The Ravens and 49ers battled it out on the biggest stage last night in New Orleans. Joe Flacco led the Ravens to a quick start as they jumped out to a 21-3 lead and went to the locker room up 21-6. Jacoby Jones took the opening second half kickoff 108 yards for a touchdown that put Baltimore up 28-6. Then, in one of the more bizarre moments in Super Bowl history, the Superdome lost power. The game was delayed 34 minutes due to the blackout. The 49ers came storming back and ended up cutting the Baltimore lead to 31-29. The Ravens would kick a field goal to give them a 34-29 lead. The 49ers would get down to the Ravens five yard line but could not punch it home. Baltimore took an intentional safety and went on to win 34-31. More here.
