Ranking The Remaining NFL Games

SB Nation asked all of their NFL team writers to pick one remaining game on their regular season schedule that stands out above all the rest. With that information in hand, they ranked all 140 remaining games in the 2011 regular season from #140 down to what they think the best remaining game on the schedule is in their opinion.

For the Baltimore Ravens, they liked the Thanksgiving night game when Baltimore hosts its first-ever Thanksgiving game, be it as the Ravens or the old Baltimore Colts. The San Francisco 49ers are coming to town, led by Ravens head coach John Harbaugh's brother, Jim, rookie head coach of the 49ers. It should be a great game, especially considering that San Francisco is running away with the NFC West already holding a four-game lead at the mid-season mark.

This is what David Fucillo, from SB Nation's SF 49ers blog, Niners Nation, wrote and predicted about the game:

11. San Francisco at Baltimore (Week 12, Thanksgiving night)

From David Fucillo at Niners Nation:

This was already an interesting game because of the first ever brother vs. brother [Jim Harbaugh vs. John Harbaugh] matchup. The media will hype it to no end as two extremely competitive brothers square off on Thanksgiving.

However, thanks to the 49ers' strong start, this is also looking like a potential battle of conference titans. The Green Bay Packers remain the team to beat in the NFC and the Ravens will get plenty of fight from the New England Patriots, Pittsburgh Steelers and others. Nonetheless, this could involve two of the best teams in the league in primetime. Hopefully folks don't pass out from the tryptophan, because this could be a fun game to watch.

Winner: 49ers.

Don't worry though, as they liked the Ravens at Steelers game this past Sunday as their 2nd best game remaining on the schedule when they wrote this, and predicted a Steelers victory. Oops!
