PHOTOS: 2014 Preseason Week 1 -- Ravens vs. 49ers
John and Jim Harbaugh square off again in Baltimore after facing each other in 2013 for a Super Bowl championship.
More Gore in store for 49ers?
49ers running back Frank Gore takes the field on Thursday in Baltimore before his team's matchup against the Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium.
Forsett and the Franchise Man
Ravens running back Justin Forsett chats with 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick before the two teams squared off on Thursday.
Jacoby Jones back at it in 2014
Baltimore wide receiver Jacoby Jones is back with the Ravens in 2014. He takes the field for the first time in the preseason Thursday night.
High five for Big Steve
New Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith is looking to bring an extra dimension to Baltimore's offense in 2014. And that's worth a high five.
Offense in action
Baltimore's first unit didn't see much playing time on Thursday, but suited up for the first few drives -- including running back Ray Rice.
No helmet, no touchdown
Ray Rice looked to be on his way to a touchdown, but his helmet became dislodged by a defender and he was stopped short of the goal line.
Flacco enjoys short night of work
Joe Flacco didn't play much in his team's preseason opener, but was solid in that short time: 4-of-5 passing, 52 yards.
Second-string sack monster
Baltimore's Josh Byrnes hits San Francisco backup QB Blaine Gabbert in the first half of Thursday's game at M&T Bank Stadium.
Bernard Pierce rolling downhill
With the goal line in sight, Bernard Pierce powered his way through for a touchdown on Thursday to give Baltimore an early lead.
Baltimore is expecting big things from former Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley. He made his presence felt on Thursday against the 49ers.
Joe Cool under center
Joe Flacco steps under center on Thursday against San Francisco at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.
Tyrod Time takes over
In relief of Joe Flacco, backup QB Tyrod Taylor brought his much more fleet-footed attack under center for the Ravens. He began his first drive with a nice scramble for a first down.
We're not sure what John Harbaugh is yelling about, but it was probably something legitimate with his team trailing for almost the entirety of Thursday night's preseason game.
