Ravens Complete Miracle Season in Holding Off 49ers 34-31 in Super BowlRandy Shawbyline‚ Feb. 04‚ 2013
The Baltimore Ravens shocked the experts and held off the San Francisco 49ers’ late challenge to win the Super Bowl, showing again---as San Francisco Giants fans well know—the power of karma in winning sports titles. The Ravens overcame injuries and almost certain defeat in the last minute of their playoff game against the Denver Broncos to become what many believed was a team of destiny. As Chris “Mad Dog” Russo noted on his national sports talk show on Friday, it’s risky to pick against a team that seems to have karma and destiny on its side (yet Russo did). I knew this game would be tougher than most 49er fans expected, and think Joe Flacco and the Ravens offense were underrated throughout the playoffs. As for the 49ers, they’ll be back in the Super Bowl next year--- and will win.
