Ravens beat 49ers 20-17: Questions, Comments, and Concerns

Tuesday, 03 Dec, 2019

"I'm on the sideline praying, but at the same time I know Tucker can do it".

The Baltimore Ravens defeated the San Francisco 49ers 20-17 on a field goal as time expired Sunday, Dec. 1, the second loss for the 49ers this season. It was the Ravens' 48th touchdown of the season, breaking the franchise mark set by the 2009 team. Give credit to them.

Jones, the sixth pick of the draft, won his first two starts in place of Eli Manning but has dropped eight straight.

The Ravens went 6-0 in those games, winning most in lopsided fashion.

If this was a Super Bowl preview, the rematch in Miami should be competitive and entertaining.

"I'm getting a little recognition from you guys now, and when "Harbs" [Head Coach John Harbaugh] was breaking it down after the game", Wormley said.

If we told you before the season that the 49ers would find themselves at 10-2 twelve games into the season, the assumption would be that Jimmy Garoppolo had made the leap from potentially great to one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. "And sometimes they're not, but the ones that count, and the ones that are, you have to be ready for". But, the Ravens made him a non-factor in the passing game. The Ravens had not even punted on a drive with Jackson at quarterback since November 3, their 17-point victory over the New England Patriots. They have proven that much through 13 weeks of the season. But.

Many feel the 49ers No. 1 ranked defense has the pieces to slow down Jackson. In total, Jackson has 25 passing touchdowns, seven rushing scores, six fumbles and five interceptions. Jackson was still angry about how poorly he threw some passes because of the weather. Jackson ran 16 times for 101 yards, but his longest run was 14 yards and he produced just one video game-like run during the game. If the 49ers can contain Lamar Jackson, the Ravens' offense will become more one-dimensional.

A win for Seattle would put them in a tie for the NFC West lead with San Francisco. It was that play that gnawed at him.

Jackson said that Tucker has "that golden leg". "I'm hot about that right now". "He's a ball carrier and deserves to be protected, just like the rest of us".

"That said, there are going to be a lot of opportunities to change the perception. I ain't moved on from it yet".

Jackson had a very good game as a runner. He did not try to force any of his spectacular plays Sunday. "He has had a couple games this year where he's needed to step up and really be the guy making the plays late and he's done it".

When Tucker's kick went through, the Ravens raced onto the field in celebration, but it was striking that the 49ers were not particularly quiet or shaken in their own locker room.

Regardless of Monday's outcome, San Francisco has another tough test this weekend against the New Orleans Saints at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The identity of the 49ers' offense is their running game, and their running back, Mostert, was averaging 7.7 yards per.

"We expected to hold people to less than whatever they had". "We're one of the best defenses in the league". Their dominance the past month had been so impressive - with four wins against playoff-caliber teams by 14, 17, 34 and 39 points - that they hadn't even trailed in more than a month. These two teams played a tight and compelling game in hard conditions Sunday. Regardless, when Harbaugh keeps the offense on the field, the players love it. "It's a good feeling, but we have a lot more work to do".
