      Honestly I'm a 49er fan but to be honest are you guys impressed by the whole ravens team or just Lamar Jackson because that's what it sounds like not gonna lie good game but dam if it wasn't for Lamars running game I dont know how it would have ended but I'm not gonna say "but what if" give the whole team credit

                  Those three plays the Patriots ran in the SB last year -- that Dan Orlovsky was talking about is called Hoss Y Juke... the Patriots ran in with different looks but similar concept on three consecutive plays.

                                                                                      Jackson was incredible. We expected him to be incredible though. But could the 49ers defense contain him? They limit him to just _two_ TDs... to just 20 Points. Though I am more impressed with the Ravens as a team, I think my opinion about the 49ers (and especially their defense come playoff time) is what impressed me more about _THIS_ particular game.
