Ravens Top Niners For Super Bowl 47 Title

Joe Flacco tossed for 287 yards and three first-half touchdowns as the Ravens held off the 49ers 34-31 in Super Bowl 47 at the Superdome. Flacco was named the game's MVP. Anquan Boldin had six catches for 104 yards and a TD for Baltimore, which was ahead 28-6 prior to a power outage early in the third quarter. Jacoby Jones added a 56-yard TD reception and a 108-yard kickoff return for a score, which is the longest play in Super Bowl history. Baltimore linebacker Ray Lewis made seven tackles in his final NFL game. This is the franchise's second Super Bowl championship, with their first coming at Super Bowl 35 in 2001. Colin Kaepernick threw for 302 yards, a TD and an interception for the Niners. He added 62 yards and a score on the ground, but Frank Gore was San Francisco's leading rusher with 110 yards and a touchdown. Michael Crabtree hauled in five balls for 109 yards and a touchdown, while Vernon Davis chipped in with six grabs for 104 yards in San Francisco's first-ever Super Bowl loss.

What happened? It's a classic case of two all-too-common phenomena in the world of government--unintended consequences and the revolving door.
