11-3. 26. 8:15 p.m. ET. ABC, ESPN. Monday, Dec. 25. 49ers-Ravens gameday. 11-3. 42. 49ers -6

The 49ers wrap up Christmas weekend on Monday night with a must-watch primetime showdown against the top-seeded Ravens.

It makes plenty of sense why so many out there are tabbing Monday Night Football on Christmas Day between the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens as a potential Super Bowl preview.

After all, the two top-seeded teams in their respective conferences are both 11-3 and are either at or close to the top in both offensive and defensive standings heading into the final day of Week 16. The two teams also boast two top contenders for league MVP, too, in quarterbacks Brock Purdy and Lamar Jackson, who'll have the chance to make their case opposite each other in the bright lights at Levi's Stadium.

Hype aside, it's important to note that this is just a regular-season football game. Sure, there's playoff seeding at stake here, and both the Niners and Ravens want to hold onto the No. 1 spot in the postseason picture.

But, as tempting as it is to think it, Week 16 isn't the Super Bowl. Not even close.

It's still going to be a must-watch game, though, and we've got you covered.

49ers injury report vs. Ravens, Monday Night Football

San Francisco is a bit banged up for this contest and will miss starting defensive tackle Arik Armstead for a third consecutive game.

Here is the 49ers' Week 16 injury report:

  • DT Arik Armstead (foot): OUT
  • LB Oreon Burks (knee): OUT
  • TE Ross Dwelley (ankle): OUT
  • WR Jauan Jennings (concussion): OUT
  • DT Javon Hargrave (hamstring): Questionable
  • RB Elijah Mitchell (knee): Questionable

A week ago, the 49ers were short both Armstead and Hargrave, which led to the Arizona Cardinals rushing for well over 200 yards against what had previously been a stout run defense.

Hargrave being questionable provides a bit more hope against a Baltimore squad that ranks No. 1 in the league in rushing.
