Takeaways as 49ers Fall to Ravens, 20-17


Earl Thomas says Baltimore Ravens are going to the Super Bowl

He isn't so sure San Francisco will get there, but he seems positive that the Ravens will.

But the double-threat quarterback was solid when it counted.

Jimmy Garoppolo went 15 of 21 for 165 yards for San Francisco. The defense has faced dual threat quarterbacks like Kyler Murray (twice) and Russell Wilson, but will it have an answer for Lamar Jackson? In the second quarter, the Ravens sandwiched a touchdown run by Jackson and a field goal by Tucker around a 49ers' touchdown on a 40-yard dash by running back Raheem Mostert. Jackson was still effective as a runner, but the 49ers' ultra-athletic defensive front proved the Ravens' offense is not invincible against.

It's tough to come up with enough adjectives to describe the Ravens offense, and Baltimore wide receiver Willie Snead had a similar problem listing the qualities of a San Francisco defense that last week humbled Green Bay star quarterback Aaron Rodgers in a 37-8 rout.

On the very first drive of the game, the 49ers took the lead through a fantastic, leaping 33-yard touchdown grab from Deebo Samuel as he rose above Marcus Peters to secure the catch.

It was a much closer game this time for the Ravens, but they proved this time that they can win in the clutch.

The Ravens got even by converting a fumble lost by Garoppolo on a sack into a touchdown pass from Jackson to tight end Mark Andrews.

And he could well turn out to be right about the Ravens, who are playing as well as any team in the league. This unit is now ranked third in rushing defense (87.7) and showed that against the Rams, as their rushing game picked up a mere 22 yards on the ground. Baltimore managed to score on two consecutive drives. Two plays into that half, strong safety Jaquiski Tartt suffered a rib injury, and was replaced by Marcell Harris.

At 5/1, the 49ers are the bookmakers' third favorite, marginally ahead of the 11/2 New Orleans Saints, who became the first team to book a playoff spot this season with a 26-18 road win over the Atlanta Falcons on Thanksgiving Day.
