NEW ORLEANS — The Baltimore Ravens are Super Bowl champions for a second time, beating the San Francisco 49ers 34-31 Sunday night in Super Bowl XLVII.
John Harbaugh’s Ravens beat his brother Jim Harbaugh’s 49ers in a game that will long be remembered for the 34-minute power outage that occurred just after Jacoby Jones had electrified the stadium by returning the opening kick of the second half 108 yards for a touchdown and a 28-6 lead.
Following the delay, San Francisco rallied with 17 unanswered points to get within 28-23, then made it 31-29 later. In the end, with San Francisco just five yards away a go-ahead touchdown, the Ravens defense held on 4th down.
Kevin Harlan and Boomer Esiason called the action on Westwood One Sports.
