Who's to Blame for the San Francisco 49ers' Super Bowl XLVII Loss?

The Baltimore Ravens are Super Bowl XLVII champions after beating the San Francisco 49ers in one of the strangest 34-31 outcomes the NFL has ever seen.

For those who thought that all the hubbub leading up to Sunday night's matchup would outshine the game itself, think again. The 34-minute power outage inside the New Orleans Superdome will be talked about for quite a while.

The action on the field was pretty amazing as well.

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco was named MVP after completing 66.7 percent of his passes for 287 yards and three touchdowns, finishing the postseason with 1,140 yards, 11 touchdowns and zero interceptions.

Jacoby Jones shone in the passing game with a 56-yard score and also on special teams with a 108-yard kickoff return for a touchdown to begin the second half.

Wide receiver Anquan Boldin also came through with some big plays, finishing with six catches for 104 yards and a touchdown.

While credit must be given to Baltimore for coming out on top, the 49ers did themselves zero favors in this game.
