Team: Baltimore Ravens



The former BYU tight end had the best playoff performance of his three-year career. Pitta had five catches for 55 yards, tying his career playoff best, and a touchdown. His 5-yard score, with 6:14 to go in the third quarter, put the Ravens ahead for good.


Pitta also had a touchdown against the Patriots in last year's AFC championship game and during the regular season this year against New England.



Pitta nearly had another touchdown in the first half, when he caught a pass one-handed in the end zone but couldn't get both feet in.

Alex Smith mentioned; "I am happy for the 49er's." Reading between the lines as in;
"I am as good as gone." The 49er's won't pay him the $8 million dollar signing bonus he is
due in the spring to be a back up. Go Niner's! I've loved ya for 47 years now.
