      Ravens offense scored 16 on Seattle, not 30.

    2. leroy jenkins

      The Ravens won but the 49ers really won and here's why..

    3. Brez


    4. Sean Bradley

      Those three plays the Patriots ran in the SB last year -- that Dan Orlovsky was talking about is called Hoss Y Juke... the Patriots ran in with different looks but similar concept on three consecutive plays.

    5. afutla qian

      Who cares what stephen a says about the ravens. He's a Steeler fan!!!

    9. Angry Leo5

      Love downplaying Lamar Jackson.. He's not bust.. Where's Manziel💩

    10. veritasomniavincit7

      Stephen A. is Foghorn Leghorn and that little guy with the glasses thinks he’s a chicken-hawk. Max is is just a loudmouth.

    11. Peyton Mccowen

      If the ravens won by 50 stephen A still gonna say the 49ers did better

    12. Myron McClain

      6:33 dude it’s football there is no excuses for that

      Find your identity to win it all

      1. doliio volay

        Well that’s a bad take if I’ve ever heard one.

    17. Brent Davis

      You have to stick to your guns and your 🍞 and butter

      orlovsky Knows absolutely nothing

    23. Jose Zamora

      Didn't the ravens offense moved on that 4-1

      1. bodoti qwiu

        Get that other dude outa here

    24. SmoothView

      He can’t be serious SAS


      The NFL gave them the little one, but the BIG one is ours. That’s the way it works.

    26. Matthew Crites

      Nah, 49ers held the ravens to there lowest score, stats, and made Lamar fumble for the first time. The 49ers are more impressive

    27. Michael A

      Niners. Ravens had some help.

    28. Jay Krainert

      They because Jimmy G cant hang on to the ball. He has 5 lost fumbles (9 total fumbles) at minimum 3 were in great field position for other team. He needs to hold on to the fucking ball when he gets sacked

    29. Melvin Frooks

      He's a troll

    30. bocoy noiu

      Well that’s a bad take if I’ve ever heard one.

    31. Rocky Austin

      If the kicker makes the kick

    32. Cabarojo

      Kellerman is the epitome of a MSM talking head

    33. Iban vazquez

      Stephen A is a hater

      1. bocoy noiu

        Criticizing Jimmy G because he didn't throw 300 yards in the rain



    35. admtahoe

      I can't wait for the day Jackson is hurt, we'll see how great the Ravens are..nothing but a one man show.

    36. Gerald Jelks

      That man gets paid to hate

    37. Christian Taylor

      Haters gonna hate. I love it this the same energy that motivated them to come out on top. I look at every team each to specialized in different areas why is it so hard for haters to accept the ravens. Not too long ago we had the best defense in the league where was all the haters then ?

    38. Wil l

      Get that other dude outa here

    39. Montae DaPlug

      If the ravens would have lost the game Stefan a would be going crazy he laid back

    40. darkboyztv1

      SAS TURNED INTO A BOZO,he hoping BUFFALO win so he can say see I told you LJ not that good

    41. iyeetedyourcousin

      Niners should draft Justin Fields next year's draft

    42. Rahvee P

      Did SAS not realized it was raining hard the whole game which prevented both ends from putting up numbers.

    43. jbreeze161

      This guy

    44. Trevor Philips

      hot take: Stephen A. is right Jackson was incredible. We expected him to be incredible though. But could the 49ers defense contain him? They limit him to just _two_ TDs... to just 20 Points. Though I am more impressed with the Ravens as a team, I think my opinion about the 49ers (and especially their defense come playoff time) is what impressed me more about _THIS_ particular game.

    45. Jose Palomo

      Hey Stephen A 🖕🏼🖕🏼🖕🏼 ravens taking it wether you like it or not! 💪🏼💯🏈

    46. Matt Johnson

      Just one adjustment and the 49ers win this game. The DE's for the 49ers were responsible for the run, they ignored Jackson and crashed on the RB. Next game I guarantee the DE's will be responsible for Jackson, ignore the RB and hit Jackson every time he keeps or pretends to keep ball, let the rest of the DL and LB's take stop the RB.

    47. joseph D

      49ers should of drove the ball with 3 timeouts before the half. Take a shot to score a td, if not, take 3 pts. Get as close as you can in fg range. 4 & 1and you pass? Mostert avg 7 ypg! Why not a counter run, or QB sneak. If you're going to pass then why not throw a screen to Juzyczck or Kittle.. It's all good 9ers will learn from it

    48. Nikk Carroll

      Criticizing Jimmy G because he didn't throw 300 yards in the rain

    49. Social Services

      Lamar Jackson can’t throw plain and simple. He’ll get exposed in the playoffs just watch

    50. 1D 1R A C U 1L A 209 !!

      On the road, early morning game bad conditions and lost by a measly FG. 49ers win on a neutral field. Stephen A is spot on. 👍

    51. Morris Burns

      Impressed by the loser and NOT the winner?? I'm dead. Who's coming to my funeral?

    52. Donte623

      Stephen A is wack

    53. Jay Ferrero

      Max looks like G Eazys Dad..

    54. Hunter Henryk

      Blah blah blah. Here's what it really came down to in one sentence. Both teams played equal to the other, except the Ravens made their 50 yard field goal and the 49ers missed theirs.

    55. Jimmy Krackin

      Good Job Molly.

    56. Jimmy Krackin

      Both teams did great. Game could have went either way... if they play again, it will be the same thing. A field goal win. These two are the hottest teams right now

    57. S D E

      Why Stephen A. doesn't like L Jax?

    58. Skeej

      Super Bowl Preview. Been saying it since week 2 49ers vs Ravens super bowl i mean i am a diehard niners fan and i say we will go every year but this year i am serious and im not being bias when i say I'll take SF in a rematch

    59. B defonzo

      Yes indeed- and the element made the passing game less potent for the niners.

    60. Justin Stergar

      Lamar Jackson looks like he is already 40 years old.

    61. D.B. Cooper

      no doubt Steven A. The 49ers will win the superbowl

    62. Edwin Castelan

      Why is that Guy with Glasses Talking about Football.🤦🏽‍♂️

    63. Planet Jigobot TV

      So we can't win I got it... Hatervforeslz

    64. TheJulianShow

      Stephanie A is an idiot... These people are professional football players. Time, how far you had to fly to the game, weather and any other factors other than you lacing up your cleats and punching the other team in the mouth, have nothing to do with professional football!

    65. Sylexiel II

      Dan is killing Max. Finally great to hear a player who actually played QB in the NFL and is able to give great insight. SAS as usual believes he's always right and every one is wrong when all he does it spit narratives and says meaningless things without context.

    66. Tek1D

      These casters are annoying. Can we get some people that actually play sports to talk about sports

    67. Shiri

      What Steven A said is so stupid about being more impressed with the Niners loss, but he'll say anything not to give the Raven's their props! How you gonna be impressed with the losing team unless they just stink so bad and did much better than expected? Which wasn't the case. If anything I would expect him to be more impressed with the Ravens, believing we wouldn't win. Go figure!

    68. James Jones

      Both teams are beast! Let's hope we get these two teams for the Super Bowl!

    69. 91 pyro

      😒 Stephen is just a hater!

    70. Vito Anderson

      Im impressed with San Francisco and heres why....
