But reality hit Minnesota hard Saturday, as the 49ers brought them back down to earth with a 27-10 win in the NFC divisional-round game at Levi’s Stadium.
Aside from The Faithful, no one was happier than Saints star wide receiver Michael Thomas. As the 49ers were putting the clamps on Kirk Cousins and the Vikings’ offense, Thomas fired off a couple tweets that were clearly shot at Minnesota.

Thomas wasn’t the only current NFL player to weigh in on how the 49ers manhandled the Vikings.
Even a few former NFL players had thoughts.
I know the Vikes OL is kind of a mess, but man was I wrong thinking the Vikes rushers would impose their will tonight more than SF’s. They validated the noise tonight.1976:28 PM – Jan 11, 2020Twitter Ads info and privacy24 people are talking about this
Straight up, @RSherman_25 was on Thielen like a millennial hooper’s draft night suit. Snug as a mug & no room to breath. Whole ankle & wrist showing, abs held tight by the top button, & wearing slip ons because tying a shoe could be tragic. Excellent press coverage.2,2795:20 PM – Jan 11, 2020Twitter Ads info and privacy357 people are talking about this
