Super Bowl XLVII

Ravens Pull Out Narrow Win

A power surge that killed the lights at the Superdome in New Orleans just moments into the second half of Super Bowl XLVII seemed to turn around the fortunes of the San Francisco 49ers, who proceeded to score 17 points in a four-minute period. Knocked on their heels, the Baltimore Ravens could only manage a pair of field goals as 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick set a Super Bowl record with a 15-yard touchdown. But Baltimore was in luck: the 49ers hit a snag in the fourth quarter when they were unable to score despite driving to the Baltimore 5-yard line. The Ravens were able to hold them off and run out the clock to win 34–31.
