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).

49ers 'starving' for Super Bowl win, say George Kittle and Trent Williams

The San Francisco 49ers held a light practice on Wednesday. According to tight end George Kittle, you probably couldn't tell by how he and his teammates were flying around. The 49ers are eager to get to Sunday and are doing everything they can to ensure they are sufficiently prepared for their NFC Championship Game matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles. One more win sets the stage. During the 2019 season, the 49ers just missed their opportunity to earn the franchise's sixth Lombardi trophy. Here they are again, on the doorstep of another chance to redeem that heartbreaking loss. "It's what you dreamt about since you were a kid," Kittle told reporters on Thursday. "You dream about it when you're in high school and college. You dream about it when you're in the



49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo says Super Bowl return 'still up in the air'

The San Francisco 49ers have officially ruled out quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo for this weekend's NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles. That wasn't unexpected. The chances of the former starter suiting up for Sunday's playoff bout, backing up rookie Brock Purdy, were slim. "Yeah, it's just been an outside chance the whole time, and that was still an outside chance," head coach Kyle Shanahan said Thursday, before that outside chance turned into no chance. The 49ers never placed Garoppolo on injured reserve, leaving the door open for a playoff return. However, we are now down to just one more game as a possibility—Super



49ers' Fred Warner on potentially winning a Super Bowl: "It would mean everything"

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers are a win away from returning to the Super Bowl. The team got there during the 2019 season but failed to hold onto a lead over the Kansas City Chiefs. Now, they have an opportunity to make amends for that heartbreaking defeat. Fred Warner was on that last Super Bowl team. It was the linebacker's second year in the NFL. Now, three years later, Warner and the 49ers are on the cusp of another trip to the big game. So what would winning in his second trip mean to the All-Pro defender? "It would mean everything, seriously," Warner recently told Rich Eisen. "We've been there. We've been to the NFC Championship Game three out of the last four years. I've been to the Super Bowl. And when you go so early in your career, I don't think you



A Game for the Ages - Matchups, History, and More Ahead of 49ers-Cowboys Divisional Game

Do you smell that? It's playoff football. It's a time to celebrate. For a few more precious hours, every team in the tournament still has life, still has reason to hope. There are no more guaranteed games, but there's football to be played, and right now is the time to exult in it. No matter who you root for, you can imagine your team finding a way to win, a way to keep playing football, and filling your February with excitement and joy. Right now, there's nothing standing between your team and glory except the vagaries of chance and a well-fought effort this weekend, and hopefully the next. And for those of you who aren't rooting for a team that's made it this far, never fear. 7 of the 14 playoff entrants this year didn't make it into the dance last year. The
