The rules are simple: pick two players on defense, two players on offense, and one "wild card" (an offensive player, defensive player, special teamer or coach) who stuck out from the pack.
As you all are surely aware, the Ravens turned in a hard-fought win against the 49ers, and as a result, we have some Helmet-Slaps to hand out.
They will count down in sequential order before we name the ultimate honor -- Two Slaps To The Helmet. That one player who one single Slap just wouldn't sit right.
Without further ado:
Glenn's Pats on the Ass:
Big time statement performance from someone whose name we haven't discussed much this season. Awesome stuff.
On top of everything else they have, they STILL have perhaps the best kicker in football history.
He's the guy I WANTED to leave off the list so that I could put someone else on (specifically Sam Koch)...but I couldn't. He was still very good even on a day where he wasn't perfect.
I thought he was a monster and the best player on the field yesterday.
In a game where the defense allowed so many rushing yards and the pass rush wasn’t overwhelming, his pass deflection was one of the biggest plays of the game.

Seemingly always in the right place, the forced fumble was just what the Ravens needed after it looked like the 49ers might take a two-possession lead.
3. Mark Andrews
The security blanket for Lamar, he is realistically the Ravens’ No. 1 wide receiver.
2. Justin Tucker
Perhaps there were some nerves from fans due to his shaky performance of late, but the coaches clearly felt no need to move the ball closer for him.
1. Lamar Jackson
Despite the conditions clearly affecting his accuracy, he routinely made the plays he needed to make to put the team in a position to win and keep them ahead of the sticks. That was also one of the more impressive forced fumbles I’ve seen.
