Ravens Super Again

Monday, February 04, 2013


In the end, it was lights out for San Francisco.

On a night when the power went out at the Super Dome in New Orleans prompting a 34-minute delay in Super Bowl 47, the Baltimore Ravens perserveared and hung on to defeat the San Francisco 49ers 34-31.

Before the lights went out, the Ravens dominated play leading 21-6 at halftime.  

To make matters worse for the 49ers, Baltimore's Jacoby Jones set a Super Bowl record by returning the kickoff to start the second half a Super Bowl-record 108 yards for a touchdown making the score 28-6.

It was shortly thereafter that the lights went out in half of the Super Dome causing a 34-minute delay which seemed to take the momentum away from the Ravens and give the 49ers time to regroup.

When play resumed, San Francisco came storming back with crisp offensive execution and solid defense.

After Colin Kaepernick ran one in from 15-yards out with 9:57 to play in the 4th, the Niners trailed by only two points 31-29.

San Francisco failed to execute the two-point conversion to tie the game up.

A Justin Tucker field goal with 4:19 to play put Baltimore up 34-29, but the Niners marched the ball down the field once again.

However, Baltimore's veteran defense rose to the occassion in the game's final minutes making a goal line stand preserving the win.

The win lifts Baltimore's all-time mark to 2-0 in Super Bowl games.  San Francisco suffered its first loss in franchise history and is now 5-1 in the big game.

Super Bowl 47 also marked the end of the illustrious career of Ray Lewis who goes out on top as a Super Bowl champion.
