The Baltimore Ravens are your Super Bowl XLVII champions as they outlasted Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers, 34-31 in thrilling fashion on Sunday evening.
Quarterback Joe Flacco was the game’s MVP as he had an “elite” performance, completing 22 of 33 passes for 287 yards with three touchdowns to no interceptions.
Caught up in the celebration of having just led the Ravens to their second Super Bowl victory in franchise history, Flacco, 28, dropped an F-bomb and CBS had a camera nearby to catch it and air it live.
Marshal Yanda to Flacco: ”Holy s—, huh?”
Flacco to Yanda: “F—— awesome!”

It’s safe to assume the two players were discussing the nature of the Ravens’ nail-biting victory and the notion of being crowned Super Bowl champions. But then again, the 6-6, 245-pound quarterback just as easily could have been referring to his impending leverage in offseason contract negotiations.

There was a time when the Baltimore Ravens did not seem certain that Joe Flacco would be the quarterback of their future. Of course, they never said this publicly, but the signs were there. Then, suddenly, Flacco led them to the Super Bowl. Now, the Ravens may consider placing the Franchise Tag on the young quarterback. If they do, Flacco will see a nice payday.
Joe Flacco finished this postseason with 11 Touchdowns, 0 interceptions, a Super Bowl ring, and a Super Bowl MVP award. Sounds elite to me. So now that the season is over, attention turns to Flacco and the Ravens as they now have to attempt to get a deal done because of Flacco’s looming free [...]
Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco had a hell of a game in Super Bowl 47, especially the first half, when he threw three touchdown passes and made his team seem unbeatable. For his work — and because the Ravens’ defense didn’t fully crap the bed and let the 49ers come back and win the game — Flacco was named Super Bowl MVP.
After the game, Flacco milled around...
Momentum is not actually a determining factor in sports. Nor is manifest destiny, at least not in the way Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis describes it with God wanting Baltimore to win and then making that outcome happen, by, I don't know, planting atrocious, goal-line pass plays in 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman's brain for that final decisive series.
Nice work, God...
Last year during the offseason, Baltimore Ravens' quarterback Joe Flacco was making wild statements about how he was an “elite” quarterback and the best in the business.He really sounded like he belonged in a nut house than on the football field.Flacco has been one of those quarterbacks that has seen more downs than ups over his career even though he manages to get the Ravens...
Ravens fans, you may now exhale, let out a sigh of relief and celebrate. Congratulations to coach John Harbaugh and the Baltimore Ravens on their hard-fought victory.
If you’ve swallowed your breath all game long, please resume back to your normal breathing functions. Though I understand the 2nd half of Super Bowl 47 will indefinitely be reminisced as the most exhilarating fifteen...
Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens withstood a furious comeback attempt from the 49ers, a 34-minute blackout and the Destiny's Child reunion to win the Super Bowl.
It’s no better way, as a champ, to go out on top and ride off into the sunset. It’s a refreshing story for the greatest middle linebacker of all time, Ray Lewis, who will leave the game in style. He finally gets to the Super Bowl after winning a championship ring 13 years ago as a Raven. He finally rejoices in a gratifying moment, only to be part of team that has a gifted quarterback...
New Orleans, LA (Sports Network) - Joe Flacco unequivocally proved he belongs with the NFL's elite quarterbacks, while John Harbaugh showed that big brother indeed knows best.And for Ray Lewis, it was the ultimate ending to an absoutely illustrious career.Flacco delivered a lights-out performance -- both literally and figuratively -- at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, and the Baltimore...
Last night during Super Bowl 47, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick looked young and showed his first signs of being a little rattled during a game.
Kaepernick still had an awesome game with 302 yards passing and 62 rushing yards. After the game in a move that displays class, maturity, and leadership, Kaepernick put it all on him, and told CSNBay Area that he made to many mistakes...
A power outage at the Super Bowl put the nation's biggest sporting event on hold for more than a half-hour Sunday, interrupting an otherwise electric, back-and-forth game that ended with Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens as NFL champions thanks to a 34-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers.
Flacco, voted the MVP, threw three first-half touchdown passes to cap an 11-TD, zero...
After Ed Reed picked off a pass from 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick a fight broke out. Eventually the scrum was cleared up with offsetting fouls on both teams.
Before trying to establish their ground game, the 49ers will face the key issue of how to deal with an excitable young quarterback guiding their offense. Colin Kaepernick is hoping to become the third player to win a Super Bowl in his second season in the NFL after Tom Brady and Ben Roethlisberger did so in Super Bowls 36 and 40. Their teams took different approaches in each game...
