Why Beyonce? Why not? As we recap the Ravens' 34-31 victory over the 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII, here's five amazing stats to take away from the game.1. Jacoby Jones' 290 Total YardsWho saw this coming? Not me, that's for sure.Jacoby Jones was the difference in this game, hauling in a 56-yard touchdown pass from Joe Flacco and returning a kickoff 108 yards for a touchdown. You and I know that while Jones is a capable receiver and a Pro Bowl return man, the Ravens weren't counting on him for one score, let alone two, in the Super Bowl. Jacoby Jones' 290 total yards qualifies as the most amazing stat of Super Bowl 47. 2.

Nice work, God...
