Super Bowl XLVII: Baltimore Ravens Withstand Biggest Non-Play in History

Ravens win super bowl xlvii

Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

It’s impossible to say right now, but it looks like the most game-changing play of Super Bowl XLVII wasn’t a play at all. At the time of the sudden power outage in the Superdome, the score was Baltimore Ravens 28, San Francisco 49ers 6. The instant the lights came back on, the momentum shift was unbelievable. The 49ers were scoring seemingly every few minutes and the Ravens were completely flat. It seemed like the power outage, the biggest non-play maybe in history, would be something the Ravens could not overcome.

Early on the Ravens defense carried the game in big play after big play. Joe Flacco played unbelievably and led the charge offensively to the 22-point lead. Jim Harbaugh apparently knew exactly what to say to motivate his team during the 34 minute power outage. When the power was on and the game restarted, the 49ers took it to the Ravens in every facet of the game.

In the end, the Most Valuable Player Joe Flacco was able to come up with the right drive at the right time, but the winning play was actually a series of four huge plays by the Ravens defense. After the 49ers and Colin Kaepernick drove all the way down their throats, it was first and goal at the end of the fourth quarter. The four plays the Ravens defense came up with then won the Super Bowl. So, actually the biggest plays of Super Bowl XLVII wasn’t the kickoff return or a long run or pass. It wasn’t even the power outage. The biggest play in the end that decided the game was the four-play goal line stand by the Baltimore Ravens. They were biggest when it counted the most.

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.
