Ravens & Flacco Conquer Sluggish Starting 49ers

Super Bowl 108 million viewers and 164 million viewersSan Francisco was a three-point favorite over Baltimore, but the Ravens scored another postseason upset victory, holding off the 49ers 34-31. This Super Bowl may be remembered as a game that was lost by San Francisco, rather than won by the now champions from Baltimore.

The Ravens roared out to a 28-6 lead, over the jittery 49ers, before the massive power outage. Then, the 49ers rallied, outscoring the Ravens 23-6 to get close, before being thwarted by a Baltimore goal line stand in the final two minutes.

Ravens QB Joe Flacco led his squad to upset wins over Denver, New England, and San Francisco, while passing for 11 touchdown passes and no interceptions in the playoffs, a new NFL record.

Super Bowl XLVII was viewed by 108.41 million people, roughly three million shy of last year's record-breaking rating, during the Giants defeat of the Patriots in Indianapolis. This year's Big Game ranks as the third most viewed program in television history, though it did set a record for the most viewers during all or part of a game (164.1 million, during a six-minute stretch).

We liked the favored 49ers and their comeback fell just short.
