The 2013 NFL playoffs have come and gone, and now, there is just one game left on the NFL TV schedule. The Superbowl TV schedule is set, as the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens are going to be duking it out against each other. Check out a look at the game and what network you can watch the Super Bowl.
The Super Bowl is officially here, and we are going to be seeing something that we have never seen before and likely will never see again. Jim Harbaugh and John Harbaugh, the coaches for the 49ers and Ravens respectively, are going to be coaching against each other, marking the first time that two family members have faced off in the big one.
Super Bowl 47 TV Schedule
February 3rd, 2013, 6:30 ET – San Francisco 49ers vs. Baltimore Ravens (CBS)
The 49ers made it to the Super Bowl by getting through the NFC in fine form. The team beat the snot out of the Green Bay Packers in the Divisional Round of the playoffs, and San Francisco followed that up by beating the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC Championship Game on the road. The comeback in that game from down 17-0 at the Georgia Dome marked the biggest comeback in the history of the league. Baltimore meanwhile, took the hard road to reach the Big Easy. The Ravens didn’t have any problems in the first round against the Indianapolis Colts, who they really shouldn’t have struggled with. But from there, the magic really kicked into play. The team fended off the Denver Broncos on the road in what amounted to be the biggest upset of the playoffs at Mile High, courtesy of a 70-yard touchdown pass to WR Jacoby Jones that could go down in Baltimore football history as one of the biggest plays in franchise history. Had the magical run ended there, that would have been good enough for some history. Matters continued though, when Baltimore went into Foxboro and beat the New England Patriots in fine fashion thanks to a big time second half in which QB Joe Flacco threw for three touchdowns without tossing a pick.
The matchup in this one is going to be tough, as these teams are both darn near mirror images of each other. Both teams run the ball and play great defense, and that’s the basis of how they got to the playoffs. However, when push came to shove, it was QB Colin Kaepernick and Flacco that made the big time plays to get their team to the Super Bowl.
No matter how the Harbaugh Bowl goes, catching Super Bowl 47 is something that you absolutely have to do if you’re a fan of any form of football.
