The meeting between the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens was exactly as it was billed to be.
Thanks to a 49-yard field goal from Justin Tucker as time expired, the Ravens earned a thrilling victory at M&T Bank Stadium. The result brought both teams’ records to 10-2 as they each continue to make their case that they are the best team in the NFL.
Right after Tucker’s kick soared through the uprights, plenty of folks on Twitter began asking the same thing: Did we just watch a preview of Super Bowl LIV?

You get the point.
Of course, it’s worth keeping in mind that this was the conversation after the Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs’ Monday night thriller last season. As you might recall, it ultimately was the New England Patriots that beat the Rams in the Super Bowl later that season.
So as long as the Pats are hanging around, it’s tough to imagine the Ravens just being a shoo-in.
