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 calls idea of 49ers keeping Jimmy Garoppolo 'absurd'

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers insist that holding onto Jimmy Garoppolo this season is possible. The team has unsuccessfully tried to trade the veteran quarterback without success. Of course, Garoppolo undergoing shoulder surgery on March 8 didn't help matters. One 49ers beat writer, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area, doesn't believe the team can realistically hold onto Garoppolo and his hefty $24.2 million base salary. After all, last year's No. 3 overall pick, Trey Lance, is expected to be the starting quarterback in 2022. Devoting a hefty chunk of this year's salary cap to a backup doesn't seem financially responsible. This is assuming that Lance remains on track to be the 49ers' starter. "If the 49ers do not view Garoppolo as the starter,



49ers rookie Kalia Davis not molding his game after D.J. Jones

The San Francisco 49ers begin their rookie minicamp on Friday afternoon, giving fans and media their first look at the nine rookies the team drafted, as well as the undrafted free agents the team signed or invited to camp. One player that likely will not participate in team drills is sixth-round defensive tackle Kalia Davis, who is recovering from a torn ACL he suffered last fall, which likely played a role in his falling draft stock. Davis has had an intriguing journey, playing linebacker during his freshman season before transitioning to the defensive line, which he attributed to his bigger size. "Well really, I moved from linebacker to D-lineman because my body was changing," Davis said. "I [gained] a little too much weight. The biggest part about

49ers rookie Danny Gray prepared for Trey Lance after practicing with "legend" in offseason

San Francisco 49ers rookie wideout Danny Gray spoke with the media for the first time since his draft interview, as he prepared for the 49ers' rookie minicamp, which is slated to begin on Friday. Gray, who was selected with the last pick in the third round of the 2022 NFL Draft, 105th overall, is a player with electrifying straight-line speed, which was confirmed with his 4.33 40-yard dash at the combine. However, Gray's talents aren't limited to just his speed; he works well with the ball in his hands and can be physical after the catch, despite his relatively slight 186-pound frame. When addressing his skillset, Gray acknowledged the biggest development over his
