The Baltimore Ravens were seeking revenge for their 23-20 loss in last year's AFC Championship game.  They would get revenge by dominating the second half to defeat the Patriots, 28-13.  After trailing 13-7 at the half, it was all Ravens in the second half, shutting the Patriots out 21-0 to move on to the Super Bowl, or should I say the "HarBowl."  The Harbaugh brothers will face each other in two weeks for Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans as the Ravens will take on the 49ers.  Joe Flacco made a name for himself by completely outplaying three-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady in the second half.  The Patriots were 67-0 at home with Brady at quarterback when leading at halftime. Make that 67-1 following Sunday's loss.  The Patriots were also 4-0 at home in AFC Championship games.  The Ravens ended both those streaks by stunning New England for the second time this season.After scoring a touchdown to take an eight point lead to start the fourth quarter, Stevan Ridley would have a pivotal fumble that gave the Ravens the ball back.  Baltimore capitalized on the turnover and put the game away with another touchdown and would hang on to win by two touchdowns.  The Patriots offense was inept in the second half as the Ravens defense forced that fumble along with two interceptions by Brady.  Ray Lewis is a game away from ending his career with his second Super Bowl title.  What a story it has been for the second greatest defensive player in NFL history behind Lawrence Taylor.  Lewis and the Ravens will take on Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers in what should be an incredible Super Bowl matchup.  Jim and John Harbaugh will look to coach each of their respective teams to a Vince Lombardi Trophy.Here are the five things we learned from the Ravens 28-13 victory over the Patriots.
