    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. On any given Sunday.

    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

    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?

    They because Jimmy G cant hang on to the ball. He has 5 lost fumbles (9 total fumbles) at minimum 3 were in great field position for other team. He needs to hold on to the fucking ball when he gets sacked

    Haters gonna hate. I love it this the same energy that motivated them to come out on top. 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 ?

    hot take: Stephen A. is right Jackson was incredible. We expected him to be incredible though. But could the 49ers defense contain him? They limit him to just _two_ TDs... to just 20 Points. Though I am more impressed with the Ravens as a team, I think my opinion about the 49ers (and especially their defense come playoff time) is what impressed me more about _THIS_ particular game.

  61. Matt Johnson

    Matt Johnson12 दिवसांपूर्वी

    Just one adjustment and the 49ers win this game. The DE's for the 49ers were responsible for the run, they ignored Jackson and crashed on the RB. Next game I guarantee the DE's will be responsible for Jackson, ignore the RB and hit Jackson every time he keeps or pretends to keep ball, let the rest of the DL and LB's take stop the RB.

  62. joseph D

    joseph D12 दिवसांपूर्वी

    49ers should of drove the ball with 3 timeouts before the half. Take a shot to score a td, if not, take 3 pts. Get as close as you can in fg range. 4 & 1and you pass? Mostert avg 7 ypg! Why not a counter run, or QB sneak. If you're going to pass then why not throw a screen to Juzyczck or Kittle.. It's all good 9ers will learn from it
