Turnovers hurt the 49ers in loss to Ravens 33-19

The marketing of the NFL was genius when they added a potential Super Bowl match-up between the 49ers and the Ravens during Christmas Day.

Things went downhill for the 9ers. Right out the gate, Baltimore scored on their opening drive and Purdy threw his fourth INT, which turned into a Ravens' TD. For the first time this season, the 49ers had to dig themselves out of a 18-point lead.

Purdy and crew tried to do all that they could do, but the Ravens' defense took over and put the game on ice. Purdy finished 18 out of 33 for 255 yards, and 4 picks
