster, he will pass roger craig's mark of 725 yards for most yards by a 49er rookie. that happened back in 1983. craig one of the best with his
9:02 pm
famous high steps and he could surpass him. >> that's huge. and i like history like that. to be able to see this young man come in, he came into this season, and he wasn't even picked to be the starter. nobody knew that he was going to get as much playing time or even make the team. but it goes to show you when you have the opportunity or when the opportunity presents itself, it's important that you be prepared for that moment. he was more than prepared and he's not going to relinquish that starting position to anybody moving forward. >> sunday to sunday, we have you you covered for your 49ers coverage. starting tomorrow with press conferences at 9:00 p.m. tuesday, 49ers talk. wednesday, you can ask papa. friday, it's game plan. and then, sunday, pregame live at 12:00 and postgame immediately after the game. we will take a break. when we come back, we'll look at the playoff picture. now, very rosy for the 49ers and also look ahead to those dreaded seahawks. hasn't been a great rivalry

degrees. out towards san francisco, as terry mentioned, still near 60. clear skies. no fog around the bay right now. different story if you head into areas east of livermore. little bit of patchy haze out towards tracie. 50 currently in dublin and walnut creek and concord may see a little bit of patchy fog heading towards tomorrow morning. currently, 51 degrees and air quality and patchy fog likely to be the top two weather issues of the week with high pressure, no chances of rain. it will have these hazy skies lingering for another day. moderate-air quality, again, for tomorrow. highest levels of kind of the trapped wood smoke pollution will be up around the north bay and parts of the inland-east bay and santa clara valley for your monday. and i talked about this. the visibility. a little bit lower at this hour compared to the same time last night in concord. four-mile visibility just fine. only an issue if that drops below one mile which we might see a little of that over the central valley over the next couple morns. morning temperatures, once again, starting in the mid-to upper 40s and our highs
9:31 pm
tomorrow. again, average high should be 60 to 63. instead, you have got 73 in san jose and the 73 we saw in oakland today was good enough for record highs. so many locations tomorrow, if you manage low to mid-70s, close to some records. san francisco to oakland, mid-60s to near 70. 72 degrees in santa rosa. tri-valley, upper 60s and low 70s. and morgan hill could be close to 80 degrees tomorrow. so notice here, fog around the central valley. that will be a staple of the forecast for the middle part of the week. and just no rain coming through. so we got the hazy skies and fog, a clear sign you got high pressure kind of locked in over the bay area like a lid on top of us through about thursday and friday. the window of opportunity, to see a chance of rain coming back might be right around this time late-next weekend into monday. but that next storm is taking a more inland track. so, while there will be a chance at seeing some rain by monday, december 6th, these storms typically bring more wind and we
9:32 pm
will show you why herewise' head through next weekend, no rain through next weekend but we monday, that system as it drops inland from the north, will have some colder air behind it which should be good for a little sierra snow but unfortunately as we get into tuesday, we are going to be seeing some gusty-north winds picking up. so it will be pretty critical i think. monday, december 6th, we really do need to see some rain because we are going to be following up that particular storm with some north wind. so, we are talking about the eight to ten-day forecast right there. no issues, obviously, as we head into next weekend. san francisco, not much change. mid-to upper 60s as we go through the week with fog at times and we roll into december in the 70s. near-record highs. possible through the middle part of the week. then, weekend changes we hope with more clouds sunday and we hope the storm door opening up for us. if that were an eight-day forecast, you would see it there. really have to go beyond to find the rain but there is some hope at the end of next weekend. >> go out as far as you need to go to give us some hope, good

"entwined" is back. you are looking at video from last year. peacock meadow will once again transform into an enchanted nighttime forest with many different shapes, changing lights. visitors can explore twisting paths, colorful trees, and a large cluster of flowers. the display begins on thursday and will run through february. and new video just in to our newsroom. the los altos festival of lights parade. you know who brought this to us? >> who? >> the one and only raj mathai. >> ah, nice. >> he was there, broke out the camera. get some video. he -- you know, he's got a future -- he's got a future as a photographer, that man. been going on in that town -- it goes back to 1977. last year, festival organizers got creative. they had to keep it going and they did during the pandemic. floats were parked and people drove by. this time, switching it around. this year, things are back to
9:51 pm
normal. and taking a look at that fantastic video raj shot. i mean, what bufrl weather for that event today. >> a lot of times raj asks me, rob, is it going to rain on santa out there? and the pressure is on. late november, the odds of that are really high but i got chris and johnny at home. i cannot have it rain on santa. so thankfully, just fine out there in los altos. right now, 57 degrees. there you go, christmas in the park in san jose. looking very festive. 50 currently in dublin with a little bit of haze out there. walnut creek, we will be watching this area out toward the strait in solano county. tomorrow morning, may see a patch or two of fog and still that ongoing air quality. hazy skies are going to continue with high pressure kind of like acting a bit like a lid on top of the bay area and not a lot of wind to push some of that air pollution out, we will continue with these moderate-air quality levels and at times will be on watch for patchy fog. visibility down to 4 miles in concord. we will see if that drops closer to one mile or less heading to tomorrow morning. startling off in the 40s so that
9:52 pm
part looks and feels more like late november. but the highs not so much. average highs, instead, mid-70s for another day. morgan hill, even san francisco and oakland, upper 60s to low 70s around the bay side locations of the east bay and norlgt bay temperatures up to 72 in santa rosa. so as you notice here, no rain in the forecast. the clouds you see there are areas of fog setting up from the late-night hours into the early morning. and we will have to see if that gets a bit more thick into central valley with the light offshore breezes that will probably try to creep into some north bay valleys but no rain. so when you have fog and a little air quality issues, high pressure is the cause of that sending storms off to the north and really not allowing the lower levels of the atmosphere to kind of mix out and get us the better air quality. what we need to see happen late-next weekend is the high scoots off to the west just enough as the system drops in along the west coast. but notice where it's moving, it is kind of tracking inland
9:53 pm
across the pacific northwest. it's not coming across the ocean with a good moisture so as these storms track inland, they tend to be a bit colder and not bring quite as much rain. so the window to see any rain will be in the forecast probably around next monday dropping into the north here, which should be good news for the sierra. that should also bring in some cooler air for some snow showers at times but gets out pretty quickly by monday evening. then, by tuesday, here is the next part. we will have to watch closely in another week is the potential for some gusty-north wind. so hopefully, we manage some rain about eight days from now. seven-day forecast. no rain there. look at san francisco as we begin december near some record highs around the bay area. upper 60s around san francisco. pretty much through the week. and valleys will continue to see these numbers in the 70s outside as we go through the next five days. trending a little bit cooler next weekend. change is ahead. i don't think it's going to arrive by the end of the weekend but we hope just off the chart there. monday will be fingers crossed
9:54 pm
our opportunity to see some rain. so warm temperatures around the bay area. hot, kind of like those 49ers have been playing lately. >> oh, good one. i know. >> doing a segue. i do some -- good news there. beautiful week and then some rain coming. more good news. mr. anthony flores. he is joining us now. i mean, it's not just -- i don't know. three weeks ago, it was like -- >> they were awful. >> yeah, they were. >> now, they are playing great. >> and no one's talking about trey lance. talking about jimmy and the defense. >> this was a good game and there was a five-minute stretch from the end of the second quarter to the start of the third quarter where the game turned in the favor for the 49ers. hey, the 49ers are the hottest team in the nfc. they won three in a row. that's right. three in a row. after sinking the vikings today at levi's stadium, check this out. kyle shanahan getting jimmy g the business. why? because number ten threw an interception on the 9ers' first possession that gave the vikings the lead and they went on to score a touchdown. the 9ers would answer with deebo samuel.
9:55 pm
scores on a 20 yard touch down roun run. he had just one catch but a difference maker on the ground. then, the vikings led for most of the first half but the momentum changed just before the break. garoppolo hits jennings for the touchdown. then the 9ers got the ball to start second half. deebo samuel with his second rushing touch down of the game. a season high 208 yards on the ground. then, defense comes up big. aziz picks off kirk cousins, returns it inside the five. one of two forced turnovers for the 9ers that would lead to a short touchdown run by elijah mitchell and a 14-point 49ers' lead. the rookie had 27 of the team's 39 carried and he rushed for 133 yards. this game was wild. the vikings had a kick return for a touchdown but on fourth down -- right there -- that was the ball game. the 49ers make it three in a row. they beat the vikings, 34-26. get this. they move into the sixth seat in the nfc playoff race.
9:56 pm
>> think we definitely played our best football these last three games and i thought this one was a huge one because it was a little different than the last two because it came down to the wire. didn't hesitate. they went out there and stepped it up and i was just really proud of everyone on the team. >> we have been taking a week by week mentality and it's done well for us so i think we got to keep doing that going forward and we will be in a good spot. >> it will be tough because their next game is in seattle. to basketball, no official target date for klay thompson but he is working on his return to the court. today, the warriors' guard was assigned to santa cruz to practice with the team's g-league affiliate. as for the dubs, a day game against the clippers in the staple center. second half, warriors on the move and check out steph curry get being fancy behind the back to draymond for the finish. then, things get heated. curry wants the foul here. doesn't get it. he gets a t for yelling at the
9:57 pm
ref but he said that kind of fueled him the rest of the way. he scored 13 and watch this. after he buries the three, he gives the ref the t sign. the warriors beat the clippers 105-90 and here's steph on how the no-call fired him and the team up. >> have to be able to direct that energy into just putting the ball in the basket obviously after that. so that's why i feel like, you know, we do did it well where we don't let it become a distraction for the rest of the game. and it obviously helped open up the game. >> all right. to the ice, the sharks to take on the blackhawks. james rhymer was solid between the pipes, he made 29 saves for san jose and while they were up 1-nothing in the third and meyer added an empty netter his second goal of the game, the sharks win it 2-1. they are at new jersey on tuesday. one more note. according to multiple reports,
