Ravens go for trick play instead of padding lead

Ravens coach John Harbaugh had his little brother in a headlock and was giving him a noogie, and might have just let him up off the floor to continue the fight.

The former special teams coach rolled the dice with his field goal unit, and it backfired.

The Ravens just turned down a chance at a two-touchdown lead, going for a fake field goal on fourth-and-9, which was stopped short. It’s the kind of momentum-swinging decision that looks bad because it didn’t work, but the down and distance made it a tough ask for kicker Justin Tucker.

The 49ers went three-and-out after the stop, so it only really changed field position, and took three points off the board.

    momentum swinging?

    What are the 49ers doing that makes it look like they have any momentum? Gore is going nowhere and Kaepernick is letting the Ed Reed pick eat him alive. The 49ers have had one good drive in one half that led to three points.
