RAVENS WITHSTAND FURIOUS SECOND HALF NINERS RALLY AS SAN FRANCISCO COMES UP SHORT 34-31
AP) — The Ravens used a last-gasp defensive stand to hold off the San Francisco 49ers 34-31 and capture their second Super Bowl title in 12 years.
Game MVP Joe Flacco threw for three touchdowns while helping Baltimore build a 21-6 halftime advantage.
Flacco says it is an amazing feeling to be a Super Bowl Champion...
Then, not long after Jacoby (jah-KOH'-bee) Jones opened the second half with a 108-yard kickoff return that increased the Ravens' lead to 28-6, a power outage held up play for 34 minutes.
Ravens head coach John Harbaugh says he knew the 49ers would gather themselves and make it a game after the outage.....
The Niners regrouped, and Colin Kaepernick (KAP'-ur-nihk) directed four second-half scoring drives.
The Niners' final touchdown cut the deficit to 31-29. They missed a two-point conversion try before Baltimore added a late field goal and then took a safety in the final seconds.
Wide receiver Michael Crabtree says the 49ers didn't capitalize on all their opportunities....
49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh says his team made a nice comeback, but just dug themselves too big of a hole to get the win....
It is San Francisco's first loss in six Super Bowl appearances.
It was Baltimore linebacker Ray Lewis' final game after a 17-year pro career.
