And that's a wrap. A Ravens side inspired by quarterback Joe Flacco has won Super Bowl XLVII. The final score was 34 -31.
Ravens legend Ray Lewis, who is playing his last game, said: "It's simple. When God is for you, who can be against you. There's no greater way for a champ to go out."
Joe Flacco has been named MVP. "It's unbelievable I tell you what we don't make it easy," he said.
"We did this for them back home. We can't wait to get back [to Baltimore] for the parade."
Coach John Harbaugh said of his team: "It's never pretty, it's never pretty, but it is us."
He said he told his brother, 49ers coach Jim, that he loved him and that his sibling wished him congratulations.

Colin Kaepernick threw for 302 yards, one touchdown and one interception. But this was Joe Flacco's Super Bowl. The Ravens quarterback threw for 287 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions.
That was an incredible fightback by the 49ers, but they left themselves too much to do. In the end, there was just an arm's length in it ...
And the Ravens have won! The 49ers attempted to run the ball back to the end zone but they were stopped in midfield. Final score: Ravens 34 - 31 49ers.
The Ravens play out their drive and concede a safety. Their punter wasted eight seconds running around in the end zone. There are now four seconds on the clock left for the 49ers to score a touchdown. Ravens 34 - 31 49ers.
The Ravens will kick it from their 20-yard line.
Huge play as Crabtree is whacked by the Ravens defence and drops the ball. Now it's fourth and goal. The game could hinge on this next play.
And it's incomplete. That looks like it should be the ball game for the Ravens. Brilliant defence on that play by the Baltimore outfit. There is one minute and 46 seconds left. The 49ers have only one timeout left. It's Ravens 34 - 29 49ers.Back to top
Kaepernick's throw is incomplete on second down. On third down there is a flag on the play. San Francisco had called a time out just before the ball was snapped. It'll be third down again in 30 seconds.
Kaepernick has just thrown it another 24 yards. That's over 300 yards for the game and eight plays over 20 yards. What a comeback from the rookie. The ball is on the Ravens seven-yard line. It's second down and goal. There are two minutes left in the match. This is an incredible game.
There's lots of talk out there about Beyonce's python, iguana and lace outfit. Apparently it was designed by little-known New Yorker, Rubin Singer.
The pass is incomplete from Flacco and the Ravens are forced to go for a field goal. And Tucker knocks it over again - this time from 38 yards. The lead is now five points. Ravens 34 - 29 49ers.
And now the 49ers have been punished for having two men offside. It's third down and two on the 20-yard line.Back to top
Key play. It was third down and inches and Flacco threw it to his main man Boldin, who caught it despite being manhandled. Brilliant.
The last (and only) time the Ravens made the Super Bowl, they thrashed the New York Giants. If you fancy watching the whole game again after this one, here it is.
The two-pointer is missed. Kaepernick's pass is incomplete. But that 15-yard dash by the quarterback has the 49ers right back in it. It's Ravens 31 -29 49ers.
Touchdown! Kaepernick goes over for the 49ers. Amazing. He's so quick. The 49ers are going for a two-point conversion.
Kapaernick launches the ball 32 yards to Randy Moss. He makes it look so easy. The 49ers are pressing again.Back to top
