The participants for Super Bowl XLVII are set, as the Baltimore Ravens will take on the San Francisco in New Orleans in two weeks.
While it may not have been the exact matchup that everyone expected, this game will feature plenty of storylines and dynamic players to keep things interesting.
Brothers John and Jim Harbaugh will be the hot topic leading up to the contest, while the incredible career of Ravens' linebacker Ray Lewis is extended for one more game. Not to mention the quarterback play, as Joe Flacco looks to continue his postseason hot streak and Colin Kaepernick wants to further exhibit that his head coach made the right decision by choosing him over Alex Smith for the stretch run.
The Ravens avenged last year's AFC Championship loss with a 28-13 win over the New England Patriots on Sunday evening.
Behind Flacco's 240 yards and three touchdowns, and some timely defensive stops, Baltimore was able to handle New England for a second time this season (the Ravens beat the Patriots 31-30 back in Week 3).
The 49ers, however, had a much different path to the Super Bowl as they fell behind 17-0 early to the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday afternoon. But second-half defensive adjustments, coupled with a consistent rushing attack allowed San Francisco to notch a 28-24 victory.
As unpredictable as the NFL is, this year's Super Bowl has the potential to be as enthralling as the best of years past. Let's take a look at some of the particulars of this game.
