Full Report-Card Grades for Super Bowl XLVII

The advance script for Super Bowl XLVII had been written: The 49ers, better than the Ravens in almost every phase of the game, were going to ride the arm and/or legs of quarterback Colin Kaepernick to glory.

Opinions differed on by how much the 49ers would win; some hardy souls even predicted a narrow Ravens win. But the Ravens flipped the script, taking a commanding 21-6 lead in the first half. They extended it early in the third quarter with a 108-yard kickoff return, and everything looked to be over.

After the Superdome suffered a partial power outage, San Francisco found its copy of the original script, going on a furious 23-3 run.

In the end, the Ravens held on by tips of their claws, securing a 34-31 win.

How'd they do it? Who stepped up in Super Bowl XLVII and who faltered? Find out, with our full grades for every 49ers and Ravens unit.
