3 big things: Baltimore Ravens beat San Francisco 49ers
2. Young Ravens are starting to click:
Chris Wormley was able to tip the pass that got the last stop for the Ravens’ defense. It kind of reminded me of Corey Redding’s game sealing interception against the New Orleans Saints in 2010 (I was at that game and it was an unforgettable play by Redding). Wormley had two tackles and half of a sack in the game. Wormley had a great game and he got great push for the defensive line. Wormley was drafted in 2017 and has really been just a guy for the defensive front. Now he’s become a reliable player who eats up space and does a lot of the dirty work in the trenches.

For the offense Hayden Hurst had one of his biggest games. He only had 21 yards yet the three catches he made were huge for the Ravens. The offensive line didn’t become a problem with the absence of Matt Skura. Patrick Mekari played well in his first start. Orlando Brown Jr. continued to be one of the best right tackles in football. If you take out Marshal Yanda, the entire offensive line is made of players on their first contract. The Ravens had a lot of young players take huge steps forward this season and this game was proof of that.
The Ravens are a very young team and they have a lot of players who are either still developing or who have just started to find their groove. The youth of this team is something to keep an eye on. It wasn’t a great day for Tyus Bowser or Jaylon Ferguson, yet these are two players who have flashed at times this season.
