Baltimore Sun Sunday - - RAVENS - By Childs Walker

Jimmy Garop­polo has played well of late, with passer rat­ings above 100 in four of his past five games. But he re­mains turnover-prone, with 10 in­ter­cep­tions and eight fum­bles in 11 games.

Tight end Ge­orge Kit­tle is Garop­polo’s best re­ceiver with 52 catches on 63 tar­gets for 670 yards. Pro Foot­ball Fo­cus grades him the top all-around player at his po­si­tion. San Fran­cisco ranks 14th in the league in to­tal pass­ing but fifth in yards per at­tempt, a pro­file sim­i­lar to that of the Ravens if not quite as ex­treme.

La­mar Jack­son continues to be a low-vol­ume passer, but he’s thrown with dev­as­tat­ing ef­fi­ciency in re­cent weeks. Jack­son ranks third in the NFL with a passer rat­ing of 111.4 and leads all quar­ter­backs in ESPN’s QBR statis­tic. He’s com­pleted 64 of 84 passes with 13 touch­downs and no in­ter­cep­tions over the Ravens’ past four games. The Ravens have three of the best pass block­ers in the league in tack­les Ronnie Stan­ley and Or­lando Brown Jr. and right guard Mar­shal Yanda.
