Despite a shaky second half, the Baltimore Ravens held on to win Super Bowl XLVII by defeating the San Francisco 49ers, 34-31 in New Orleans last night. Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco took home the MVP honors after throwing for 287 yards and three touchdowns.
"They have to give it to one guy and I'm not going to complain that I got it," Flacco told ESPN.com after the game.
With the win, Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis will finish his career as a World Champion.
"It's no greater way, as a champ, to go out on your last ride with the men that I went out with, with my teammates," Lewis said last night after the game. "And you looked around this stadium and Baltimore! Baltimore! We coming home, baby! We did it!"
Ravens’ head coach John Harbaugh was a bit emotional after the game, minutes after defeating his brother Jim (head coach of the San Francisco 49ers).
"It's very tough," John Harbaugh told reporters after the game regarding the mid field handshake with Jim after the game. "It's a lot tougher than I thought it was going to be. It's very painful."
The game was delayed early on in the second half after a power outage occurred inside the Superdome. The delay lasted over an half hour.
