The 'Harbaugh' is now over with, and it was surely the most exciting game in recent memory.After the most intense 60-minutes from this season, Ray Lewis and the Baltimore Ravens managed to win their first Super Bowl in over a decade with a final score of 34-31.It couldn't have been written any better, as it came down to the last minute. Play after play was made, and if you just watched a highlight reel without being told the score, you would have no idea who won the game.With that said, winners and losers aside, what were the top 5 plays from Super Bowl XLVII?

Ray Lewis does his dance during celebration

There was no perfect time for Ray Lewis to do another final dance then at M&T Bank Stadium during the Super Bowl Parade.  Lewis got the perfect send off to end his career with a Super Bowl victory and he will certainly enjoy it.  Something tells me though that Lewis will continue doing this dance any chance he gets, even on air if he ends up working for ESPN as an Analyst.Lewis...

Baltimore Cop Does Ray Lewis Squirrel Dance

Right after the Baltimore Ravens won the Super Bowl, a fan captured a female cop outside of an unnamed bar doing Ray Lewis’ famous “squirrel dance.” It’s a pretty weak version of the dance, but we’ll give her an A for effort. She should’ve taken notes from Denver Mayor Michael Hancock. [BustedCoverage] var conf_58641 = { APIKey: '2_N1YlfjHIEAtyRAK3CAYRE5a1aBuANuMOCLc_7hsOQ1...

Lewis ends NFL career in championship fashion

So, Ray Lewis, now that you've won a Super Bowl, what's next? No, he's not going to that amusement park. The Baltimore Ravens linebacker is heading into retirement - and he can't wait.

Lights Out! Ravens, Flacco Sends Ray Lewis Out On Top

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...

Ravens' journey ends on top

The journey couldn't have ended any better for a team that embraced storied linebacker Ray Lewis and his "last ride" into retirement -- even if it took the Baltimore Ravens an extra 34 minutes to get there because of an in-game power outage at the Superdome. The 49ers mounted a furious comeback when the stadium lights came back on early in the third quarter, but the...

A quick look at the stories surrounding the Super Bowl

I don’t know if you noticed, but I generally avoided discussing all the little storylines associated with the Super Bowl this year. In my mind, many of them are irrelevant, and a lot of them are annoying, Let’s cut through all of them from least pertinent/most annoying to the most pertinent/least annoying. - Ray Lewis is retiring: He is still playing in this game, right? Right...

Ravens won't be distracted from task

When the Baltimore Ravens arrived in New Orleans on Monday night, they more than likely expected the culmination of the month-long Ray Lewis Farewell Tour that the media had been throwing him since the start of the postseason.
