Super Bowl XLVII

This years Super Bowl will be renamed the Harbaugh Bowl, because the two head coaches are Jim Harbaugh (San Francisco 49ers) and John Harbaugh (Baltimore Ravens). This will mark the first time siblings have faced in any major United States professional sports championship. The road to the Super Bowl on February 3rd in New Orleans was tough. The Ravens beat the Denver Broncos in double overtime in the divisional round, then they beat the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship game. Beating the Patriots was significant because they lost to them last year in the same game. The 49ers beat the Green Bay Packers behind the play of their quarterback who rushed for an NFL record by a quarterback and then in the NFC championship game they rallied from a 17 to 0 deficit and won. The match-up in the Super Bowl will be interesting because the teams are evenly matched. Which Harbaugh brother do you want to win?
