It wasn’t easy, it wasn’t pretty, but it was Ravens football… as head coach John Harbaugh would say. The Ravens walked into this playoff run with plenty of fire and reasons to win.

  • Ray Lewis’ last ride
  • Joe Flacco’s drive to prove his worth

A year prior, Ray Lewis promised that another Lombardi would be in Baltimore before he retired. A year later, after several injuries, an up and down season of production, and a return fueled by the desire to go out on top, he and the Baltimore Ravens delivered just that.

Joe Flacco turned down a contract extension in the 2012 offseason, betting on himself to deliver a Lombardi to Baltimore and earn a max contract as an elite quarterback. A stellar playoff performance that included 11 touchdowns and 0 interceptions, a feat that tied Joe Montana in the history books, earned him that distinction and contract.

This Super Bowl also brought the world its first ever brother vs. brother head coaching matchup as John Harbaugh and the Baltimore Ravens emerged victorious against John’s’ younger brother Jim Harbaugh and his San Francisco 49ers.

A game that saw a 35 minute electricity outage, a shift in momentum, and a goal line stand to seal the score, this was a Super Bowl victory for the Baltimore Ravens that both wrote history and closed the chapter on a storied career at the same time.
