On Friday I stated the Ravens would win by 3 points in a close game. It sure didn’t start out that way, but it sure ended that way.
It was a Super Bowl of firsts; a fake field goal, a 34 minute power outage in the 3rd quarter, and brother vs brother (John vs. Jim Harbaugh). The half time if anyone cared also saw the reunion of Destiny’s Child (Beyonce and her band mates Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland). It was also the longest Super bowl on record 4 hours and 11 minutes. It was also the final game of Ray Lewis’ storied career and was the break out game of Joe Flacco as one of the elite quarterbacks in the NFL as the Super Bowl MVP. This game also marked the first time a 49er quarterback threw an interception in a Super Bowl (Kaepernick to Ed Reed of the Ravens). Jacoby Jones ran back the second half opening kick off 109 yards for a touchdown which at that point it looked like the game was over.
