Gameday: Super Bowl XLVII

Feb 3, 2013 at 12:01 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers return to the Super Bowl for the sixth time in franchise history and first time since 1994, as they travel to New Orleans to face the Baltimore Ravens in Super Bowl XLVII. The five-time Super Bowl champions (XVI, XIX, XXIII, XXIV, XXIX) look to tie the Pittsburgh Steelers for most Super Bowl victories in NFL history.

Super Bowl XLVII marks the first time in history that the two clubs have met in the postseason. 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh will square off against his older brother, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh, in the first Super Bowl in which sibling head coaches have faced one another and in each coach's first Super Bowl appearance.

The 49ers, who were the NFC's 2nd seed, earned a trip to the Super Bowl with a 28-24 victory over the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC Championship Game, after trailing 17-0 in the first half. The 17-point comeback was the 2nd largest deficit overcome to win a conference championship (2006 - Indianapolis trailed New England by 18 points).


The Baltimore Ravens, who were the AFC's 4th seed, are coming off of a 28-13 win over the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game.

The NFL announced today that the league is canceling the 2021 Pro Bowl game due to concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. It was scheduled to occur on January 31, 2021, at Allegiant Stadium — home of the Las Vegas Raiders. Las Vegas is being awarded the Pro Bowl in 2022. Pro Bowl honors and rosters will still be announced in December and continue to be based on the consensus votes from fans, players, and coaches, with each group's total votes counting as one-third of the selection process. The elimination of the Pro Bowl could allow the NFL to add a Week 18 to the schedule before the playoffs. That would help if NFL games continue to be postponed and rescheduled due to COVID-19.

Jason Verrett is finally healthy and putting in some dominating performances on the football field again. The injury-plagued cornerback has endured mostly challenging years since entering the NFL in 2014. It sounds like his hard work is finally paying off. Verrett has landed on injured reserve during all but one of his previous six NFL seasons. That one season in 2015 ended up landing the cornerback a Pro Bowl selection for his play that year. Verrett joined 95.7 The Game on Wednesday and was asked if he feels like he is finally back at that Pro Bowl level now that he is at his healthiest since that 2015 season. "Yeah, absolutely," Verrett responded on the Damon, Ratto & Kolsky show. "I just think, as the weeks go on, I think my game
