The Baltimore Ravens will face the San Francisco 49ers in Week 16. This is a clash of top teams in the NFL as the AFC’s No. 1 Ravens will take on the No. 1 49ers on Monday night. Baltimore’s high-octane offense may be missing a key piece as Zay Flowers is questionable with a foot injury. He was limited on Thursday but then a full practice participant on Friday and Saturday.
