Ravens, 49ers Now Have Best Conference Odds Of Reaching Super Bowl
Dec 02 2019
Things stayed close entering the fourth and final quarter, with both Baltimore and San Francisco logging a turnover en route to a 17-17 gridlock. This back half of their schedule doesn't get any easier. That's why they're picking Baltimore. Cornerback will return after missing the past six games with a knee injury. The Ravens are playing the best team on their schedule (even better than the New England Patriots). This unit is holding opponents to an average of 248.0 YPG and opposing quarterbacks to an average of 136.9 YPG.
It instantly ignited a racially charged debate concerning the idea of pigeonholing black quarterbacks more as athletes than pocket passers, especially since Jackson came into the league among a deep group of first round quarterbacks that included Baker Mayfield, Sam Darnold, Josh Allen, and Josh Rosen. A win against the Raiders would give Kansas City a three-game lead in the division with just four weeks left in the regular season. Fred Warner had 11 tackles and one sack, while Arik Armstead and Nick Bosa combined for eight tackles and three sacks. We're about to find out when Lamar Jackson takes on the 49ers' stout defensive front.
Jackson is quickly making a case for MVP honors and he displayed his highlight laden talents for all to see on Monday Night Football.
And though much has been made about Jackson's impeccable speed (he's on pace to break Michael Vick's single-season rushing record of 1,039 yards for a QB), he has shown this season that his arm can be just as deadly as his legs.
But Jackson is also on an unprecedented run. They converted on fourth and one from their own 44-yard line on their winning drive. They make good teams look like the Miami Dolphins and the Cincinnati Bengals. Behind them is the 49ers (145.6 YPG). The Ravens defense will dominate.
The Ravens have the NFL's No. 1 offense, but the 49ers have the NFL's No. 1 defense. San Francisco doesn't have any superstars on offense but have a balanced attack that will keep Baltimore on its toes. That point differential of 16.7 leads the NFL.
We recommend interesting sports viewing and streaming opportunities. You can criticize Mahomes and Wilson, but if you criticize Lamar Jackson it's like you are totally unacceptable.
