GALLERY: Tomsula Era begins with win over Vikings
Primtetime at Levi's
49ers players (lower left) run on to the field at Levi's Stadium during introductions prior to the season-opener against the Vikings on Monday, September 14, 2015.
Hyde gets the ball early
The 49ers received the opening kickoff Monday night, and one their first drive, running back Carlos Hyde carried the ball four times for 28 yards. Hyde finished the first half with 83 yards on 12 carries and gave the 49ers a 7-0 lead in the final minute of the half with a 10-yard touchdown run.
The 49ers' first drive ended when Andrew Sendejo (not pictured) blocked a 28-yard field goal attempt by Phil Dawson. Marcus Sherels picked the ball up and returned it 44 yards before being pushed out of bounds by Vance McDonald.
Midway through the first quarter, 49ers running back Reggie Bush appeared to hurt his left leg. After hobbling to the sideline, he was carted to the locker room. The 49ers ruled him out for the game with a calf injury.
Former Australian rugby star Jarryd Hayne's much-anticipated NFL debut didn't go as he had had hoped. Back to receive a punt in the first quarter, he lunged to try to catch the ball and never secured it. The Vikings recovered the fumble. Hayne carried the ball four times for 13 yards and caught two passes for 14 yards in his NFL debut.
Kap's first half
Colin Kaepernick's final stats: 17-of-26 for 165 yards with seven rushes for 41 yards.
49ers get on the board
The Vikings and 49ers almost played a scoreless half of football, but Carlos Hyde ran in for a 10-yard touchdown with 47 seconds left. The run included a nifty spin-move to get away from defenders.
During halftime, the 49ers inducted former defensive lineman Charles Haley into their teams' Hall of Fame. Haley was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in August.
49ers add to lead
After the Vikings punted on the first drive of the second half, the 49ers put together a 14-play, 73-yard drive that culminated in a 30-yard field goal by Phil Dawson to extend the lead to 10-0.
Hyde's big night
Carlos Hyde put the game out of reach with a 17-yard touchdown run midway through the fourth quarter to give the 49ers a 17-3 lead over the Vikings. Hyde finished with 168 yards and two touchdowns on 26 carries.
49ers win 20-3
Phil Dawson added a 25-yard field goal late in the fourth quarter to give the 49ers a 20-3 lead, which would stand up as the eventual final score. The win gave Jim Tomsula his first win as the full time head coach of the 49ers. Tomsula also won in the final game of the 2010 campaign as interim head coach, when he replaced the fired Mike Singletary.
