Titans vs. Ravens live stream: How to watch NFL playoff game online, on TV

Can Lamar Jackson carry the Baltimore Ravens (14-2) over the Tennessee Titans (10-7)? Probably.

The Ravens will play for the first time in nearly two weeks as they host the AFC divisional-round game against the Titans -- and they already have a lot working for them.

Baltimore is currently riding a 12-game winning streak, which is a franchise-best and they are heavily favored to win the game which is what you get when you have a phenomenal passing game like the one they possess. 

The Titans have a decent defense, but Jackson broke Michael Vick's single-season quarterback rushing record and led the league with 36 touchdown passes.

Good luck to the Titans.

Jimmy Garoppolo's stats vs. playoff teams show he's ready for Vikings

Jimmy Garoppolo's stats vs. playoff teams show he's ready for Vikings

Jimmy Garoppolo answered plenty of questions this season. Coming off a torn ACL, he led the 49ers to an NFC West title and the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs. He also produced one of the best statistical seasons ever for a QB in franchise history. 

The playoffs are a whole different ballgame, though. 

Garoppolo is a two-time Super Bowl champion, but he won those rings as Tom Brady's backup with the New England Patriots. The 49ers QB hasn't taken one snap in the playoffs over his six-year career. That will change Saturday when San Francisco faces the Minnesota Vikings at Levi's Stadium in the divisional round. 

There are plenty of reasons to believe in Garoppolo as he makes his playoff debut -- just look at his numbers against teams that made it to the playoffs this season. As Niners Nation's Rob Lowder points out, Jimmy G has been pretty, pretty good against four teams that made it to the postseason. 

Garoppolo nearly was flawless in the 49ers' Week 17 win over the Seahawks, to win the division. He didn't throw a touchdown -- or an interception for that matter -- but he did complete 18 of 22 pass attempts for 285 yards. His passer rating was 118.8.

The Vikings certainly will be a tough task to conquer as well. Minnesota stymied Drew Brees last week, intercepting the future Hall of Famer and recovered a key fumble they forced against the 13-time Pro Bowler. 

In the 49ers' five games against playoff teams this season, they went 3-2. But their two losses -- Week 10 against the Seahawks and Week 13 at Baltimore -- both ended on last-second field goals. 

Coach Kyle Shanahan knows firsthand that the playoffs have a different feel to them. He also believes the 49ers' handful of close games this season will pay dividends for Garoppolo and the rest of the squad.

“I feel like last week was a playoff game,” Shanahan said Tuesday. “That was pretty intense, or whenever we played Seattle. I think he has shown that he can handle himself with poise." 

When the going got tough in the regular season, Garoppolo was at his best. The 49ers believe he can do the same Saturday, and the QB has the numbers to back up those feelings.

NFL playoff odds: Here's where 49ers stand among Super Bowl contenders

The playoff bye week is over. It's time for the 49ers to go back to work.

While Jimmy Garoppolo, George Kittle and the 13-3 Niners were resting and waiting, two teams with legitimate Super Bowl hopes bit the dust.

Tom Brady and the New England Patriots' patchwork offense fell flat in a loss to the Tennessee Titans. Meanwhile down in New Orleans, Sean Payton forgot how to use his timeouts, costing the Saints 40 crucial seconds and the two-minute stoppage in an overtime loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

With the Patriots and Saints one and done, the 49ers' odds of advancing to Miami and claiming the Lombardi Trophy have greatly improved.

Per FiveThirtyEight, the 49ers have the third-best odds to win the Super Bowl at 14 percent. The 49ers entered the playoffs with the third-best chances, but the teams with the fourth, fifth and sixth-best chances (Saints, Patriots, Philadelphia Eagles) all lost in the wild-card round. The Baltimore Ravens (48 percent) and the Kansas City Chiefs (17 percent) have the best data odds, per FiveThirtyEight.

From a betting perspective, Caesar's Palace has the 49ers' odds to win the Super Bowl at plus-300, also the third-best odds.

The 49ers will face a tough test in the divisional-round when the Vikings visit Levi's Stadium. Led by a solid rushing attack and tough front seven, the Vikings have a recipe to win games in the playoffs.

But if the 49ers come out and punch them in the mouth Saturday, the wheels could come off the purple wagon in a hurry.
