Win over 49ers creates 8-game winning streak, longest in Ravens history

Ravens, 49ers

The game between the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers definitely lived up to the hype. The Ravens’ win over the 49ers gives Baltimore an eight-game winning streak, which is the longest in franchise history.

Sunday’s game between the Ravens and 49ers came down to a game-winning field goal for Justin Tucker. Of course, the nearly automatic kicker delivered and gave Baltimore a three-point lead as time expired.

With the victory, the Ravens keep finding ways to win football games, extending their win streak to eight games. The most impressive part about their win streak is that the teams they’ve beaten include the New England Patriots, Seattle Seahawks, Houston Texans, and now the 49ers.

All of those teams are likely to be playing beyond December, as are the Ravens. Baltimore’s win streak began with a victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in overtime in Week 5.

Furthermore, over the Ravens’ past five games, they’ve outscored their opponents 192-63. Their contest versus San Francisco was the only one that was within double-digits.

At this very moment, there isn’t another team in the NFL which is playing better football than Baltimore. While Lamar Jackson gets his deserved credit for being the NFL’s MVP frontrunner, but John Harbaugh hasn’t gotten the attention he deserves.

Going back to last season, people were calling for Harbaugh to lose his job. But since Week 11 of last season, Baltimore has won 16 out of their past 19 regular-season games.

If you didn’t believe that Baltimore was a Super Bowl contender, now may be the time to jump on the bandwagon.
