The Baltimore Ravens clearly won the top game in the American Football League against the San Francisco 49ers.
With the 33:19 win on Christmas Day, the Ravens also set an example for the playoffs beginning in the new year. Baltimore is the best NFL team with twelve wins and three defeats, the 49ers lost for the fourth time in the 15th game of the season.
For San Francisco quarterback Brock Purdy, it was probably the most difficult game of his career. The Ravens intercepted four of the playmaker's passes, and not much was missing from a few more. Already in the opening phase, Purdy, who was substituted with an ailing in the last quarter, had to accept three ball losses.
His counterpart Lamar Jackson, on the other hand, threw two passes in just 18 seconds in the third quarter that led to touchdowns. In between, Purdy lost the ball again. With the score at 30:12 for Baltimore, the game was decided early on.
After three defeats in a row, the Philadelphia Eagles achieved their eleventh win of the season with a 33:25 home win against the New York Giants. Quarterback Jalen Hurts threw a touchdown pass and carried passes to his teammates for a total of 301 yards. The Giants lost for the tenth time this season and no longer have a chance of participating in the playoffs.
