But as far as losses go, it was another "solid" one if you believe in such things for the 49ers, and now it's time for them to head to New Orleans to see the 10-2 Saints in what could be a very similar game to the one we just saw here.
But considering how Jackson had been tormenting other defenses, Whitner believes the 49ers did an excellent job against the Ravens quarterback.
The league's potential Super Bowl preview between the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers was scheduled to go up against the Redskins game on Sunday afternoon, and in Washington D.C., it drew a much, MUCH bigger audience than the Redskins did.More news: Dolphins trick play baffles Eagles defense in huge win for Miami
Can anyone slow down Lamar Jackson? And there is some more glory, making a 50 yarder a 49 yarder. The race for the NFC's top seed is heating up, as there are now five teams (49ers, New Orleans Saints, Seahawks, Green Bay Packers, and Vikings) with just three losses on the season. We had every chance to win that game.
Robbie Gould made a 32-yard field goal for the 49ers in the third quarter to tie the game at 17 and the rest was history.
The NFC South champion Saints (10-2) are the only team to clinch so far. The Seahawks handed San Francisco their first loss earlier this season, giving Seattle a tie-breaker should they improve to 10-2. Though San Francisco's 1-2 record over the past three weeks has let the rest of the NFC's elite close the gap in the standings, the recipe the Niners have used all season long was alive and well in Baltimore.More news: Preaching blockchain in North Korea gets an American in trouble at home
Lamar Jackson spent just 105 yards (4 more than he ran) and did not complete more than a 20-yard touchdown pass to tight end Mark Andrews on linebacker Fred Warner. He had a career day with 146 yards on 19 carries and a 40-yard touchdown run. Both of these performances should be enough to push the Niners through the grind of the run-up to the playoffs, going forward, thanks to their stout defense.
The 49ers are still a really good football team with a great shot to punch their ticket to a Super Bowl.More news: Chandrayaan 2: NASA releases image of Vikram lander’s impact site
