The Five Plays That Determined The Game-Ravens/49ers

November 29, 2011 | Glenn Clark

San Francisco 49ers v Baltimore Ravens

Following every Baltimore Ravens game this season, Ryan Chell and I will take to the airwaves Tuesdays on “The Reality Check” on AM1570 with a segment known as “The Five Plays That Determined The Game.”

It’s a simple concept. We’ll select five plays from each game that determined the outcome. These five plays will best represent why the Ravens won or lost each game.

This will be our final analysis of the previous game before switching gears towards the next game on the schedule.

Here are the five plays that determined the Ravens’ 16-6 win over the San Francisco 49ers at M&T Bank Stadium…

(NOTE: Not all pictures are of actual play.)

    What about the called-back touchdown Ginn had first half? Seems like that penalty call could easily have altered the make-up of the rest of the game.

    (Edit from Glenn: Ryan put it on his list. I just try to only use plays that actually happened. Technically the touchdown never happened because of the penalty-and there’s at least a chance it wouldn’t have happened had it not been for the penalty…although I do believe it would have.

    And thanks for the ass-kicking in fantasy football.)
