Ray Rice, 59 yards rushing against the 49ers
The Baltimore Ravens offense is ranked 15th in the NFL, averaging 338 yards per game and 23 points per game.
The San Francisco 49ers offense is ranked 26th in the NFL, averaging 310 yards per game and 23 points per game as well.
The last time they played it was a very close game, and was tied up until the fourth quarter. The stats support that game, as both teams are evenly matched on offense.
Both running backs are dangerous, but Ray Rice gets the edge.
Ray Rice is ranked second in the NFL, rushing for 1,364 yards, and running in 12 touchdowns. Ray Rice averaged 85 yards per game.
Frank Gore is ranked sixth this year, rushing for 1,211 yards with eight rushing touchdowns on the season. He averaged 75 rushing yards per game.
When it comes to quarterback, I give the edge to Alex Smith. He's changed this year, controlling his mistakes. All year he's made good decisions, which is a turnaround from previous years.
Alex Smith is the ninth ranked QB this year after completing 61.3 percent of his throws and throwing 17 Touchdowns. He only threw five interceptions all year and he threw for 3,144 yards. Obviously, this was an improvement from 2010, when he threw 14 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
Joe Flacco is ranked 18th among Quarterbacks in 2011, throwing for 3,610 yards, 20 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. He finished the regular season with a 57.6 completion percentage. Actually, this was worse than he did in 2010.
