Ravens - 34
49ers - 31
The Ravens got out to an early lead as they started the second half up 28-6. The 49ers made a valiant effort and got within a score on several occasions, but were never able to overtake the Ravens.
Baltimore has certainly had a Cinderella-type postseason as they have been underdogs in their last three straight games only to come away with impressive victories.
The Ravens should be very proud of their recent performances as they hoist the Lombardi Trophy for the second time.
Let's take a look at some key Ravens players who played a major role in this all-important Super Bowl victory.
Grades for players and positional units are based upon the criteria listed below:
An "A" grade is granted to a player who far surpasses the expectations set out for him during the game. This player will absolutely be a key factor to the success of his team.
A "B" grade will be given to a player who plays at an above-average level and contributes throughout the game with very few mistakes.
A "C" grade is handed to a player who has an average game. He may not put up gaudy numbers or be a major contributor, but he will not be the main cause for certain team failures.
A "D" grade will be granted to a player who plays below his ability level. This player would have seen better days on the field and would most likely want a do-over for his performance.
An "F" grade will stick to a player who fails at all levels during a game. He may even be one key factor to a team's struggles, or even its loss.
