Goat of the week- Mercedes-Benz Superdome


Once the second half of the Super Bowl began, the power went out for over 30 minutes.  The delay of the game halted all momentum that the Ravens had, especially after a 108 yard kick return from Jacoby Jones.  After the power came back, San Francisco re-grouped and scored 25 points in comparison to Baltimore’s 6.  The power outage nearly spurred the largest comeback in Super Bowl history.


Quote- “There’s no question in my mind that there was a pass interference and then a hold,” Jim Harbaugh


The Ravens won the game on a goal line stand.  At 4th and goal, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kapernick threw a pass under pressure to Michael Crabtree. The ball sailed out of bounds, but there was some contact between Crabtree and Ravens’ cornerback Jimmy Smith. No flag was thrown.  If it had, the 49ers would have had a new set of downs.  Jim Harbaugh refused to talk to the media after the game.
