When these two heavyweights meet, fans are ready for a Christmas present

Dec 25, 2023 #49ers vs Ravens

Week 16 features a possible Super Bowl LVIII matchup when the San Francisco 49ers host the Baltimore Ravens.

The 49ers and Ravens lead the NFC and AFC, respectively, and appear in line to secure a first-round bye during the 2023 NFL season.

San Francisco has been on a tear since the bye week, as it has won six straight games and can solidify its position as Super Bowl favorites with a win over a Baltimore team that can match it in terms of talent.

The 49ers have an embarrassment of riches on the offensive side of the ball as they have explosive weapons in Christian McCaffrey, Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk, and George Kittle.

All of this has been led by Brock Purdy, a legitimate MVP candidate who is playing his best football from the quarterback position.

Michael Irvin discussed key parts of the Ravens’ game, and his biggest takeaway was that their defense needs to keep the pressure on Purdy through NFL GameDay.

“You have to go to Brock Purdy,” Irwin said.

Having a quarterback is always a top priority for opposing defenses, but it’s especially important when trying to defend San Francisco.

However, putting pressure on Purdy is easier said than done, as coach Kyle Shanahan does a great job protecting the quarterback in the run game.

But Baltimore has the manpower to wreak havoc, and John Harbaugh certainly has some tricks up his sleeve to make Purdy’s life as difficult as possible.
