Injuries are part of the game, but my argument makes plenty of sense. As luck would have it, Haloti Ngata was the Raven who got hurt. He's one of the best defensive linemen in the NFL. If the Raven who got hurt was, say, Courtney Upshaw, then the impact on the Ravens defense would have been less negative. In Chess, if you lose a pawn, so what? If you lose a knight, then it stings a bit, and if you lose your queen, then it stings a lot. The 49ers are lucky the Ravens lost one of their stronger Chess pieces. That enabled them to get back in the game as quickly as they did.
