Super Bowl 47
Feb. 3, 2013
At New Orleans-71,024
San Francisco 3..3.17.8-31
Baltimore survived a power outage at the Superdome to edge San Francisco.
Baltimore's Joe Flacco, the game's MVP, threw three first-half touchdown passes to give the Ravens a 21-6 lead at halftime. Flacco's 13-yard TD pass to Anquan Boldin, a 1-yarder Dennis Pitta and a 56-yarder to Jacoby Jones tied a Super Bowl record.
Jones seemed to put the game away with his record 108-yard touchdown on the second-half kickoff.
Soon after, the lights went out - and when they came back on, the Ravens were almost powerless to slow the 49ers. When action resumed 34 minutes later, Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers scored 17 consecutive points.
Michael Crabtree's 31-yard touchdown reception on which he broke two tackles made it 28-13. A couple of minutes later, Frank Gore's 6-yard run followed a 32-yard punt return by Ted Ginn Jr., and the 49ers were within eight.
Kaepernick's 15-yard TD run made it 31-29. A 2-point conversion pass failed when the Ravens blitzed.
Tucker added a 38-yard field goal with 4:19 remaining, setting up a frantic finish.
Kaepernick couldn't get the 49ers into the end zone on the final three plays from inside the Ravens 5, and Ravens punter Sam Koch took a safety for the final score with 4 seconds left. Koch's free kick was returned by Ginn to midfield as time ran out.
