Jackson's one-yard score gave Baltimore a first-half lead

The question is whether Jackson may have opened the door a bit more for Wilson after notching just 105 passing yards against the 49ers.

Running back Raheem Mostert stood out for the 49ers this afternoon, finishing with 19 carries for 146 yards and a score. Jimmy Garoppolo went 15 of 21 for 165 yards and one touchdown with no interceptions. While they now sit at No. 1 in the NFC, they would drop all the way down to No. 5 if Seattle beats Minnesota on Monday Night Football.

In a thrilling first half, the two teams exchanged touchdowns despite the expectation of a defensive battle. The quickest a team has clinched the division in a 16-game season is 11 games, the Saints did so in 12. Both of San Francisco's two losses this season have come by such a means.

Constantly on the move and willing to use his legs to get first downs, Jackson's utilized his athleticism best in the biggest moments of the game, including a critical fourth-and-1 on the Ravens' game-winning drive.

A key match up to watch will be 6-foot-3 205-pound wide receiver Michael Thomas and 6-foot-3 205-pound 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman who's coming in hobbled after spraining his knee Sunday in Baltimore.

Jackson has thrown for 2,532 yards, 25 touchdowns and five interceptions while completing 66 percent of his passes. The Niners lost in Baltimore, 20-17. Over the past 13 years, no quarterback had even hit 900 yards rushing before Jackson got there this year (He has 977 yards going into Week 14).

With a fantastic effort, 49ers safety Marcell Harris chased down Jackson, and stripped the ball right out of his hands and into his own possession. They then proceeded to take over six minutes off the clock before nailing the kick. This would give them the AFC North title. 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.

In turn, the 49ers went for it themselves at Baltimore's 35-yard line. The mark is now held by Michael Vick, who rushed for 1,039 yards in 2006 while playing for the Falcons.
