Harbaugh Bowl Will be Super for NFL in 2013

+Read full article

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

We were robbed of it last year at the end of the 2011 NFL season, but we won’t be this year. With the conference championship games upon us, both Jim and John Harbaugh‘s teams are once again one win away from the Super Bowl. Each came up just short last year, but that won’t be the case this year. In early February, Super Bowl XLVII will be renamed the Harbaugh Bowl.

Jim’s San Francisco 49ers shocked the Green Bay Packers in the divisional round of the playoffs as 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick broke an NFL single-game record with 181 rushing yards as a quarterback. He actually gained 183, but lost two on kneel downs in the game’s final moments.

John’s Baltimore Ravens also surprised the football world by knocking off Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos on the road. Joe Flacco came of age in the biggest game of his career, propelling Baltimore to the win and a rematch with Tom Brady‘s New England Patriots in the AFC Championship game.

Now a year later from those two losses, the 49ers and Ravens are once again on the doorstep of giving the NFL what it wants–the Harbaugh Bowl. These two teams put on a show during their 2011 regular season meeting, so another matchup on the game’s biggest stage won’t disappoint.

You can say you heard it here first: the 49ers will win the NFC and the Ravens will win the AFC to set up an all-Harbaugh Super Bowl. And if you think either brother will take it easy on the other come February, be sure to tune in and find out you’re dead wrong.

Super Bowl 50 Highlights: Broncos vs Panthers

If this is Peyton Manning’s final game he’ll ride off into the sunset on top. The Denver Broncos won Super Bowl 50 24-10 on Sunday behind their incredible defense especially the pass rush from linebackers Von Miller (who made two big plays) and DeMarcus Ware. Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers’ offense looked stunned unable to create much of anything under constant pressure. Lets take a look at the best highlights from the big game. Cam Newton got an early taste of what Tom Brady felt in the AFC Championship Game two weeks ago.
