In a game that took over four hours and saw everything from a controversial non-call to the longest play in Super Bowl history, there is plenty to dissect from last night's big game in the Big Easy.

The Ravens and 49ers were expected to compete in a physical and defensive struggle, but the game evolved into a surprising shootout.   

Baltimore rode the arm of Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco to a 21-6 halftime lead. Flacco tossed three touchdown passes and finished the playoffs without throwing a single interception.  

The Ravens appeared to be running away with a rout early in the second half, but then a 34-minute power outage inexplicably swung momentum in the San Francisco 49ers' favor, leading to a dramatic fourth-quarter finish.

Baltimore's big-play offense and timely contributions from special teams and defense ultimately proved too much for the 49ers to handle. Meanwhile, San Francisco will have plenty to second-guess, from questionable play-calling to uncharacteristic penalties.

From the extraordinary to the bizarre, here are 10 of the most memorable plays of Super Bowl XLVII.
