Ravens soar high with a 34-31 win over the 49ers

New Orleans – Baltimore Ravens ar the super bowl 47 NFL champions with a 34-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers at the Mercedes benz superdome in New Orleans. Flacco, voted the MVP, threw three first-half touchdown passes to cap an 11-TD, zero-interception postseason. To get to the Super Bowl, Flacco already led the Ravens past Denver’s Peyton Manning and New England’s Tom Brady for two of his league-record six career postseason road victories by a quarterback.

San Francisco turned over the ball twice in about a 5-minute span of the second quarter: Rookie running back LaMichael James fumbled — leading to a Ravens TD — and safety Ed Reed tied an NFL record with his ninth career postseason interception by picking off Kaepernick.

Before the game began, a chorus of 26 children from Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut where 20 students and six adults were killed in a shooting rampage in December sang “America the Beautiful,” accompanied by Jennifer Hudson. Grammy winner Alicia Keys performed the national anthem. When asked to comment about the win, Ravens Ray Lewis stated; “if God be for you, who can be against you”?
