In one of the most bizzare, unique and exciting superbowls of all time, The Baltimore Ravens prevailed over the San Fransisco 49ers winning 34-31 in New Orleans on Sunday Feb 3rd, 2013.
Dubbed as the Harbowl, this superbowl featured the first matchup of two brothers (John and Jim Harbough) both as the head coaches of the opposing teams. John the younger brother and coach of the Ravens jumped out to a fast start and a 21-6 halftime lead. However the Ravens were supremely tested by a furious second half comeback by the 9ers. The game ended after a bizzare half an hour power outage at the Superdome, a wild final few minutes that featured several questionable officiating calls, and finally a goal line stand by Ray Lewis and the Baltimore defense that prevented the go ahead score by Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers.
This win was a fitting end to the career of one of the most decorated and unforgettable middle line backers in NFL history. (13 Pro Bowls, 10 All Pro Teams and twice the NFL Defensive Player of the Year).
Raw Lewis who has anchored the highly regarded Baltimore defense for the past 17 years will go down as one of the best defenders of all time. His leadership and contributions to the league are well known and it only seems fitting for Ray to end his storied career by going out a Superbowl Champion.
