The San Francisco 49ers experienced a resounding defeat at the hands of the Baltimore Ravens, with a final score of 33-19.
Following the disappointing loss, Christian McCaffrey’s fiancée, Olivia Culpo, shared a text from the running back’s mother, suggesting a quirky reason for the team’s poor performance. McCaffrey’s mom believed that not taking a pre-game pyramid photo may have been the culprit, promising to buy any extravagant designer tennis shoes for the next game if they partake in the ritual. She added humorously, “Or I’ll carry your nice shoes so you can switch them out after the pyramid. Sorry, but it’s for the team.”
Despite the team’s overall struggles, McCaffrey delivered an impressive performance, rushing 14 times for 103 yards and securing a touchdown. Additionally, he contributed six receptions for 28 yards from 10 targets, showcasing his versatility.
While the loss was disheartening, McCaffrey reached a personal milestone by achieving a new single-season rushing record of 1,395 yards through 15 games, surpassing his previous mark of 1,387 yards in the 2019 season with the Panthers.
Looking ahead, the 49ers aim to rebound against the Washington Commanders, potentially solidifying their position as the No. 1 seed in the NFC.
