2. The Baltimore Ravens stifle Purdy

Brock Purdy is in the midst of a fantastic season with him at the front of the MVP race right above Lamar Jackson according to oddsmakers.

Purdy hasn't had more than one turnover in six weeks, and he's had just two turnovers total in that time frame. He's on a fantastic run and the 49ers offense is firing on all cylinders.

It's certainly not going to be easy, but I think the Ravens' defense is good enough to throw Purdy off of his rhythm.

Purdy's worst game of the season came against the Browns, who have a very comparable defense to the Ravens.

I think the Ravens can be very successful if they can get pressure on Brock Purdy, which is something they have been great at this season. They lead the NFL in sacks per game at 3.6.

I predict that the Ravens force Purdy to make multiple mistakes, leading to his first game with multiple turnovers since October 29th.
