Rodgers had just 104 yards and one touchdown, one of the least productive games in his career.
On the flip side, Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers offense have enjoyed the run, as well; the Niners rank second in rush YPG (145.6), are tied for the second-most rush TDs (15) and boast arguably the best RB depth in the NFL.
But Jackson is also on an unprecedented run. We were beating ourselves, and those penalties, they started to add up toward the end of the game and get us out of field position, like you saw.
This one will be a football nerd's dream to review on the all-22 tape.
And though much has been made about Jackson's impeccable speed (he's on pace to break Michael Vick's single-season rushing record of 1,039 yards for a QB), he has shown this season that his arm can be just as deadly as his legs.
Lamar Jackson had a season-low 105 passing yards on the day, but managed 101 on the ground, a touchdown, and that all-important fourth-down conversion. However, the lead over last week's match was -4¹ / ₂ for the Ravens and now stands -6 points on their 45-6 loss to the Rams at Monday Night Football, while everyone commits to the Baltimore train.
In turn, the 49ers went for it themselves at Baltimore's 35-yard line. San Francisco's defense forced a Baltimore punt on their first drive, that included a big pass breakup by Fred Warner.
The game of the week could very well be a Super Bowl preview, not to mention a Super Bowl XLVII rematch of sorts.
We're still a ways out from determining this year's Super Bowl teams, but Sunday's game will be an interesting measuring stick for both San Francisco and Baltimore.
Thomas has Super Bowl experience, as he played in two of them and won one during his time with the Seattle Seahawks, but he is playing a rather unsafe game here.
As noted, Jackson can throw, too.
