The San Francisco 49ers are set to take on the Baltimore Ravens in Week 16, looking to improve their 11-3 record and maintain control of the No. 1 seed in the NFC.

In doing so, they’ll face off against the AFC’s No. 1 seed, as the Ravens also hold an 11-3 record ahead of their matchup with the 49ers.

Coming into the game, the 49ers are seen as five-point favorites, with the over/under set at 47 points.

Amid their strong year, the Ravens are in contention for a Super Bowl appearance, and are led by quarterback Lamar Jackson, who has been an accurate passer this season, while also serving as Baltimore’s leading rusher.

Meanwhile, the 49ers are manned by quarterback Brock Purdy, who is among the league’s best in several statistical categories, leading to a matchup between two of the NFL’s hottest MVP candidates.
