Super bowl 47 -
Like any year and every season. we eventually come to the season finally and the super bowl. this year the Baltimore ravens and the San Fransisco 49ers made it all the way to meet in the final showdown at new Orleans for super bowl 47.
After the 2012 season that was considered a great year. expectations were high from the team.the 49ers re-signed the not so great quarterback Alex smith. and they also got the legendary Randy Moss and Mario Manning-ham for their offensive side.the start was good.really good, they after half of season behind them they were at 6-2 wining big.at week 10 after suffering from a concussion against the saint Louis rams Quarterback Alex smith left the team and left the position for the second year man Colin Kaepernick.the game ended in a tie ( the first one for the 49ers in over 20 years ).
in the next game Kaepernick led the team to a blowout victory against the Chicago bears 32-7. the head coach was impressed and decided to give him another chance. Colin started the next game against the new Orleans saint although Alex smith was healthy. he led the team to a win 31-21 and landed the starting position. they went and finished the season with a 11-4 record during the playoff’s kaepernick exploded on the field against the green bay packers with a 45-31 win and a new NFL record of 181 rushing yards that is the most for a quarterback ever in a single game.in the NFC championship they defeated the Atlanta falcons and made their way to super bowl 47.
The Baltimore ravens started the year with an impressive 9-2 winning record in-spite to massive injuries on the defense side.after this they suffered a three game loosing streak but still made it to the playoff and finished the year with a 10-6 record. the media started writing about their ability to win matches as the ravens always considered a loosing team. they prove everybody wrong when crushing the defending super bowl champions the new york giants 33-14 and won the division title for the second straight year.this year will be remembered as the last year for Ray Lewis after he announced his retirement after this year.many thought the timing of the Ray Lewis announcement was selfish but teammates and other great players around the league said he is a motivational genius and the timing of his announcement was just in the nick of time giving the team a shot of adrenaline.during the playoffs the Baltimore team had some great wins one in particular was the game against the Denver broncos when they won in a second over time 38-35. after that they have defeated the new England patriots and made their way to super bowl 47.
Super bowl 47 was the heavy weight title of the world with two teams that have lots of heart in one side..and lots of skill on the other..San Fransisco brought the skill with young quarterback Colin keapernick crushing opponents with his feet and rocked arm. and on the other side you have Flaco experience and cool attitude not falling under the pressure. this was also the first championship game in history where two brothers will play against each other, Jim and Jon Harbaugh the game had a blowing start to experience with ravens leading ha head at halftime with lots of points. but in the second half the 49ers got back to the action and almost made an unbelievable comeback but eventually lost the game 34 – 31 and Joe Flaco finally won his first super bowl ever and the super bowl MVP.
