The Baltimore Ravens will take on the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII on Sunday, Feb. 3.
The Baltimore Ravens will try to keep their streak of playoff upsets going when they take on the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII. The game will take place on Sunday, Feb. 3 at 6:30 p.m. ET in New Orleans.
The 49ers will be gunning for their sixth Lombardi Trophy and the Ravens their second; neither team has lost a Super Bowl in their franchise history. A Ravens win would mean the second Super Bowl championship for the team, but the third for the city of Baltimore as the Colts went 1-1 in Super Bowls before leaving for Indianapolis.
Few expected the Ravens to make the Super Bowl after ending their season on a 1-4 slide, including a Week 14 loss to the Redskins, but a three-game playoff run has given Ray Lewis a chance to retire on top.
The 49ers are a less surprising entry in the Super Bowl as they were favored in both of their playoffs games after winning the NFC West and taking the second overall seed in the NFC.
Game date and time: Sunday, Feb. 3 at 6:30 p.m.
Location: Superdome, New Orleans, La.
