Lamar Jackson, Ravens edge Jimmy Garoppolo, 49ers in 20-17 win


And if a team can compete with the speed of the Ravens offensive, it's the defense of the 49ers.

The Baltimore Ravens entered Sunday's game against the San Francisco 49ers as the NFL's hottest team.

The Ravens ran an identical play to one which set up their second touchdown of the game, with Jackson faking the run, and turning, before finding a massive hole on the left side.

The Ravens rank first in the National Football League in total rushes (407), rushing yards (2,316), rushing yards per game (210.5) and 17 rushing touchdowns. Lamar Jackson suffered through his worst passing performance in recent memory, missing on a number of short throws.

San Francisco's offense was led by running back Raheem Mostert, who gained 146 yards on 19 carries, including a 40-yard touchdown scamper.

Now it's the 49ers' turn to see if they've got what it takes to match up with the multi-faceted Jackson, the league's top-ranked rushing attack and a team averaging 35.1 points per game.

With the explosiveness behind Lamar Jackson taking on one of the league's most risky defenses in the 49ers, it's safe to assume this intense battle will be decided on one of the final drives towards the end of the fourth quarter.

Eden Hazard opines who should win Ballon D’Or 2019 next week
Speaking in an interview with Le Parisien , Real Madrid winger Eden Hazard was asked about the 2019 Ballon D'Or . The 20-year-old is widely touted as one of the players who is a potential future victor of the Ballon d'Or .

The Niners struck first on a 33-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to wide receiver Deebo Samuel on a fourth-and-two play.

It certainly would not be a surprise if the Ravens get to the Super Bowl in Miami and end up raising the Lombardi trophy, especially if Lamar Jackson continues to play the way he has.

The San Francisco 49ers shut down one elusive quarterback during Week 12.

For the most part, Jackson won this one with his legs. He completed only 14 of 23 passes for 105 yards and lost a fumble.

"You think the 49ers are going to the Super Bowl?" Plus, I expect the Falcons to make a big effort as a homeless at home in what is pretty much their Super Bowl on Thanksgiving night.

A Baltimore punt pinned the 49ers at their own one-yard line, and that gave them solid field position as they got the ball back, starting at their own 41.
