Super Bowl XLVII – Baltimore vs. San Francisco

By Kevin Kelley -

Super Bowl XLVIIThe Baltimore Ravens are set to take on the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII. The game is set to kick off at 6:30 p.m. ET on CBS.

Tonight’s game will be played at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in  New Orleans, Louisiana. San Francisco is favored by 4.5 points.

Baltimore (13-6) made it to the Super Bowl after defeating Indianapolis 24-9 in the Wild-Card Round, Denver 38-35 in the Divisional Round, and New England 28-13 in the AFC Championship Game.

San Francisco (13-4-1) had a bye in the first round of the NFL Playoffs. The 49ers then beat Green Bay 45-31 in the Division Round and Atlanta 28-24 in the NFC Championship Game.

Super Bowl XLVII has a very big storyline that most people are talking and writing about. It will be the first Super Bowl to feature opposing head coaching brothers, John Harbaugh (Baltimore) and Jim Harbaugh (San Francisco). The game has been given nicknames such as the Harbaugh Bowl, HarBowl, Super Baugh, Brother Bowl, and Bro Bowl.

Baltimore will be playing in their second Super Bowl. The Ravens beat the New York Giants 34-7 to win Super Bowl XXXV in 2001.

The 49ers have appeared in five Super Bowls and won each time, but haven’t played in the big game since their last win in Super Bowl XXIX (1994). San Francisco also won in 1981 (XVI), 1984 (XIX), 1988 (XXIII), and 1989 (XXIV).
