49ers RB Frank Gore vs. Ravens LB Ray Lewis
Lewis has 44 tackles in three postseason games, but most of those have been five or six yards past the line of scrimmage. This will be Lewis' last game, and he will give whatever is left in the tank. Gore is a downhill runner who rushed for 1,214 yards and eight touchdowns on 258 carries in the regular season. Gore also has some shiftiness and can change directions quickly. He can take over a game.
