This year, Super Bowl XLVII will be hosted in New Orleans, Louisiana. The San Francisco 49ers and The Baltimore Ravens will be competing for the Lombardi trophy. This will be the first time in Super Bowl history that two siblings will compete against each other. Jim Harbaugh is the coach of the 49ers and John Harbaugh is the coach of the Ravens. This will be the last game that Ray Lewis will be playing after making the announcement that he will retire after this season. Both teams have the best Linebackers in the NFL with Patrick Willis and NaVorro Bowman playing for the 49ers and Ray Lewis for the Ravens. Joe Flacco and Colin Kaepernick both have something to prove in this game. For Kaepernick, it is to show the world that he can play well with consistency while Joe Flacco is trying to prove that he is one of the elite quarterbacks in the NFL. This Super Bowl matchup is one of the most anticipated because of the top defenses. The 49ers are favored to win by four points in this game because they are a younger team and have Colin Kaepernick. Although the 49ers are favored to win, the Baltimore Ravens still have a shot because they have Joe Flacco, Ray Lewis, and Ray Rice. The score will be 30-26 49ers.
