Ravens beat 49ers

NEW ORLEANS, Louisiana - In a Super Bowl that went from blowout to blackout to shootout, the Baltimore Ravens held on to edge the San Francisco 49ers 34-31 yesterday in one of the most thrilling NFL deciders ever.

A power outage at the New Orleans Superdome early in the second-half stopped America's biggest sporting event for more than half an hour and threatened to rob the Ravens of their momentum, having just established a 22-point lead.

After the interruption, the 49ers stormed back, cutting the deficit to just two points but Baltimore hung on as San Francisco came so close to the go-ahead score.

The 49ers had first-and-goal in their final drive, trailing by five points, but quarterback Colin Kaepernick could not connect with a receiver. The Ravens gave away a safety to run down the clock, making it 34-31 and while San Francisco had one last chance on the subsequent kick-off return, returner Ted Ginn Jr was quickly swallowed up by Ravens tacklers.
