THE 49ERS HOSTS THE RAVENS IN A POSSIBLE SUPER BOWL PREVIEW




The NFL schedule makers couldn't have come up with a better Christmas night matchup than the one between the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers. The top team in the AFC visiting the NFC's best. Dominant defenses facing high-powered offenses. The top two MVP favorites. The game Monday night between the AFC-leading Ravens (11-3) and the NFC-leading 49ers (11-3) might just be a preview of a far more important game at the Super Bowl in Las Vegas in February. “You can’t ignore it,” Ravens safety Kyle Hamilton said. “It’s two great teams going at it. We’re on Christmas Day; it’s kind of as big as it gets. The game Monday night marks just the second time in NFL history that the teams with sole possession of the best record in each conference played this late in the season. The other came in 2005 when Seattle beat Indianapolis in Week 16. There have been 14 times that the Super Bowl featured a regular season rematch and both the Ravens and 49ers are listed as the favorites to get to the title game, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. “(The) Super Bowl is in February,” Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson said. “We’re in December right now. We have to focus on Monday night. I’m not worried about what people are saying.”
