The Baltimore Ravens defeated the San Francisco 49ers to win Super Bowl XLVII, 34-31, in one of the most bizarre big games in league history.
Joe Flacco threw for 287 yards and three touchdowns to earn the game’s MVP award. The University of Delaware product tied a postseason record with 11 touchdowns passes – a mark previously set by Joe Montana during the 1989 playoffs.
San Francisco left a ton of plays on the field including their final possession, which included four plays in a goal to go situation.
Baltimore held on fourth down on a controversial non-call in the end zone when Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith appeared to hold Michael Crabtree.
Nonetheless, Baltimore earned its second Lombardi Trophy and sent Ray Lewis off into the sunset…34-minute power outage in the third quarter be damned.
