The Baltimore Ravens held on to top the San Francisco 49ers 34-31 in Super Bowl XLVII. The game was a closely-fought battle that started out looking like a blowout until it was interrupted by a power outage at the Superdome. The Ravens were ahead by 28-6 when play was halted due to the power outage that lasted 35 minutes.

When power was restored, the 49ers suddenly were also energized, scoring 17 straight points to trim the gap to 28-23 going into the fourth period.

Tucker hit a 19-yard field goal to give the Ravens a 31-23 lead in the fourth period. He later hit a 38-yarder with 4:19 remaining after the 49ers cut the deficit to 31-29 to secure their second Super Bowl title.

Joe Flacco, who won the Super Bowl MVP trophy, completed 22 of 33 passes for 287 yards and three touchdowns and no interceptions while Jacoby Jones set a Super Bowl-record 108-yard kickoff return for a touchdown.

Flacco delivered three touchdowns in the first half while Jones added a record run to give the Ravens a 28-6 lead early in the third period and looked headed for an easy win before the lights went out.
