Michael Pierce was fantastic in the middle of the defensive line, as he proved extremely difficult to deal with all game. It's no surprise that the 49ers had more success rushing to the outside than inside. He also looked good rushing the passer, recording multiple pressures.
L.J. Fort was a force against the run and racked up a big grade thanks to his multiple stops and game-changing plays. He also looked great in coverage, especially considering he was dealing with some great pass-catching running backs out of the backfield all day.
This game, like pretty much all their other games, was the Lamar Jackson show. While he wasn't quite as dominant as he has been in weeks past, he was fantastic when he needed to be. His running ability is second to none in the league. He missed a few passes, but he ultimately did what he needed to do to win this game.
The Ravens' passing offense runs through their tight ends, and this game was no different. Mark Andrews and Hayden Hurst were fantastic for the offense and made some really big catches. Andrews was especially good, showing off some great body control and hands on some really tough catches that extended drives (or ended them, as his touchdown catch did).
The 49ers have to be happy that George Kittle is back for them not just for his incredible pass-catching ability, but his stellar run blocking. Kittle had a great game in that department as he was able to help the 49ers establish their incredibly successful run game. He also came up big on his few targets as a receiver.
It was a game to forget for Jimmy Garoppolo. He missed a few too many passes, especially on third downs. He also had a few turnover-worthy plays that did not help his team. With the run game being so successful, Garoppolo just couldn't make enough plays through the air.
Marcell Harris had that massive play in which he stripped Jackson before he hit the ground, but that wasn't all he did. Harris looked good throughout the game and had an impressive showing in the run game.
Fred Warner seemed to be all over the place for the 49ers. He was targeted a lot and gave up some receptions, but he also had two huge pass defenses that ended drives. Warner finished the game with the most defensive stops among anyone on the 49ers' defense.
