Harbowl 2011 Score: 49ers Tied 3-3 With Ravens Thanks To Alex Smith-Vernon Davis Connection

After the San Francisco 49ers offense were forced to go three-and-out against the Baltimore Ravens defense trailing 3-0 early in the first quarter, the 49ers defense made a strong response. Ray Rice managed eight rushing yards on the first two carries to set up a 3rd and short, but Joe Flacco threw an incomplete pass to Anquan Boldin and the Ravens were forced to punt.

The 49ers finally started to march down the field. Frank Gore had two nice gains for four yards to set up a 3rd and short, and Alex Smith managed to find Vernon Davis hitting the right flat for a 20 yard gain. Smith then hit Ted Ginn Jr. on a sweep pattern for nine yards to set up a 2nd and short, and Frank Gore managed another first down carry. Smith was sacked on 3rd down on the next set of plays, and David Akers had to come in and hit a game-tying 45 yard field goal.

We're all tied up at 3 in the Harbowl after one quarter.
