Game Day: Baltimore Ravens at San Francisco 49ers

Oct 18, 2015 at 12:00 AM--


Today, the San Francisco 49ers (1-4) will host the Baltimore Ravens (1-4) at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

The Ravens are coming off of a 33-30 defeat against the Cleveland Browns. The 49ers are coming off of a 30-27 defeat against the New York Giants.


It has been 32 months since the 49ers and Ravens faced each other in Super Bowl XLVII. Much has changed for both teams. The Ravens' season has been plagued by injuries while a turmoil-filled offseason devastated the 49ers.

Only six current 49ers players started in that game. Two 49ers, WR Anquan Boldin and WR Torrey Smith, were with the Ravens at the time and the entire 49ers coaching staff is different. This marks the sixth overall meeting between the two clubs with San Francisco hosting Baltimore for the first time since 2007.

During the team's loss to the Giants, the 49ers rushed for 124 yards on 27 attempts (4.6 average). RB Carlos Hyde finished with 21 carries for 93 yards (4.4 average) and registered his third touchdown of the season.


Boldin registered eight receptions for 107 yards and one touchdown. It was his 37th career game with 100-or-more receiving yards. TE Garrett Celek registered his first career touchdown reception on a five-yard pass from QB Colin Kaepernick in the fourth quarter. The defense was highlighted by CB Tramaine Brock, who intercepted Giants QB Eli Manning in the end zone for his second interception of the season and ninth of his career.

"We're going to go out to San Francisco. It's going to be something that's going to be tough and challenging. It's a good football team. They have a lot of good players. We know a lot of those guys personally. We practiced against them last year. We know the team well. We have to go find a way to play our best and win the game, and that's all we need to be thinking about right now, and that's all we'll be focusing on." – Ravens head coach John Harbaugh

Both Boldin and Torrey Smith will be facing their old team for the first time during the regular season. Smith signed with the 49ers during the offseason. It is a team that knows him well and a team he knows well. He practiced against Ravens CB Jimmy Smith and will now be pitted against him in a game.

"I know Torrey so well. We're like brothers. I know his moves, he knows my moves. So, it's going to be fun out there. I'm pretty sure we're going to get out there and have some plays where we're actually just laughing at each other at the end. But, I think it's going to be a great matchup." – Ravens CB Jimmy Smith.

This is the first of two home games within 5 days for the 49ers. Following their matchup with the Ravens, the 49ers will have to begin preparing for a Thursday night game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Conflicting reports on Robert Saleh's interview with Lions, with one suggesting 49ers DC 'did not do very well'

By David Bonilla
Jan 9, 2021

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan has expressed confidence that his defensive coordinator, Robert Saleh, would do well in any head-coaching job interview. Saleh interviewed with the Detroit Lions on Thursday, a job for which many consider him to be the favorite. One NFL insider suggests that particular interview may not have gone as well as Shanahan might expect or Saleh might have hoped. "Saleh did not do very well in the Detroit interview, I was told. And is not a shoo-in to get the job," Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle said during a radio interview with SportsTalk 790's Adam Clanton and Adam Wexler (via

John Lynch says 49ers could draft 1st-round QB but doesn't anticipate that 'right now,' expresses belief in Garoppolo

By David Bonilla
Jan 9, 2021

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch spoke with Tim Kawakami of The Athletic this week and was once again asked about the team's quarterback situation. Now, this was all before the buzz surrounding Deshaun Watson's disappointment in the Houston Texans and the potential trade talk that ensued. Hence, the focus was on the possibility that the 49ers might look to the first round of the draft to bolster the quarterback position. Kawakami, as part of the interview on his podcast, The TK Show, asked Lynch if the 49ers might consider using their top pick on one of the highly-touted incoming rookie signal-callers. "We certainly could," Lynch responded while
