BALTIMORE — The Ravens' winning streak reached eight on Sunday, as the Ravens beat the NFC-leading 49ers 20-17 in a wild finish at M&T Bank Stadium.
Justin Tucker's 48-yard field goal clinched things.
Stock up: Justin Tucker
The NFL's best kicker did it again.
When the Ravens needed Tucker, he delivered with a 48 yard field goal to give the Ravens a 20-17 win.
In tough conditions, the kick wasn't a breeze for Tucker. But the Ravens made him the league's highest-paid kicker for a reason.
Stock up: Lamar Jackson’s legs
Lamar Jackson didn’t have the best day passing the ball, but the 49ers couldn’t figure out the run game as he kept them honest all afternoon.
He finished with 101 yards on 16 carries and a host of 49ers defenders left in his wake.
San Francisco had trouble defending the read option all game, as Jackson pulled option after option for big gains.
When the aeriel attack wasn’t working, he relied on the ground attack.
Stock down: Run Defense
For the first time in many weeks, the Ravens run defense wasn’t up to par.
The 49ers ran at will, led by Raheem Mostert, to the tune of 146 yards on the ground and routinely controlled the clock. As a team, they rushed for 174 yards.
The Ravens defense entered Sunday allowing just 87.7 rushing yards per game.
It’ll be back to the drawing board for the Ravens defense, which didn’t play well for the first time in weeks.
Stock down: Jaylon Ferguson
Ferguson, who has been improving rapidly since the start of the season, had a setback on Sunday.
He was sealed in on Mostert’s 40-yard touchdown run and had an offsides penalty on the last drive of the half for the 49ers, too.
There's still room to grow for the rookie from Louisiana Tech.
Stock up: Chuck Clark
Chuck Clark again had a quiet game, but a good one, as he forced a fumble on Jimmy Garoppolo in the first quarter, which led to a Ravens touchdown to open their scoring.
Clark had seven tackles, tied for a game-high, and played a solid role on the back-end for the entire afternoon. The Ravens used him as a linebacker in some situations, and were able to slide Brandon Carr back to safety.
Stock up: Mark Andrews
In addition to his touchdown celebration, Andrews had more reasons to celebrate.
He tied the Ravens’ record for touchdowns by a tight end with seven, previously held by Dennis Pitta and Todd Heap. His score also set the franchise mark for touchdowns in a single season (48).
Andrews finished with three catches for 50 yards and a score. While the passing attack wasn’t there for the Ravens, it wasn’t due to Andrews.
Stock down: Marcus Peters
Marcus Peters didn’t have his best day as a Raven.
On the first drive of the game, he was beaten for a jump ball by Deebo Samuel, who scored the first touchdown of the game on the 49ers' first drive.
Peters didn’t look good on Mostert’s 40-yard touchdown run in the second quarter, either, as his day was one to forget in Baltimore.
