Joe Flacco's bomb to Jacoby Jones
With the Ravens leading, 14-3, late in the second half, quarterback Joe Flacco stepped up in the pocket and uncorked a deep ball from midfield to wide receiver Jacoby Jones, who had gotten behind the 49ers secondary. Jones fell to the turf as he adjusted to a pass that was slightly underthrown but got up after 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver leaped over without touching him down, made 49ers safety Dashon Goldson whiff with a span move and beat Culliver to the end zone for a 56-yard touchdown reception.
