Takeaways from the 49ers victory Monday night:

▪ Carlos Hyde should have been given 28 touches a game last season.

▪ Jim Tomsula likes to keep tight ends busy.

▪ Adrian Peterson is just not effective on 372 days rest.

▪ Red numbers on black jerseys are difficult to read.

▪ Trent Dilfer did his best to drown out Chris Berman.
