Ravens troll Nick Bosa in response to Deebo Samuel mocking Lamar Jackson

Ravens troll Nick Bosa in response to Deebo Samuel mocking Lamar Jackson

Sunday's game between the 49ers and Ravens very well could be a Super Bowl preview, and don't think the two teams know it.

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.

Both teams entered the game looking to make a statement, and that extended to the touchdown celebrations. After Jimmy Garoppolo hit Deebo Samuel for a 33-yard touchdown on fourth-and-2 in the first quarter, the rookie receiver mocked the dance Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson busted out last week during Baltimore's win over the Rams.

Not to be outdone, the Ravens responded back in the great Sunday troll-off.

When Jackson hit tight end Mark Andrews to tie the game at seven, the Ravens took to the end zone and trolled 49ers rookie Nick Bosa's flag-planting celebration from the 49ers' win over the Browns.

Andrews, who played tight end at Oklahoma with Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield, no doubt had this one planned for quite some time. When Mayfield, Andrews and Oklahoma beat Bosa and Ohio State in Columbus, Ohio, Mayfield planted the Sooner flag in the turf, leading to Bosa's long-plotted revenge which he enacted while tormenting Mayfield during Week 4. 

The Buckeyes-Sooners rivalry runs deep.

After the Ravens 20-17 win, Andrews explained he wanted to give Bosa a little taste of his own medicine.

Expect Bosa to have something for the Ravens if the two teams meet again in Miami in February.

49ers' Tevin Coleman's goes to walk-through, looks to play in Super Bowl

49ers' Tevin Coleman's goes to walk-through, looks to play in Super Bowl

SANTA CLARA -- Running back Tevin Coleman took part in the 49ers' walk through on Friday but did not practice.

Coach Kyle Shanahan said the results of Coleman's MRI examination earlier this week was "positive," and the 49ers appear confident Tevin Coleman will be available when the club takes the field for Super Bowl LIV.

However, Coleman was still unable to practice on Friday, just five days after sustaining a dislocated right shoulder in the 49ers’ victory over the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game.

Coleman started 11 of the 14 regular-season games in which he appeared. On the season, Coleman gained 544 yards and six touchdowns with a 4.0 average. He caught 21 passes for 180 yards and one touchdown.

He Coleman played a huge role in the 49ers’ 27-10 win over the Minnesota Vikings in the divisional round of the NFC playoffs with 105 yards rushing and two touchdowns on 22 attempts.

Coleman played just eight snaps against the Packers on Sunday. He carried six times for 21 yards before leaving with the shoulder injury when he reached out to brace his fall upon being tripped up on a second-quarter running play.

NFL rumors: 49ers' Super Bowl 54 parade will take place in San Francisco

NFL rumors: 49ers' Super Bowl 54 parade will take place in San Francisco

If the confetti falls on the 49ers in Miami, there will be a party shortly thereafter in the Bay Area.

Some have wondered where the 49ers would hold their championship parade should they defeat the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LIV. Would it be in San Francisco? What about Santa Clara where the 49ers currently play their home games?

Well, the answer apparently is San Francisco, The San Francisco Chronicle's Scott Ostler.

“Well, I’m not inside of the 49ers’ chambers, but the time that I was near the doorway, I heard positive discussions, in which I am proud to say that (a parade) will be right here in our town. The only question is, how in the hell do we pay for it?” former San Francisco mayor Willie Brown, who has an unofficial role in the parade planning, told Ostler.

The championship parade would run down Market Street, a source told Ostler.

As for Santa Clara, Brown brushed that idea off.

“And besides that,” Brown said, “there’s no way you can have a parade in Santa Clara. What do they have, one shopping mall?”

The 49ers have a tall task in front of them. Reigning NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes has been nearly unstoppable when healthy this season and will present a unique challenge to a 49ers defense that has tormented a majority of the quarterbacks they have faced this season. The 49ers have the defensive personnel to give Mahomes fits, but the Chiefs' next-level speed will be something the Niners haven't faced this season.

It will be strength on strength in Miami, with a parade (perhaps) in The City awaiting the Niners should they take care of business.
