Ravens at 49ers
Remember when these two teams met in that Super Bowl in the Superdome? That was just a couple of years ago, but even though Joe Flacco and Colin Kaepernick will still be involved, times have changed. Just a few weeks in, both squads are in danger of having the lights go out on their seasons. If San Francisco loses, it can forget about becoming the first team to play in a Super Bowl held in its own stadium.
Baltimore placed Lorenzo Taliaferro on injured reserve with a foot injury, meaning that Javorius “Buck” Allen moves up to the backup RB spot. Allen may actually be more than that right away, as Justin Forsett is dealing with his own foot injury. Even if Forsett plays, it’s a reminder that Allen is worth consideration for a roster spot, especially given that Taliaferro was getting some usage in the red zone.
