Ravens are mostly healthy as showdown with 49ers approaches

The Game of the Year (so far) happens on Sunday in Baltimore, with the 49ers visiting the Ravens. And while the road team has plenty of injuries issues, the home team is mostly healthy following a Monday night romp over the Rams.

Only two Ravens missed Wednesday’s practice for injury reasons: guard Bradley Bozeman (ankle) and defensive tackle Domata Peko (knee). Running back Mark Ingram, who continues to run with an anger and a passion that reflects a man far young than one who turns 30 next month, got the day off for rest purposes.

Limited in practice were linebacker Matthew Judon (ankle; pictured), tight end Nick Boyle (ankle), and defensive tackle Michael Pierce (ankle).

The last time the Ravens hosted the 49ers in the regular season, John and Jim Harbaugh squared off for the first time, on Thanksgiving night. This time around, Baltimore has a 9-2 record and the 49ers are 10-1 — the first 10-1 underdogs in 12 years.

  1. I don’t trust Kyle Shanahan against an experienced coach like Harbaugh. Kyle only dominates the likes of Freddie Kitchens and Matt LaFleur.

  2. This game is different than the last meeting, because it was a defensive struggle and Alex Smith was the quarterback. ALex Smith would soon be traded away to Kansas City and Kap would take over as 49er quarterback. Jimmy G. is a lot better than Alex Smith.

  3. Niners won’t roll over and let the Ravens do what they did to Seattle. Especially with Kittle and Sanders healthy. Score will be lower than what people are thinking.

  4. West Coast team traveling east for a 1pm game? Rarely ends well, jetlag is real. Ravens win easily. Jimmy G is not anywhere near Jackson’s level on his best day.

  5. Ravens will be one and done come playoff time. They are the most over hyped team I’ve ever seen. Right there with the hype that surrounded the Browns before the season even started. Oh just look at what the Ravens are doing with their easy peasy schedule. They’ve played 2 tough teams all year let’s see what happens come playoff time…1 and done

  6. Our defense struggled against Wilson and Murray. Can’t imagine them being much better against Jackson. Jimmy needs to have a big game for us to win. Should be a fun game, pretty equal teams. Baltimore’s special teams gives them the edge. 27-24

    Niners are 3-0 this year in the Eastern time zone: at Tampa, at Cincinnati, at Washington. Not pretty, but 3-0. Don’t know how this one will work out, Ravens are very good. But Niners normally are already in town a few days before game day to get acclimated.

  8. Man, what a failure if the Ravens don’t win it all eh? Best team by far,hands down, no question, no other team has a chance.

  9. Weather will be chilly and rain. Rain favors the Ravens run game. Good luck to the defense trying to lay a finger on Lamar on a wet field. This season the ravens stadium has transformed back into the vintage 2006 level of crowd noise. It is going to very loud all game long. I’d be shocked if the Ravens lose.
    Ravens 31
    49ers 17

  10. A couple of weeks ago the NFL did the right thing, moving the Seahawks vs Eagles out of the Sunday night slot and pushing Green Bay vs SF into the prime Sunday night game. Even as a ‘Hawk fan, I saw why. So… what the heck is the NFL doing putting what could be the best game of the year in the NFL on at 1pm Sunday instead of, at least, moving them to 4pm? It has nothing to do with ‘west coast teams going east’ — just what the fans would prefer the later start time.

  11. I’ll be at that game with my son (he’s a Raven fan, I’m a Niner fan). I love my Niners, but mobile fast QB’s are our cryptonite. Ravens by 3. We’ll beat NO and Seattle to finish out.

  12. Meanwhile the Rams have upped the reward they are offering for anyone who provides the license number of the truck that ran them over.

    Because CBS has the double header that day. And New England has the NBC game.

  14. …feeling like this is where the 9ers lose three of their next 5, starting Sunday against the Ravens. So sad to realize that even with such a great season record of 12-4, it’ll only get them 2nd place in the NFCW.
