And so we come to the end of an exciting and dynamic season. The rookie QBs came out in force and are rewriting the game. There were some new stars to be sure who aren't QBs. JJ Watt took the league by storm and is a super nice guy as well. He proposed to a little fan who was crushed she was too young to marry JJ. There were tons of other story lines including the drama in Gotham. Can't wait for that to be over.

Anyway on to the game:

Baltimore Ravens at San Francisco 49ers

I must admit up front and have stated all along that I am a lifelong Niners fan. The Ravens have been knocking on this door for years and should have been here last season. With it being Ray's last game, emotions will be high and Joe 'not elite but I win' Flacco at the helm this team is formidable. They are playing much better ball than they did all season.

The Niners made a daring switch at QB late in the season even though Alex Smith was doing a very god job, but he doesn't take the offense to the next level. Colin Kaepernick does. Meanwhile, the defense has been very good all year.

I didn't read what experts were saying all year in game picks, but I did for this game. I must concur that it looks to be a very good game on paper with evenly matched teams and brothers at the helm. I have crappy numbers in the work pool so I need a safety and field goals to win some money!

I never picked a score, but I will for this one: 49ers 24, Ravens 21

I can already tell you that this score pick will be horribly wrong. :)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
