      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.

I look at every team each to specialized in different areas why is it so hard for haters to accept the ravens. Not too long ago we had the best defense in the league where was all the haters then ?
