Ray Rice fumble sets up 49ers field goal

Ray Rice may not like talking about it, but his fumbling problems in the playoffs are real.

Rice fumbled in the third quarter of the Super Bowl, and the 49ers recovered, setting up a David Akers field goal that cut Baltimore’s lead to 28-23.

Akers, who has been skittish all season, actually missed his first attempt from 39 yards. But a running into the kicker penalty moved him five yards closer, and he made it from 34 yards out on his second try.

The Ravens have the lead, but the 49ers have controlled this game since the lights came back on. We’re heading toward what could be a thrilling fourth quarter.

    Alfred Morris is the only RB that matters in Maryland.

    Complete dive by Akers. Watch the replay, he flops before getting touched. Simms clueless too thinking it should be worse… shame the power had to come back on so forced to listen to him.
    But that should be been missed kick could come back to be the difference.
