The Baltimore Ravens defeated the San Francisco 49ers 34-31 to win Super Bowl XLVII at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.

Sunday's appeared to be a blowout, with the Ravens leading 21-6 at the half.

Baltimore's Jacoby Jones opened the second half with a Super Bowl record 108-yard kickoff return for a touchdown.

A power outage a short time later interrupted play for 34 minutes and seemed to revive the 49ers, who answered with 17 points in the 3rd quarter and 8 more points in the 4th quarter.

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, who was voted the game's Most Valuable Player, finished with 22 completions on 33 attempts for 287 yards, with three touchdowns. EFE
