Baltimore Ravens Win At Buzzer Against the San Francisco 49ers
It was a rain festival at M & T Bank Stadium on Sunday afternoon in Baltimore, Maryland between the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens. A lot of people thought this could potentially be a Super Bowl LIV preview in Miami, Florida on Sunday, February 2, 2020.
These two teams also met each other in Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans, Louisiana on February 3, 2013. Baltimore won that match up by a score of 34-31, but was today’s final?
With the game tied at 17 and with three seconds remaining, Justin Tucker drilled a 49-yard field goal as time expired and the Ravens took down San Francisco by a score of 20-17.
There was a ton of smash-mouth football being played in this game. Both of these teams played really hard throughout. There was a ton of more running than passing in this game.
Garoppolo completed 15-of-21 passes for 165 yards and one touchdown. He also rushed for five yards on three carries.
Samuel caught two passes for 41 yards receiving and a touchdown. He also rushed for 20 yards on one carry.

This was one of the most interesting games during the regular season. Everything slowed down in the second-half which was strange.
Robbie Gould made a 32-yard field goal for the 49ers in the third quarter to tie the game at 17 and the rest was history.
If the Seattle Seahawks (9-2) take down the Minnesota Vikings (8-3) on the road on Monday night, San Francisco will drop to the fifth seed in the NFC.
They will have big games moving forward.
Also, it would not be a surprise to see these two teams playing each other moving forward. It would be disappointing if it didn’t happen. We will see if they do, however.
One of those big games will be when the San Francisco 49ers (10-2) take on the New Orleans Saints (10-2) on the road.
As for the Baltimore Ravens (10-2), they will have a big game on the road next Sunday against the Buffalo Bills (8-3).
