Super Bowl XLVII – Harbaugh vs Harbaugh

By David Jacobs | January 25th, 2013

This year’s Super Bowl has additional layers of intrigue.  In this year’s game, the coach of the Baltimore Ravens is John Harbaugh, and the coach of the San Francisco 49ers is Jim Harbaugh.  This is the first Super Bowl, which features brothers as the opposing head coaches.  The two brothers have faced off once before as head coaches, with John and the Ravens winning 16-6 in a 2011 game.

The Ravens come into the game as the AFC Champions, compiling a 10-6 record in the regular season, which saw them lose four of their last five games and firing Offensive Coordinator Cam Cameron in the process.  In the playoffs, they won the Wild Card round game 24-9 at home against the Indianapolis Colts.  In the divisional round, they defeated the top-seeded Denver Broncos in Denver 38-35 in double-overtime.  In the AFC Championship game, the Ravens went into New England and defeated the Patriots 28-13 to punch their ticket to the Super Bowl.
