The lasting memory from this game will not be that John Harbaugh defeated his younger brother, Jim, or that Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis ended his career with a championship. It’ll be that Baltimore survived an unexplainable collapse — defeating the 49ers, 34-31 — by leaning on its most dependable presence, quarterback Joe Flacco. After the black out, the 49ers were revamped and started to make an unbelievable recovery. It seemed that fate was leaning towards San Francisco's favor, since the black out happened at a very conveniant time for them. At the last minute, Baltimore was able to hold off the 49er revenge hoard.
“We don’t make anything easy,” said Flacco, who was named the Super Bowl’s most valuable player after his 287-yard passing performance.
Today, many San Francisco fans are sad and dissapointed, but at the same time, hopeful for next season. Let's take a look at all the best Super Bowl XLVII moments.
The First touchdown of the game.
It was the first score of the game and was an excellent example of the touch and timing Flacco has displayed during his impressive 2013 postseason performance.
The Mysterious and Famous Black out.
Shortly following Jones' return, the sudden, odd power outage arrived. Escalators weren't working. Officials stopped play at approximately 1min into the third quarter, and the bizarre delay lasted 34 minutes in real time before action resumed. Some players sat. Others stretched. Some fans chanted, "Let's go, Ravens!" Others passed time by doing the wave
History was made when two brothers competed against each other in the Super Bowl
After the Black out. The 49ers started to close the gap.
Jonsey Jones made the longest return run in History.
The 49ers didn't go down with out a fight.
Kaepernick didn’t zip it to his receiver as he did for much of the first half. Rather, he lofted it up over the head of the linebacker and put it where only his receiver would have a shot at it.
Like always, there were some bad calls made.
The other one was when Crabtree was in the inzone, last quarter, and there was evident holding from the defense. Should have been a holding call, with a redo on 4th down. Instead the ref's let it slip claiming that Crabtree was playing rough as well.

In short, Flacco is a man, Kappernick is the cute kid you have a crush on in high school but you will never date him because he's too young.
