BALTIMORE -- If the Baltimore Ravens performance in their preseason opener served as a sneak preview for the regular season, then Gary Kubiaks new offensive scheme could be a smash hit. Joe Flacco produced an 80-yard touchdown drive in his only series, and the Ravens amassed 386 yards in offence en route to a 23-3 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday night. It was the third time in three tries that Ravens coach John Harbaugh got the best of his brother, Jim Harbaugh, coach of the 49ers. Baltimore previously defeated San Francisco on Thanksgiving 2011 and in the Super Bowl ending the 2012 season. "Weve got some work to do," Jim Harbaugh said. Especially on defence. "Thats probably the biggest concern coming out right now," Jim Harbaugh noted. "We got pushed around a little bit." Each team played its starting unit for one series before the backups took over. After Colin Kaepernick moved the 49ers 66 yards for a field goal, Flacco made himself right at home in Kubiaks variation of the West Coast offence, going 4 for 5 for 52 yards during a 10-play scoring drive. "Ten plays in a new offence, that doesnt happen very often," wide receiver Steve Smith said. "We were high tempo, high paced, so that went well." Kubiak, the former head coach of the Houston Texans, replaced offensive co-ordinator Jim Caldwell, now Detroits head coach. "The execution by the offence on our first drive was what we like to see," John Harbaugh said. "Our technique and assignments were sharp. It was good, fundamentally sound football." Four different receivers caught passes from Flacco, the former Super Bowl MVP: Dennis Pitta for 14 yards, Jacoby Jones for 12, Kyle Juszczyk for 17 and Smith for 9. "You expect to go out there and have a good drive," Flacco said. "You envision good things happening. You have a good idea of what plays youre going to run. It kind of went on schedule." Ray Rice ran three times for 17 yards after receiving a warm ovation from the home crowd during pregame introductions. Rice has been suspended by the NFL for the opening two regular season games after being arrested for domestic violence in February. A year ago, the Ravens averaged a meagre 3.1 yards per carry. In this game, they totalled 237 yards rushing on 48 tries, a 4.9 average. "The thing that was good was that we went out the first drive, Joe and all of us, and we executed," Rice said. "But when we came out, the same level of execution came in. It was good to see that there was no dropoff from anybody." Bernard Pierce will probably start while Rice is serving his suspension. Pierce ran for 37 yards, including a 2-yard touchdown run to end Baltimores opening drive. Kubiaks offence is different for the running backs, too, and Pierce appears to have made the adjustment. "Its definitely a one-cut system," he said. "Its not that complicated to run." John Harbaugh was predictably low-key about the success of the running game. "Its just one day and you have to build on top of it," he said. San Francisco had offensive co-ordinator Greg Roman back from last year, but he streamlined the playbook during the off-season in an effort to make it easier for Kaepernick to get the call in. Kaepernick appeared relaxed at the helm during his lone series. He completed his only pass, 17 yards to tight end Vance McDonald. "Ended up in the red zone with an opportunity to score a touchdown, so thats all that really matters," Kaepernick said. "The biggest thing for us was we were trying to get points on the board, regardless of how we get there." San Francisco running back Frank Gore did not play. Rookie Carlos Hyde started and gained 39 yards on five carries. Jonathan Martin started at right tackle for the 49ers in place of injured Anthony Davis (shoulder). Martin, who was in the centre of the Miami Dolphins bullying scandal involving former teammate Richie Incognito, came to San Francisco in an off-season trade. Kaepernicks backup, Blaine Gabbert, went 3 for 11 for 20 yards and an interception. Flaccos replacement, Tyrod Taylor, completed 13 of 21 passes for 116 yards and a touchdown. He also ran for 59 yards on five carries. Justin Tucker kicked three field goals for Baltimore, including a 55-yarder that made it 16-3 late in the third quarter. NOTES: The 49ers rested, among others, Gore, WRs Michael Crabtree and Brandon Lloyd and LB Patrick Willis. ... Ravens top draft pick C.J. Mosley had a sack. Nate Orchard Jersey . Nothing pretty.

Watch the game live on TSN and TSN GO at 9pm et/6pm pt. Serge Ibaka returned to the Thunder lineup from a calf injury that was supposed to sideline him for the remainder of the postseason and the results were sparkling. Ibaka helped OKC to victories in Games 3 and 4 and his defense has been a huge reason for the shift in momentum. With Ibaka back in action, the Thunder have held the Spurs to 40 and 36 points in the paint for the two games at Chesapeake Energy Arena. Without Ibaka and the series at AT&T Center, San Antonio exploited his absence to the tune of 66 and 54 points in the paint. But Ibakas return isnt the only factor in OKC tying the series. Kevin Durant, the reigning MVP, has been brilliant, but Russell Westbrook has been amazing. The Thunder won Game 4, 105-92, and the dynamic duo of Oklahoma City was on full display. Westbrook finished with 40 points, 10 assists, five steals and five rebounds, while Durant poured in 31 points on just 22 shots. Westbrook became the first player since Michael Jordan in 1989 to have a postseason game with at least 40 points, 10 assists, five rebounds and five steals. "I just think myself and Kevin, obviously we want to win, and we want to get better," said Westbrook. "Tonight, we came out with a defensive mindset. I thought we did a great job of helping each other out defensively, and that led to us getting out in transition, getting open looks, and it looked easy for both of us." The Thunder shot 50.8 percent from the field over the first three quarters to build a substantial lead, one aided by a staggering 21-0 advantage in fasstbreak points.dddddddddddd Tony Parker scored 14 points, while the other two-thirds of San Antonios Big 3 -- Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili -- totaled 14 points on 5-of-16 shooting. Kawhi Leonard scored 10 as the San Antonio starters, including Danny Green and Tiago Splitter, combined for 39 points, one shy of Westbrooks total. "Theyre talented obviously, but the athleticism and the length gives you a small margin of error, and youd better be smart the way you play, and you cant afford to screw that up as many times as we did," said Spurs coach Gregg Popovich. "And I think we have to play harder." To that end, Pop sat his starters midway through the third quarter, bringing some back in the fourth. Afterward, he indicated that he was resting players for Thursday, but after practice on Wednesday, he said some changes, albeit small ones, might be in order. "Weve considered a couple of tweaks here and there just in the game plan." Popovich said. "I dont know exactly where thatll be, but we saw a few things that we think might warrant a little tweak here and there." The Spurs, who are 8-1 at home this postseason, saw a similar scenario play out two years ago. They beat the Thunder in the first two games, then lost the last four as OKC marched into the NBA Finals. "I dont think about it," said Pop. Maybe Popovich should think about this - the Thunder have won seven straight over the Spurs with a full lineup, including Ibaka. "We know what were playing for," said Durant. "We know that the series is far from over, and we know we havent done anything, but what were supposed to do, which is win at home, taking care of our home court." Game 6 will be Saturday night in Oklahoma City. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
