RAVENS 34 NINERS 31 IN SUPER BOWL 47

NEW ORLEANS - A power outage at the Super Bowl put the nation's biggest sporting event on hold for more than a half-hour Sunday, interrupting an otherwise electric, back-and-forth game that ended with Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens as NFL champions thanks to a 34-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

Flacco threw three first-half touchdown passes to cap an 11-TD, zero-interception post-season. Jacoby Jones returned the second-half kickoff 108 yards, a Super Bowl record, to give Baltimore a 22-point lead.

Moments later, lights lining the indoor arena faded, making it difficult to see. When action resumed, the 49ers scored 17 consecutive points, closing the gap to 31-29.

But Baltimore stopped San Francisco on fourth-and-goal from the 5 with under 2 minutes left. The Ravens conceded a safety and kicked off on the game's final play. San Francisco was unable to return it for a touchdown.
