Here's all the information you'll need to get the most out of the matchup, including local players to keep an eye on, television schedules and where to watch the game close to home.

Look for Ahmad Brooks, a 49ers linebacker who attended the University of Virginia, C.D Hylton High School in Woodbridge and Hargrave Military Academy. (See Brooks’ bio here). He was born in Fairfax.

Read Patch interviews with Ahmad Brooks' sister and his high school coach.

Torrey Smith, a wide receiver for Baltimore, lived in Fredericksburg and graduated from Stafford High. (See Smith's bio here.)

Joining Brooks is Cam Johnson, a San Francisco rookie linebacker. He also attended the University of Virginia and went to Gonzaga College High School in Washington. (See Johnson’s bio here.)

Ravens fans have to be hoping not to see Tyrod Taylor, who attended Virginia Tech and went to high school at Hampton High School in Hampton. (See Taylor’s bio here.) Why are Ravens fans rooting against his appearance? He's the backup quarterback.
