NEW ORLEANS Ã¢â‚¬â€œ TheÃ‚Â Baltimore RavensÃ‚Â shook off an unprecedentedÃ‚Â Superdome blackoutÃ‚Â and a near improbable second-half comeback by theÃ‚Â San Francisco 49ers, to hold on and capture one of the greatest, and certainly wildest, Super Bowls 34-31.
In the end it was the aged, but still game, Ravens defense that delivered one final goal-line stand to clinch victory. A fourth-down pass from Niners quarterbackÃ‚Â Colin KaepernickÃ‚Â sailed long with 1:46 to play, allowing Baltimore to hold on.
In a game full of huge momentum swings and electric, back-and-forth plays, everything seemed to turn on a 33-minute, third-quarter power outage at the Superdome.
The Ravens led 28-6 early in the third quarter, riding the momentum of a 108-yardÃ‚Â Jacoby Joneskickoff return for a score before the Superdome lost power, casting the field in darkness, shutting off the air conditioning and delaying the game for over half an hour before order was restored.
