49ers beat Ravens 25-20: Game recaps from Oct. 18

Oct 18, 2015 at 4:53 PM--


San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick connected deep with WR Torrey Smith for a 76-yard touchdown on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens giving the 49ers a 13-3 lead in the second quarter. It was the type of deep play that fans had hoped to see all season long from their quarterback and the new receiver signed during the offseason.
The 49ers would go into halftime with a 16-6 lead and go on to beat the Ravens 25-20.

QB Joe Flacco and the Ravens offense had a chance to win it late with just over a minute left in the game, but the drive came up short when 49ers S Eric Reid batted down a pass in the end zone.

Smith, along with WR Anquan Boldin, were playing against their former team for the first time during the regular season. Smith would finish the game with 96 yards on three catches and a touchdown. Boldin also had a big game with five catches for 102 yards.


Kaepernick would finish the game with 340 passing yards, his most in a game this season. He completed 16 of his 27 passes and threw two touchdowns with no interceptions. One of those scoring passes was the already mentioned completion to Smith, while the other was hauled in by WR Quinton Patton when former 49ers CB Shareece Wright fell, leaving Patton all alone in the end zone. Smith's touchdown was also against Wright.

FB Bruce Miller also had a big day with 89 yards on three receptions. His longest was a 52-yard reception in the first quarter.

Flacco was intercepted two times. One was by LB Michael Wilhoite and the other by CB Kenneth Acker.

As a team, the 49ers rushed for only 65 yards, their lowest total for the season. RB Carlos Hyde ended the game with 55 rushing yards. The other 10 were from Kaepernick.

The 49ers will now enter a short week as they prepare to face their division rival, the Seattle Seahawks, on Thursday night at Levi's Stadium.

Beat writer wonders if offseason additions could tempt 49ers to trade Raheem Mostert

The San Francisco 49ers should feel good about their running back depth. On their latest 49ers Talk podcast, Matt Maiocco and Laura Britt of NBC Sports Bay Area took a look at the team's offseason veteran additions and departures. When they landed at the running back group, Maiocco wondered if there is too much depth. Obviously, there is the argument that there is no such thing as too much depth. For example, the 49ers have to feel better about their quarterback position with high-potential rookie Trey Lance likely to open the season as Jimmy Garoppolo's backup. That's a better backup situation than the team had in recent years. At running back, San Francisco didn't just add veteran Wayne Gallman, who may be a severely underrated signing.

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Lately I have listened to some podcasts and read some tweets comparing the current San Francisco 49ers team (2021) to the 2019 team that fell just short of winning the Super Bowl. I find the comparison interesting. And since many people quickly assume the 2021 49ers are not as good as the 2019 team, I wanted to take a look for myself. So as we prepare for the team to report on Tuesday, let's compare the two teams, position by position. For the purpose of this very scientific experiment, we will assume everyone is healthy (even though that never happens). Let's start on offense. The defensive comparison is coming soon.

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Yesterday we took a look at the 2021 San Francisco 49ers offense to see how they compare with the team's offense from 2019. Some have said this year's team will be better than the 2019 team, while others have suggested that won't be the case. In our very scientific investigation, we determined the 2021 offense will be better than the 2019 offense. Today, we will take a look at the defenses.

Pro Football Focus continues its positional ranking leading to the 2021 season and published the lists for the top 32 tight ends, wide receivers, and running backs. The San Francisco 49ers are represented in two of the rankings. The glaring absence is within the ranking of the top 32 running backs. No 49ers ball-carrier is considered a top-32 talent. It is worth noting that all three of these rankings were initially released in May (here and here) but appear
