The Baltimore Ravens outlasted the San Francisco 49ers last night to win Super Bowl 47. The Ravens controlled the first half, leading 21-6 at the break on three touchdown passes from Joe Flacco. The Ravens came storming out of the gate in the second half on a Jacoby Jones 108-yard kick-off return for a touchdown, but after a bizarre power outage, the 49ers would comeback behind 17 unanswered points. In the fourth, the 49ers would score on a Colin Kaepernick 15-yard touchdown run, but a two-point conversion would fail leaving a two-point deficit for San Francisco. After a Baltimore field goal, San Francisco would drive down the field, but fail to score on fourth and goal and ultimately fall to the Ravens. The win gives Baltimore their second Super Bowl.
