Week 16 of the NFL season concludes with one of the season’s biggest matchups: the (11-3) Baltimore Ravens traveling to northern California to take on (11-3) San Francisco 49ers on “Monday Night Football.” Kickoff is set for 7:15 p.m. (Arrowhead Time) on ABC — locally on KMBC/9. Joe Buck, Troy Aikman and Lisa Salters will have the call.

If the season ended today, each team would hold the No. 1 seed in their conference — and each is one game ahead of its nearest competitor. The Ravens pull into town after winning four straight games — most recently, a 23-7 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. The 49ers have won their last six matchups. In Week 15, they recorded a 45-29 victory over the Arizona Cardinals.

According to DraftKings Sportbook, the 49ers are favored by six points.

Here are our picks for Monday night’s game. Be sure to cast your vote, too — and discuss the game in the comments!
