The Baltimore Ravens have won Super Bowl XLVII, Joe Flacco was voted MVP. In a Super Bowl which will mainly be remembered for a lengthy power outage, the Ravens came out on top after surviving a late comeback attempt by the 49-ers who didn't lead at all in the game.
Ravens Quarterback Joe Flacco earned MVP honors after completing 22-of-33 pass attempts for 287 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions.
The Ravens opened a 28-6 third-quarter lead at the Superdome in New Orleans when half the lights in the Superdome went out for a unknown reason. The 49ers attempted what would have been the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history but it failed when they didn't to convert a fourth-and-goal from the Baltimore 5-yard line with less than two minutes remaining in the game.
With under two minutes to go the 49ers defense would force a punt, but the Ravens had drained so much of the clock, John Harbaugh had punter Sam Koch run in the end zone to milk more time before taking a safety with four seconds remaining.
Ginn fielded the ensuing free kick, but was tackled at midfield as the final whistle sounded and the celebration could start for Baltimore.
It was the second Super Bowl title for Baltimore, following their championship in the 2000 season. Joe Flacco threw three first-half touchdown passes for Baltimore (14-6), which was a 3 1/2-point underdog, according to odds makers before the game started.
