The Ravens continue to dominate everyone in their path so we have another episode full of noting but praise for them. There was no shortage of story lines following the 45-6 win in LA though. Some of the topics include: Lamar Jackson’s five touchdown’s, Matt Skura’s season ending injury, and Marcus Peters getting his revenge (7:05 SoundCloud, 7:35 other).

As always we also give you our players that we think are trending up or down. It’s been very difficult to pick players that are trending down the past few weeks but we still managed to give you a few names, even if we are being a little too nit picky (28:15 SoundCloud, 28:45 other).

We then turn our attention forward to the 49ers in what could be the game of the year. We said similar things before the Ravens took on the Patriots and Texans but those both of those ended up being tough games to watch for everyone outside of Baltimore. None the less, this is still a highly anticipated matchup so we give you our key matchups that we are looking for, as well as some score predictions (37:00 SoundCloud, 37:30 other).

To help us continue the Baltimore vs San Francisco discussion, Jake welcomed on his friend Justin Rodriguez, who is a die hard 49ers fan. The two discussed the exciting quarterback matchup between Jimmy Garoppolo & Lamar Jackson as well as former Raven, Kyle Juszczyk’s role with the 49ers offense (44:10 SoundCloud, 44:40 other).

Before wrapping up this episode we had to give some quick thoughts on Maryland basketball and their climb to No. 5 in the latest AP poll. A tougher challenge awaits the Terps this week but Mark Turgeon’s squad could be heavily rewarded if they take care of business in the Orlando Invitational. Both Duke and Michigan State suffered disappointing losses this week so a couple of wins could shoot the Terps into the top 3 come next Monday (58:40 SoundCloud, 58:10 other).

As always, the end of the show ends with our weekly numbers segment where Jake quizzes Nolan and Ian to see if he can remember the best Baltimore Sports athletes who wore #79 (1:06:20 SoundCloud, 1:06:50 other).
