The 49ers played lights out in their home Playoff matchup vs. Vikings. Here is three reasons why the 49ers will be a dangerous opponent vs. Ravens in a months.
- The Defense: No matter whether the starters played or the second team played. The defense was swinging from goal line to goal line, sideline to sideline. They sacked Cousins 6 times.
- Garoppolo’s resilience – After throwing his only interception of the game, Garoppolo led the 49ers on three additional scoring drives and kept the ball for twice as long as the Vikings.
- The Bye Week helped tremendously: Because S Trey Greenlaw stooped Seahawks WR at the 1/2 yardline, the 49ers earned a Bye Week. In the week off, key players gained their health back and showed wy having a Bye week is so crucial.
The Baltimore Ravens have to focus on their AFC Divisional Matchup vs. the Titans, the red-hot Titans right not. But they must be thinking about how dangerous the 49ers will be.
