Fake FG - good decision or not?

Can someone who knows more about this game explain it please? Assuming the FG is almost a sure thing from that distance (90%+), the Ravens need to get the first down AND then convert it to a touchdown almost half the time to make it a profitable play. Can they reasonably expect that to happen? Or is there not much difference between 14-3 and 17-3 (SF need 2 TDs either way) so they take the risk trying to go up 18?

I did not like it at all. Why take almost automatic points off the board in such a huge game?

If anything the move might have made sense if it was San Francisco in the same situation ahead or behind. Taking points off the board is a momentum killer, but then again Akers has the only 2 field goals on the board to this point. Still a whole half of football left, but currently the decision impact isn't likely to affect Baltimore.
