Dante Pettis makes fantastic toe-tapping catch for first career touchdown

The 49ers got themselves back into Sunday’s opener with an incredible connection between Jimmy Garoppolo and rookie wide receiver Dante Pettis late in the third quarter, cutting the Vikings lead to 24-13.

Garoppolo withstood initial interior pressure from the Vikings defensive line, and rolled out to his left before throwing a strike to the back of the end zone with a rusher in his face. The ball hit Pettis perfectly in stride, with the rookie making a finger-tip, toe-tapping catch to secure his first career TD.
