49ers vs. Ravens: A prospector's guide

New, comments

We take a look at pertinent facts, figures and history in the Week 6 matchup with the Baltimore Ravens.

The San Francisco 49ers return home this week for a two-game homestand. They will face the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, and then follow that up with a short week before facing the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday. The Seahawks game will be nationally broadcast on CBS, but the Ravens game is likely to be fairly limited. The game gets Kevin Harlan and Rich Gannon in the booth, which likely means a primarily regional coverage. We'll have more on that later in the day.

The 49ers are coming off a brutal loss to the New York Giants, losing on the Giants final drive. This marked the team's fourth straight defeat. After back-to-back poor offensive performances, Colin Kaepernick and company finally got it going in the second half against the Giants. Unfortunately, the defense regressed following its strong showing against the Green Bay Packers the week prior. Will we finally see both units perform well on Sunday, or will the inconsistency remain a fixture of 49ers football in 2015?

We're back with another prospector's guide. The 49ers get their media schedule going early Wednesday morning with Ravens head coach John Harbaugh conducting an 8:00 a.m. PT conference call with Bay Area media. He is followed at 8:50 a.m. by Joe Flacco. Jim Tomsula returns for his first "Ravens week" press conference at 10:30 a.m. That is followed by. Colin Kaepernick and Thomas McGaughey who will be at the podium starting at 11:45. The locker room is open from 12 to 12:45, and practice is set at 2 p.m. We'll get the practice participation report sometime later in the afternoon.

On Thursday, the coordinators speak, with Eric Mangini and Geep Chryst scheduled for 11:45 a.m. The locker room is open after that until 12:45, and then practice is set for 2:40 p.m. On Friday, Jim Tomsula speaks at 11:55 a.m., practice is set for 12:40 a.m., and the locker room will be open after practice. There is no word yet on if the 49ers will depart on Friday or Saturday.
