    He always knew 49 ers are a more complete team . Not just a one man show . The one man show could not beat the titans , you need a team

      Niners were humbled and battle tested all season. Ravens we’re doing nothing but be cocky and say they were already SB champs. Glad to see my Niners continue. 😤

          Steven A you are a real hater you are beginning to get on my last nerve as a matter of fact you have got on my last nerve in your irritating Lamar Jackson is the best quarterback even other teams like him you are just say true hater

            That was an embarrassing take by SAS. He's made the program a total joke and let Lamar's play expose him for not really knowing football. That's why he's unnatually animated & hysterically loud to overshadow that he's clueless or pretending, if schtick & comedy skits is the direction the network wants to take sports entertainment.

              If he says anything good about Lamar, he will have to admit that he was wrong.

                        The rain worked both teams. Were the Ravens playing without an opponent?

                              Without the rainy conditions, and on neutral ground, how do y'all think it really plays out?
                              I don't think it's as close as ppl think.
                              SF is for real. BAL got lucky with a field goal as time expires (Don't forget Robbie Gould isn't missing the kicks that SFs backup kicker has been shanking)

                              Not to mention just having Kittle and Brieda contributing minimally has a SF win written all over it.

                                They won by a field goal. They both battled good. Time will only tell.

                                  Honestly I'm a 49er fan but to be honest are you guys impressed by the whole ravens team or just Lamar Jackson because that's what it sounds like not gonna lie good game but dam if it wasn't for Lamars running game I dont know how it would have ended but I'm not gonna say "but what if" give the whole team credit

                                      49ers showed teams how to handle Lamar. Ravens getting knocked out in the playoffs.

                                        spazzdineveryway yeah and then the Ravens said aight fine we’ll just have Andrews, Ingram, Tucker, Hill, Hollywood Brown, and our defense beat you. And wait a minute containing means having 2 TDs dropped on your head? That’s containment to you?

                                          Those three plays the Patriots ran in the SB last year -- that Dan Orlovsky was talking about is called Hoss Y Juke... the Patriots ran in with different looks but similar concept on three consecutive plays.
