NEW ORLEANS — Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens were turning the Super Bowl into a blowout when, without warning, the power went off in Superdome. When the game resumed 34 minutes later, it was the San Francisco 49ers who were playing lights out. Instead of a blowout, the blackout turned the big game into a shootout. The Ravens survived the frenzied comeback by the 49ers for a thrilling 34-31 win Sunday night and their second NFL championship in 11 years. “How could it be any other way? It’s never pretty. It’s never perfect. But it’s us,” Coach John Harbaugh said after winning the sibling showdown with younger brother Jim. “It was us today.” The San Francisco 49ers were 5-0 in Super bowl matchup’s heading into Sunday’s game. Many people believe that the refs had stolen the game from the 49ers on that being there was “supposedly” a holding call on 49er receiver Michael Crabtree. This game was also the “send-out game” for Raven Linebacker Ray Lewis.
