Super Bowl 2013: The 49ers Made the Super Bowl Interesting With 17 Unanswered Points


After Baltimore Ravens’ wide receiver/return specialist Jacoby Jones made history with his 109-yard touchdown kickoff return, the lights went out for 38 minutes, real time, the San Francisco 49ers made things interesting with a strong comeback.

When the lights came back, the 49ers came on as well as they went 10-plays for 78 yards to finish the drive off with a 31-yard touchdown hook up between quarterback Colin Keapernick and wide receiver Michael Crabtree with 7:20 remaining.

After a three-and-out, the Ravens surrendered the ball to the 49ers and took advantage of a bad punt. Wide receiver Ted Ginn, Jr. got to the outside for a solid return to set up a two-play drive which was finished with a six-yard touchdown run by running back Frank Gore to make the contest 28-20.

On the Ravens’ next possession, Ravens’ running back Ray Rice fumbled and the 49ers took over at the Baltimore’s 23-yardline.

The 49ers capped that turnover with a David Akers’ 34-yard field goal to end the third quarter, 28-23.
