The Baltimore Ravens held off the San Francisco 49ers to win their second Super Bowl in their franchise's history at the Superdome in New Orleans last night in a high-scoring thriller of a game. This was only the second Super Bowl game in the history of the league in which each team was able to score more than 30 points each. Ravens QB Joe Flacco also tied a Super Bowl record by throwing three touchdown passes in in the first half of the game. San Francisco kicker David Akers provided the 49ers with their only points in the first half with a pair of field goals, allowing Baltimore to maintain a 21-6 lead at halftime. The beginning of the third quarter seemed to be heading towards a Ravens blowout win after WR Jacoby Jones, a New Orleans native, scored another touchdown with a 108 yard kickoff return. However, soon afterwards the Superdome suffered a power outage, which seemed to slow Baltimore's momentum as San Francisco finished the third quarter with 17 unanswered points. The power outage, which lasted for over half an hour, also resulted in a record-setting four hour and fourteen minute long game, making it the longest Super Bowl in league history. In the fourth quarter, rookie Ravens kicker Justin Tucker added six more points to Baltimore's lead with two field goals. 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick added six points to San Francisco's tally as well with a 15-yard touchdown run, making score 34-29, after his two-point conversion pass failed to find it's target. After Ravens punter Sam Koch was forced into the endzone by 49ers CB Chris Culliver, San Francisco added another two points from the safety to bring them within three points of the Ravens' lead at 34-31. However, with only four seconds left on the clock, the 49ers and their coach Jim Harbaugh could only watch helplessly as brother John Harbaugh and the Ravens took the championship with a final score of 34-31.
