Ravens win eighth in a row with last-play field goal to beat 49ers

Getty Images

There is no arguing the best team in the NFL right now.

It’s the Ravens.

Baltimore kicked a 49-yard field goal with no time left to beat the 49ers 20-17 in a battle of NFL heavyweights.

It was the eighth consecutive victory for the Ravens (10-2). The 49ers Rams, Texans, Patriots and Seahawks are among the Ravens’ victims since back-to-back losses to the Chiefs and Browns.

The 49ers fell to 10-2, only a half-game ahead of the Seahawks. Seattle (9-2) plays the Vikings on Monday night and already holds a victory over San Francisco.

Played in a rainstorm, the Ravens led 17-14 at halftime. The 49ers tied it on a 32-yard Robbie Gould field goal with 3:37 remaining in the third quarter. That was the only second half scoring until Justin Tucker‘s game-winner.

Mr. Clutch proved Mr. Clutch yet again on a no-doubt kick after the Ravens drove to the 49ers 31-yard line on a 12-play, 34-yard drive that ran down the clock.

Lamar Jackson rushed for 101 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries and passed for 105 yards and a touchdown. Mark Andrews caught three passes for 50 yards and a touchdown.

49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo passed for 165 yards and a touchdown, and running back Raheem Mostert ran for 146 yards and a touchdown.

  1. 36 Hours from now the Seahawks will be all alone in 1st place in the NFC West and 49ers will be playing for the wild card.

    Have a nice week, 49ers fans.

  2. Good game Ravens. I just wish we would have kept running Mostert. He was killing them.

    49ers!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Clara fans should be proud of their run as division leaders. Hope all raise a glass tomorrow night and declare themselves the best darn 2nd place team in the league

  4. 7 nation army came out 16 years ago, just sayin.

    ————————

    Sour grapes are much older

  5. The tipped pass on 4th and 1 was horrible play call. Mostert had the defense tired. Kyle should have ran it. That essentially handed them the game.

    Charles Davis and Kevin Burkhardt are annoying

    Good Game Ravens fan

  6. Stop pretending that Lame is a QB – he demonstrated today he is a running back and every QB rule that protects him should be removed. End the Lame Loophole – rush for more than six attempts and you should be disqualified from the game. End this charade. There is no pretense in Baltimore to not field a QB in the game.

    And waited all morning long so you could be among the first to post. On ANOTHER 49ers game thread. Who’s obsessed with whom?

    Last I checked, Seattle hasn’t beaten Minnesota yet.

    It must really stink to be so insecure, King of the One Year Dynasty.

  9. So I guess it’s the NFL’s to protect Jackson at all costs. Two horrendous roughing the passer calls, simply horrendous.

  10. 49ers lost the game but they did show how to control Lame during the second half – bring the pocket up around lame to keep him from getting outside. Once Lame is surrounded, he can’t hurt you – and he is not even an average passer.

  11. Ravens won by phantom roughing the passer calls all day. Jimmy G should of recieved a RP the 2nd play of the game. Ravens won by luck and they were exposed today. They can’t stop the option run, and on a dry field Bosa and company get 4 sacks.

  12. Great game. 49ers D is legit Mostet ran like a beast. My Ravens took a couple chances and the 49ers couldn’t capitalize. This game will make both teams better.

  13. Great game Ravens! I’ll still take SF to win round two if there is one, but you guys are (obviously) legit and deserved the win today.

  14. Great game, great win by Ravens.
    If you think Lamar can throw, this was yet another example showing how inaccurate he is. 100 yards passing is not MVP-worthy and he can’t throw the ball more than 7 yards downfield. Lamar is a phenomenal running back playing QB with a dominant O line. He is a perfect running back/QB for this system but at some point we need to stop talking about him as a QB.
    By the way, until someone stops the Ravens, then I wouldn’t take any offense at this characterization. It’s true, and it’s a winning system. But in bad weather you do not want Lamar to have to throw the ball. It’s pretty ugly.

  15. Ruh Roh…

    If Seattle wins at home tomorrow on MNF Seattle will be in first place and have beaten the niners…

    All this yapping about the niners…poof.

    Nobody is talking about the Seahawks..,that’s how they like it.

  16. Terrible game management from Kyle Shanahan. Didn’t use his timeouts properly before halftime and the missed FG. Then wasted all of his timeouts second half. Also Jimmy G with another turnover deep in his own territory which led to points. Defense played good enough to win.

  17. SF good, just not quite enough. Gave Ravens some things to work on especially if they meet again. No one would want to face them as a wild card.

    Ravens were a ragged at times but showed they can still win when a little off. Keeping the pressure on NE for home field advantage.

  18. “Clara fans should be proud of their run as division leaders. Hope all raise a glass tomorrow night and declare themselves the best darn 2nd place team in the league”

    You do realize we play again right? Keep that same energy when you see us at full strength. Im trying to figure out where all these Seabuzzard fans are at when they stink. You guys have Seabuzzard internet service. It only works when the team is winning. We’ll see whos logging out at the end of the season.

  19. The mvp for the ravens is the refs. Two roughing the passer on 3rd and long That led to 10points in the first half when it should’ve been a punt both times. The nfl and media darling was protected and helped them keep drives alive that were getting stopped. Bs penalties like that is the best way to beat a great defense.
    Congrats.

    Lamar threw 5 TD Passes last week. He plays a great defense this week in the driving rain and now he’s back to being a running back? Here’s some advice; sit back and enjoy the show. 10-2.

    2 8 Rate This


    Hey loser, the fact that you’ve only watched a couple games involving the Ravens and look at total yards passing as a much more important stat than, say, TDs, rushing TDs and Ws doesn’t mean you’ve got some great insight that we’ll all someday realize. It just means that you thought the 49ers were the best team in football, and it’s that’s just indisputably proven to be incorrect. Like the rest of your assessments here today. Go look up passing rating, TDs etc. etc. and let me know how Jimmy compares.

  23. LOL so much hatred for Lamar. Yeah he missed a lot of throws but he made the plays he needed to in order to win.

    The Nimers gashed the ravens defense, IN THE FIRST HALF. the Niners did little to nothing in the second and that’s why they lost. I’d be way more concerned about your qb than ours if I were a niners fan.

  24. Said it before, Kyle Shanahan struggles against experienced winning coaches like Harbaugh. He only dominates the likes of Freddie Kitchens and Matt LaFleur. It will be the same if the 49ers make it to the SB and face Belichick.

    ___________________________

    Newsflash: No one wants to throw the ball in weather like that. Hence why both teams kept running the ball. You’ll keep trying to find things wrong with Lamar and he’ll keep stacking wins.

  26. Baltimore is quickly turning into Lambeau in terms of home-cooking refs. The first roughing the passer call was borderline at best but the second one was a joke– he hit Lamar’s quadricep.
    The offensive holding is absurd. Every time you get the slo-mo of Lamar running, just watch the egregious holding of the Ravens line… not a single hold was called?
    on the first roughing the passer, the Ravens didn’t get the snap off in time. Should have been delay of game. Indisputable.
    Now that the NFL has annointed Lamar as MVP and Thomas has declared victory in the Super Bowl, it’s going to be hard to get any calls in Baltimore.

  27. Great game Ravens. I’m proud of how the Niners played and hope this is indeed a Super Bowl preview. I don’t agree Shanahan’s call to pass on a 4th & 1 that late in the game (he seems to have a preference for it) with the run game that effective.

    In any event 10-2 is a far cry from where we were last year and just the fact we’re playoff bound should have the fan base confident with our teams direction.

    GO NINERS!!!!!

  28. Tony Gonzalez just called out the NFL and said what many are saying: Lamar should be treated as a runner, not a QB, and he’s getting all kinds of calls as a result any time a defender hits him. Just as when the refs tried to call a “late hit” on Lamar when the Niners DB made contact 2 yards inside the field and the momentum carried them out of bounds.
    Tony is about as unbiased and neutral an analyst as you can find, and he hit the nail on the head: Lamar is a runner, not a QB.

    8 straight winning seasons, 7 playoff appearances, 2 Super Bowls and 1 Lombardi since we drafted Russell Wilson. When exactly was the last time the Seahawks “stunk?”

    You’re playing for the Wild Card now 49ers fans, and your QB will never be good enough to win a Super Bowl.

    Keep crying – dude has posted a perfect QBR twice this season. Ravens are 10-2, they’re not worried about what fools like you think.

  31. It was a matter of time before a team took advantage of these crazy qb protection rules with a true running QB. Kudos to the ravens and Harbaugh for making a bold move That being said as a neutral fan I thought the refs did a decent job, good move picking up that flag on the sideline as contact was initiated inbounds. Those roughing the passer calls on Jackson though, I thought they would be called everytime on traditional passers like Brady or Rodgers, so I agree with those calls. Refs gotta be consistent on those, and I thought they were

    *******************
    Newsflash, it isn’t like he is the only QB to ever play in bad weather. Try playing in one of the northern tier cities with outdoor stadiums.
    The weather is NOT an excuse.

  33. The road to the SB will still go through NE. NE is 10-4 vs Baltimore. 7-2 in NE and 3-2 in Baltimore. Gimmicks only work against a team like the Pats one time.

  34. To the SF fans who are whining about the refs and Lamar etc. Your team played a great game. They lost on a last second FG to the most clutch kicker in the game. They have nothing to be ashamed of. Don’t ruin it by being sore losers. Lamar and JimmyG had similar statistics. Lamar is leading the NFL in TD passes so this nonsense about him not being a QB is not only not true, but honestly at this point it is stupid.

    To the Ravens – tough game. Great win. We need these kind of wins just like we need the blowouts. The playoffs won’t be blowout games. Next game up. Now for some nitroglycerin for the chest pain.

    You realize that is illegal right? Below the waist is a penalty while in the pocket. Try learning football instead of trolling Ravens threads.

    you might wanna tap your breaks on that – Belichick is 3-6 in the playoffs against teams who have beat the Pats in the regular season

  37. Props to both teams. Great football in classic December East Coast weather. Niners will be loaded for bear; I’m happy the Saints had three extra days to prepare. Should be another classic in the Dome

  38. My son is 8 and has never seen the Seahawks stink.

    Coincidentally, Russell Wilson just became the ONLY QB EVER to have winning records in each of his first 8 seasons…

    ____________________________________________

    You are sad, like literally. You must have a miserable life. If 14/23 105yds 1TD 0Int is inaccurate, I’ll take it. In horrible weather at that with the wind blowing 15 to 20mph all game. He absolutely struggled in this weather. Glad he’s fast and athletic enough to run for 101 yds on 16 carries 1TD smh. Aaron Rodgers went 20/33 104yds 1TD 0Int against this D, guess he’s inaccurate too huh. Mayfield went 8/22 100yds 0TD 2Ints with better weapons in good weather. Guess he doesn’t belong in the league. How about Lamar is a 22 year old 2nd yr QB that played a GREAT D in horrible weather who still found a way to help his team win. Notice the 6+ minute drive he ushered in the 4th Qtr that didn’t allow the 49ers to get the ball back and setup the game winning field goal.
    And did you seriously say the Refs are protecting Lamar? Do you even know how many roughing the passer and late hit calls Lamar has got this year? He got 2 LEGITIMATE roughing the passer calls today. One was a blow to the head in the pocket, the other some are considering dirty in that a DLineman that wasn’t blocked at all and just dove at his legs after he had let go of the ball. The one you’re whining about, the late hit out of bounds, was picked up so what’s the problem? And Tony Gonzalez is an analyst that’s been critical of Lamar all year who has an opinion. Great for him. If you want to blame protections on QBs, go blame Manning, Brady, Rodgers, and Brees. When Lamar’s in the pocket he should be protected just like every other QB in this league. When he’s running, he should get the same protections that RBs get, which is you can’t lead with your helmet, and you can’t hit him late if he’s running out of bounds. Maybe you should write to the league to change the rules since you know, we’ve got a QB that’s super athletic now and the rules should change to help stop him. Grow up

  40. 7 Nation Army did come out a long time ago, and it is VERY obnoxious… even for a lot of Ravens fans.

    Mostert was killing them, but it seemed more like the Ravens just weren’t in this game mentally… especially Marcus Peters. He just didn’t seem interested in tackling at all. The receivers were half-running routes and not interested in going for anything even close to a contested catch(Except Andrews). Maybe it was the weather, but I don’t think it was a weakness being exposed as far as defensive scheme. They simply weren’t playing very well. Maybe it was the short week… but with the team widely regarded as your biggest challenge so far and the rest of the season… I think that’s all the motivation you need.

  41. A guy with average to mediocre passing skills benefits greatly by having the designated thrower of the team as his title so he can run effectively every week. Him being able to hold ball in double threat and pick and chose when he runs all while being given protections of the QB is obviously a massive advantage and is the big reason he is highly effective. Enjoy it Ravens fans, because this will not sustain longer than this season max.

  42. Once again the niner D keeps them in the game, but their weak link, JG….came through for the loss once again when playing a comparable D. Niners are a QB away from going deep in the playoffs and contending for a title. Not going to happy with Jimmy. Even Dilfer didn’t make so many mistakes….he let his D do the heavy lifting and managed the games.

  43. Great game by the Ravens who are playing the best football in the league. Niners made a few too many mistakes to win but kept it surprisingly close. I’m hoping for a playoff rematch and see what Kyle can cook up next time.

  44. There are 31 garbage organizations in football. Then there are the Baltimore Ravens. The most feared organization in football since its inception. 3 superbowl wins including this year done the right way. The true GOAT, Ray Lewis played here. Brady? He’s laughable. A system QB who is lucky to have been given all of the greatest audio and video advantages to cheat with during a game.

    Jimmy G is an absolute bum and no one on that niners defense can hold the jock of Marcus Peters and Earl Thomas. Facts. Going to repeat next year too. We already won!

  45. To the 49er fans, hell of a game! Your team is legit. I’ve said all year that the teams that can give the Ravens’ offense fits, are teams that naturally play zone so that all eyes are on Lamar, and can blow up or at least challenge the Ravens Oline at the point of attack with their front 4. Everyone’s talking about teams don’t want to see the Ravens, but they should add the 49ers to this list as well. Any D that can hold Aaron Rodgers to 100 yds passing is legit. Good game.

  46. Great game. That loss is on Kyle though. Questionable game management. Defense played well enough to win. Offense needed to step it up. You had to know Lamar was good for at least 21pts. Tough one to swallow. Lamar is MVP. Can’t be stopped

    As a Ravens fan, come on man. Trolling isn’t necessary. The only fans in football right now that can boast are the Patriot fans. Nothing’s guaranteed in this league. Stay humble because you never know when the ride will come to an end. There are many on that 49ers D that can more than hold the jocks of Peters and Thomas. Give respect where it’s due. I guarantee you weren’t watching this game with much confidence. I know I wasn’t

    Well, winning one is better than winning none. The Niners dynasty won’t return anytime soon. Yeah, I know. You had one. Honestly, that’s great. I liked a lot of the players from that era. From Montana to Young, to Lott. But, that time is long gone, and a bygone era without the rules/replay, etc. of today. Lott would have missed many games. (He’s one of my favorite defenders).

    As a Seahawks fan, good luck to the Niners

    However, here’s hoping they lose the top seed in the division! Oh, by the way. The man you hated for so long, most of you LOVE! You know who I’m speaking of. Strange how that works.

    All that said, it’s not out of the realm of possibility that the Niners ‘could’ be a wild card team now. The coming weeks will determine that.

    Have a nice Sunday evening all!

  50. Jackson and the Ravens won by luck and pathetic roughing the runner calls. Seattle fans think they will beat the 49ers for the division, which is laughable. Good luck Seattle you got lucky beating us the first time. Your going to lose tomorrow night and be exposed as the pretenders you have been all year.

    You are right. The game has to be outside on a cold, windy, rainy day for a team to have a chance at beating the Ravens. Start doing your rain dance now Ty.

  52. Ravens are a good team and the 49ers are as well. Seahawk fans are setting themselves up for a lesson in Karma. 49ers at full strength are better than the Seahawks and I can’t wait for that Dec matchup, so we can shut the trolls from Seattle up for good.
