Super Bowl XLVII is finally over with the Baltimore Ravens defeating the San Francisco 49ers by a score of 34-31. With that being said another NFL season is in the books. In one of my previous posts, I predicted some things for the game, lets see how I did…
- Manti Te’o will be seen at the game with his girlfriend Incorrect!
- Tebow will be mentioned at least once. Incorrect!
- Phil Simms will say Lawrence Taylor’s name at least twice Incorrect!
- Total number of times the Harbaugh family will be shown by CBS: 8 Incorrect! Only showed them 1 time.
- A head coach with the last name of Harbaugh will win the Super Bowl Correct!
My serious predictions…
- Number of commercials during the first quarter including the end of quarter commercial: 5 Correct!
- Rushing yards by Colin Kaepernick: 80 Incorrect! Only 62 Yards
- Halftime Score: San Francisco 17; Baltimore 10 Wrong! Baltimore 21; San Francisco 6
- Missed FG’s by Akers: 1 Incorrect! Did not miss a FG (Thanks to some luck)
- Final Score: San Francisco 31; Baltimore 20 Incorrect! Baltimore 34; San Francisco 31
Some final thoughts on the Super Bowl XLVII:
- I was very shocked to find out that the second quarter interception of Kaepernick was the first pick in any San Francisco Super Bowl appearance
- Bold move by John Harbaugh with the fake Field Goal. He put his trust in the defense and it paid off in the end.
- Flacco looked very good in the first half going 13 for 20 with 3 passing TD’s, Flacco was able to throw the ball downfield (With a little bit of luck)
- Based on the halftime show from Beyoncé this year and the way everybody was dressed, I clearly see everybody has gotten over the Janet Jackson fiasco from Super Bowl XXXVIII, not that I minded 🙂 .
- What a kickoff return by Jacoby Jones to start the second half!
- Power Outage during the biggest game of the year. I’m guessing the conspiracy theorists will say a convenience store group pulled the power so people would go out and buy more snack/beer.
- Good comeback for the 49ers in the third quarter into the fourth, but it was not enough.
