The Baltimore Ravens have returned to the proverbial ‘top of the mountain’ in the NFL as they hoisted the Vince Lombardi trophy for the second time in franchise history after defeating the 49ers 34-31in Super Bowl XLVII. This Super Bowl was definitely one to remember with the game beginning with what looked like a rout as the Ravens scored 21 points to the 49ers six points in the first half. Soon after the start of the second half the Ravens’ Jacoby Jones returned a kickoff for an NFL record tying 108 yards. Baltimore’s fiery start was thwarted by a power surge in the Superdome which decommissioned roughly half of the stadium’s lights shortly after the start of the third quarter. The outage lasted approximately 34 minutes and only added an even greater amount of suspense to the already thrilling ball game. After power was restored and play resumed San Francisco went on a 17 point scoring run that put the team within five points with a score of 28-23 heading into the fourth quarter. The 49ers relentless attack on both offense and defense catapulted the game to a gut wrenching 34-31score with four seconds remaining after Ravens kicker Sam Koch ran out of the end zone for a safety to burn the clock and the decrease the 49ers chances of scoring on another drive. The game ended with the Ravens stopping the 49ers punt return at about midfield as time expired reported NFL.com. An ecstatic yet humble Ray Lewis said this when asked for his remarks on his team winning the Super Bowl, “When God is for you, who can be against you?” This statement articulated clearly what Lewis’ and the Ravens’ journey has been throughout the 2012 season as they confronted and overcame every obstacle that they encountered. Ray Lewis ended his career on a high note with a team high 51 tackles in the postseason and lifted the Lombardi trophy once again at the culmination of his 17 year career. Joe Flacco was named MVP of the Super Bowl after completing 22 of 33 passes for 287 yards and three touchdowns, according to ESPN.com. He did not throw any interceptions in the postseason. The Baltimore Ravens are the champions of the NFL after winning Super Bowl XLVII.
