Well, Purdy targeted Willie Snead on third down. That’s where not having Jauan Jennings hurt.
Jason Verrett started the second half at nickel. Deommodore Lenoir lined up wide. It didn’t make much of a difference as Jackson broke contain on two plays on the drive and scored in no time to extend the Ravens lead 23-12.
Purdy threw his fourth interception. This time, he was hit, but it was still a turnover. Trent Williams nearly made the play of the game, running down the Ravens’ defender and forcing a fumble. But the play was upheld and it was Ravens ball.
One play later, after it looked like Fred Warner and Dre Greenlaw were scrambling as the ball was snapped, Jackson found Zay Flowers wide open in the end zone to make it 30-12. The only saving grace for the Niners was that there was still enough time left in the game to come back.
But another drive without points didn’t help. Mitch Wishnowsky pinned Baltimore inside their five. Could the defense come up with another turnover? A defensive holding on 3rd & 1 by Javon Kinlaw summed up how the quarter went.
Baltimore ended up driving the ball all the way to the 49ers 1-yard line, before a delay of game penalty on 4th & goal forced Justin Tucker to kick another field goal. That made it 33-12, Baltimore.
