In what was an exciting first half the Ravens showed that they mean business with a balanced attack where QB Joe Flacco has not been shy about throwing downfield. This includes a hail-mary pass that almost hit the scoreboard it was thrown so high.
The 49ers looked a little nervous to start the game with several miscues that hurt early. Kaepernick showed his inexperience a little bit when he through his first pick of the playoffs.
The 49ers have shown that they can come back from being down but this is the Super Bowl so it will not be easy. In fact no team has ever come back from 18 down on SB history.

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's ability to be an elite QB has been questioned all season. I've been one that has doubted his ability all regular season and throughout the playoffs. Has anyone, including me, changed our opinions heading into the Super Bowl?

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...

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.
