That's how you make a statement. In the showdown between the Ravens and 49ers on Monday night, a lot of people thought this would be a close game - it was deemed a potential preview of the Super Bowl.

However, things weren't close at all, with Baltimore making its way to California and dominating this one. In the end, the Ravens posted a 33-19 win. In the victory, quarterback Lamar Jackson was nothing short of brilliant, silencing a lot of his haters out there, including Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio.

On the night, Jackson tossed for 252 yards and two touchdowns, while adding 45 more yards on the ground. Nearly 300 total yards and two scores against the fierce SF defense? That's exactly what happened. From our chair, Jackson is looking like the MVP. Brock Purdy? Get out of here with that talk.
