Ravens kicker Justin Tucker wanted game-winner vs. 49ers to be longer

MVP contender Lamar Jackson threw for one touchdown and rushed for another in wet and windy conditions in Baltimore.

Justin Tucker also had a 30-yard field goal in the second-quarter for Baltimore.

The key play in the drive came following the two-minute warning, with the Niners having spent their final timeout in hopes of salvaging time for their offense to get a final shot. "And there's slightly more glory making a 50-yarder than 49". They're favored by just 2.5 points per BetMGM, Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins is notoriously spotty in night games (he's gone 7-13 in his career on that stage, and is 3-4 there since joining the Vikings) and laid an egg in this same venue in these same circumstances previous year, losing 21-7 to the Seahawks on Monday Night Football in early December. The 49ers had more yards and yards per play than the Ravens, the hottest team in the National Football League, and lost a road game on a clutch 49-yard field goal.

The Seahawks and San Francisco are tied for the NFC West lead at 10-2.

So chances are good that the Saints will be able to (temporarily) grab the top seed in the NFC playoffs picture after this game.

Caruana Galizia had written extensively about corruption in political and business circles in the EU's smallest state. Both men had been suing Caruana Galizia for libel over allegations she made about their business deals.

The Baltimore Ravens tied the game at seven later in the first quarter on a Lamar Jackson 20-yard touchdown pass to Mark Andrews.

The Bengals had ditched Dalton for newcomer Ryan Finley at quarterback in recent games but coach Zac Taylor started the 32-year-old as the side looked to avoid a 0-16 season.

On the flipside, while the 49er offense only eked out 17 points, QB Jimmy Garoppolo walked away with an efficient 15-21 on passing attempts for 165 yards and a touchdown.

Running back Raheem Mostert stood out for the 49ers this afternoon, finishing with 19 carries for 146 yards and a score. Both of these performances should be enough to push the Niners through the grind of the run-up to the playoffs, going forward, thanks to their stout defense.

"I was really proud of the team", Kyle Shanahan said of his 49ers. San Francisco's playoff push continues in the Big Easy, next Sunday morning, at 10 AM (Pacific Time).
