6:48 pm
northwest to about 20 to 35 miles an hour. at 6:00 tomorrow morning, still blowing pretty good along the shoreline at half moon bay, 22 mile-an-hour winds in san jose. what happens for the rest of the day? well, very gently it eases off by tomorrow night at this time, but still will have winds in the 20 mile-an-hour range. so pretty good stiff breeze around the bay area through the day tomorrow. all because of low pressure that has sunk in over the central sierra, triggering the northwesterlies in combo with the high offshore. it will be windy tomorrow, but we're done with the rain for now. sunny skies on the way for the bay area. all the rain we had has pretty much dried up. that northwesterly flow is a dry flow. a rogue shower or two wouldn't be a complete stunner, but probably won't happen. same time, we've got the rain that was in the bay area today, quarter of an inch, three quarters of an inch. turns into snow in the mountains where they have winter storm warnings posted through 10:00 tonight. gusty winds through tomorrow. temps will warm into the mid- 60s midweek, but no rain until next weekend. heading out of the bay area,

...for goodness' sake. that was two months ago..s become one of . remember when the 49ers dominated the minnesota vikings in the first game of the season? well, that was two months ago. since then, the vikings have become one of the best teams in the league and they were back in the bay area today. this time, to face the raiders. quarterback teddy bridgewater, picked four spots ahead of derek carr in the 2014 draft, and he got ellisson who broke a tackle and scored. 7-0 minnesota, just like that. oakland's offense got off to a slow start, but got it going in the second quarter. carr to wolford for the 10-yard
6:53 pm
touchdown. vikings lead 13-7. next raider possession, carr throws one up in the wind of the coliseum, to the rookie amari cooper who brings it down. 38-yard gain and the raiders are in minnesota territory again. three plays later, carr to holmes, who makes the catch for a 34-yard touchdown and raiders take a 14-13 lead. they are going into half time up 14-13, right? no. on the ensuing kickoff, daryl patterson mishandled it, got it back and there he goes, right up the sideline. one quick move there are and he's going 93 yards. no, that was not a clip on sebastian janikowski. what a momentum changer. 20-14 minnesota. carr driving, picked off by newman, his second pick of the game. on the very next play, adrian peterson put it away for minnesota. he broke a tackle and went 80
6:54 pm
yards for the touchdown. ap finishes the game with 203 yards. minnesota wins, 30-14. they are 7-2, alone atop the nfc north while the raiders fall to 4-5. >> they are a good team. they play better than we did today. they coached better, they played better and they earned it. we have to take our lumps today and, you know, deal with it and move on. >> games get tough, you still got to be able to execute. that's going to be up to each of us in this locker room to tighten up. like you say, we have winnable games. just got to go out there and execute. >> two straight losses now. a game behind the bills in the final wild card spot in the afc. if you're looking for optimism, i got it. oakland's next three opponents have a combined record of 8-19. the cheers for peyton manning would quickly turn to boos in denver this afternoon. manning had the worst game in his career, simply put. he completed only 5 of 20
6:55 pm
passes. he was picked off four times. he now has 17 interceptions this year. manning benched in the third quarter for brock osweiler. the chiefs beat the broncos 29- 13. denver has dropped two straight after starting the season 7-0. question in green bay, what is wrong with aaron rodgers? final minute, packers trailing detroit 18-10, but then rodgers finds the 11-yard touchdown, cutting the lead to 18-16. green bay goes for two, going for the tie. but it's dropped by adams and the lions still lead by two points. so the only chance left for the packers is to recover the onside kick. mason crosby's kick goes off the hands of calvin johnson, recovered by green bay with 32 seconds left. so the packers get into field goal range. crosby for the win, the kick is up from 52 yards out, but it's blocked. it never really did get up! 18-16, detroit's first win in green bay since george h.w.
6:56 pm
bush was president. packers have lost three straight. 49ers had the week off. they will be in seattle next sunday. at 3-6, they sit at the bottom of the nfc west. tonight on game day, former 49er quarterback jeff garcia says the fall of this 49er team looks very similar to that of a decade ago. >> do you regret the way you left the 49ers? >> it was unfortunate. i think you can really see some similarities to what just currently happened to what happened back there in '02 when they fired mariucci, '03 when they fired a lot of higher- priced players on the team. not only me, it was hurst, terrell owens, losing players that impactful on your team and that productive, they are tough to replace. >> when garcia and i were having that conversation, i had forgotten what a disaster and a debacle that really was.
6:57 pm
mariucci was fired over a telephone conversation. terry donahue was the general manager, who made miserable draft picks. and then they let garcia go over money. and the team went into a tail spin. >> he's saying that things seem familiar to him. >> very familiar. >> what else on game day? >> vern glenn will take us deep inside the raider locker room to figure out what the issues are going on. >> sounds good. thanks for watching. "60 minutes" is coming up next. >> with the latest on we'll see you again at 11:00. ,, ,,,,,,
