Baltimore Ravens win Super Bowl XLVII
The Baltimore Ravens won Super Bowl 47against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.
The Baltimore Ravens are the World Champions of American Football. They beat the San Fransisco 49ers 34-31.
Before power at the Superdome oddly went out after the Super Bowl Halftime Show, putting the nation’s biggest sporting event on hold for more than a half an hour Sunday, Joe Flacco’s three touchdown passes and Jacoby Jones’ 108-yard kickoff return gave the Baltimore Ravens a sizable lead over the San Francisco 49ers that stood at 28-6.
The biggest deficit a team has ever overcome to win a Super Bowl is 10 points. But the 49ers were determined to come back. They were seeking to join the Pittsburgh Steelers as the onlyNational Football League team with six Super Bowl wins.
When the power came back on, so did the 49ers offense. During the third quarter, although the Ravens were still in the lead, the 49ers had managed a 31-23 catch up in less than 4 and a half minutes, and then scored again to make the score a close 31-29 at the beginning of the fourth quarter.
Fortunately for the Ravens, they held the 49ers to a 4th down in the red zone, one Kaepernick couldn't convert into a touchdown. Forcing a field goal, The Ravens got the ball back and were able to wait out the clock until time ran out.
The Ravens also won in their only prior trip to the Super Bowl, after the 2000 season.
