49ers Faithful Pick Top 5 Plays from Win over Ravens

In a short week, there's little time to celebrate a win.

That being said, the Faithful deserve their chance to sound off after the San Francisco 49ers topped the Baltimore Ravens, 25-20, on Sunday.

The victory at Levi's® Stadium snapped the 49ers four-game losing streak and improved their record to 2-4 ahead of a Thursday night game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Colin Kaepernick was masterful for the second consecutive week, completing 16 passes for 340 yards and two touchdowns. San Francisco's quarterback connected on passes of 76, 52, 51, 28, 26 and 21 yards.

Your votes have been tallied and five plays made the cut, one of which taking the top spot in a landslide.

Thanks to all who participated on Twitter using #FannTake.5. Ack Attack

Kenneth Acker grabbed his second interception of the season on Sunday. The pass from Joe Flacco wasn't a good one as the Ravens quarterback lobbed a pass straight into the air with Acker the only player within 10 yards of the ball.

Acker's return, however, was what made the play special. The cornerback shaked and baked his way 45 yards down the field before finally being taken down at the Ravens 38-yard line.

  1. "Bruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuce

On the first play of the 49ers second possession, Colin Kaepernick hit Bruce Miller on a play action pass into the right flat. The fullback had room to run and took the play for a first down. Miller wasn't done.

As Ravens linebacker C.J. Mosley approaced, Miller hit him with a stiff arm, knocking the defender back several yards. The move allowed Miller to gain 10 more yards as the play eventually went for 28. Later in the first quarter, the fullback added a career-long catch of 52 yards and a 9-yard reception. Miller's 89 receiving yards were a career high.

  1. Perfect Throw, Better Catch

After a Justin Tucker missed field goal nearly pulled the Ravens within three points, the 49ers wasted no time adding to their lead. On 2nd-and-21 from the 49ers 24-yard line, Kaepernick stepped up in the pocket and scrambled to his left. While on the run, Kaepernick turned his shoulders and unleashed a pass deep down the left sideline for Anquan Boldin. The quarterback dropped the throw through tight coverage over Boldin's shoulder, who made a diving catch to pick up 51 yards.

  1. QP Finds the End Zone

Two plays after Boldin's acrobatics from the Ravens 21-yard line, Kaepernick was back on the move, this time scrambling to his right. Quinton Patton adjusted his route and lost Ravens cornerback Shareece Wright in the process. Kaepernick planted and threw a strike to the wide open Patton for the receiver's first career touchdown.

After securing the pass and making sure there were no flags on the play, Patton lept into the crowd to celebrate with some of his best friends, the Faithful. Patton is, after all, a man of the people.

@49ers Patton's touchdown then his celebration then his leap to the fans! #FannTake — Daniel (@Outnin) October 19, 2015

  1. No. 82 Shows off the Burners (Insert Fire Emojis Here)

No surprises here.

Fans had been waiting to see a long connection from Kaepernick to Torrey Smith. Sure, it happened on a 75-yard touchdown against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but that play happened on the road and had no bearing on the outcome of the game.

On Sunday, the Faithful were treated to a 76-yard bomb from Kaepernick to Smith. On the play, Smith beat Wright on a double move as the route broke towards the sideline before the receiver turned upfield. Kaepernick hit Smith in stride, allowing the receiver to run away from Wright and the rest of the Ravens secondary.

The completion was the longest reception of Smith's career and came against his former team.
