Getty Quarterback Lamar Jackson #8 of the Baltimore Ravens celebrates a play during the game against the Los Angeles Rams at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on November 25, 2019 in Los Angeles, California.
That result has set up a blockbuster showdown between the Ravens and San Francisco 49ers (10-1) in Baltimore on Sunday. They are tied for second with 15 rushing touchdowns.
Here's some more background on the cross-conference opponents along with stats and advice on their Week 13 matchup.
Unlike most mobile quarterbacks, the Ravens' signal-caller has most of his runs coming from designed plays. Jackson may end up winning the league's "Most Valuable Player" award for his efforts this season, but if he does not, he's guaranteed to receive a unique award for his performance this year. Despite Jackson reiterating that he's NOT a running quarterback and he would rather look to pass, he's only had one 300-yard game for his career and has never completed more than 24 passes in a single game either. However, the lead over last week's match was -4¹ / ₂ for the Ravens and now stands -6 points on their 45-6 loss to the Rams at Monday Night Football, while everyone commits to the Baltimore train. Throw in last week's five sacks against the elusive Aaron Rodgers in a 37-8 shellacking, and that's 17 in the last four games alone. Rookie Kyler Murray has almost knocked off the Niners on two separate occasions, scrambling out of the pocket and evading the pass-rush. Their lone loss came against Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks, while they needed big offensive games to narrowly overcome Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals twice in the last four weeks. Coleman and Mostert each scored touchdowns against the Packers, while Breida returned to practice this week after being sidelined for two games with an injury.
The Ravens rank first in the National Football League in total rushes (407), rushing yards (2,316), rushing yards per game (210.5) and 17 rushing touchdowns.
