Jackson, Ravens beat 49ers 20-17 to extend win streak to 8

The Ravens struggled offensively, too, as they managed just three second half points - Tucker's last-second field goal. "I was hot. We didn't score". He can win a game and set some records with both. We came up a little bit short there at the end. They gave up a passer rating of just 86.3. "Hopefully we can earn an opportunity to maybe get a chance to play them some other time again".

Ravens safety Earl Thomas stoked the fires early on in the week when he questioned whether or not the 49ers could be in the Super Bowl against the Ravens.

The Titans (7-5) won for the fifth time in six games, avenging a September home loss to the Colts (6-6), and moved within a half-game of Houston for first place in the AFC South.

After the victory, Baltimore offered a similar message as the Niners, sounding like a team that had just been in a serious battle and anticipating that another one could await. "That was a team that was looking to seal up the NFC West". "We have some things to work on and keep getting better".


Sherman said he doesn't believe in measuring-stick games, but this was certainly one and future opponents of both teams won't take any comfort in what they saw.

The 49ers' defense will face their biggest test of the season when they take on quarterback Lamar Jackson and the red-hot Baltimore Ravens on Sunday (10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET, FOX, DirecTV) in a Week 13 game. "It's not like they were beating us down".

For most of the season, outside observers have questioned the Niners' ability to hang with some of the league's top teams.

During Sunday's loss, the 49ers were held to 17-or-fewer points for just the second time this season.


"You feel the urgency, you feel the intensity, the energy of the game and it feels like a fight", fullback Kyle Juszczyk said. "You have to protect the football, score points when you can and play as a team".

"Our record speaks for it".

The 49ers' defense posted its most impressive performance of the season during their 37-8 dismantling of the Green Bay Packers. These two teams played a tight and compelling game in hard conditions Sunday. The Miami Dolphins were 0-7 before beating NY 26-18 on November 3.

When that game kicks off, the Niners will become the first team in the Super Bowl era to play three consecutive games against teams with an.800 or better winning percentage this late in the season, according to ESPN Stats & Information. Seattle meets Minnesota on Monday Night Football with a chance to stake its claim. He played a contained, controlled game, exactly what was needed to get off a wet field with a win. This was a great game, though. They make clutch throws for first downs, get tough extra inches on quarterback sneaks and generally seem to will their teams to extend drives. Someone in the stairwell breathed a sigh of relief and said he hoped the Ravens didn't see the 49ers again. Jaquiski Tartt left the game with a rib injury, but his backup, Marcell Harris, stripped the ball from Jackson and recovered it. They are in the middle of a daunting stretch of games - they are staying in Florida this week before their game against New Orleans - and, despite the outcome, the 49ers had displayed no glaring deficiencies.
