Super Bowl score: 2013 belongs to the Ravens, who beat 49ers, 34-31

What a game. The Baltimore Ravens defeated the San Francisco 49ers, 34-31, in the 2013 Super Bowl. The celebration is on in New Orleans, Louisiana, especially for Joe Flacco, who was named MVP of the game, and Ray Lewis, who will now retire.

The 2013 Super Bowl lived up to all the expectations and turned out to be one of the more memorable Super Bowls. The Ravens jumped out to a huge lead -- 28-6 at one point -- before the big power outage. The 49ers seemed to regain momentum at that point, eventually clawing their way back to within striking distance.

But on a 4th-and-5 with 1:50 remaining, Kaepernick's pass was incomplete. The Ravens took the safety on their next possession before sealing the game -- 34-31.

Joe Flacco is the MVP. Ed Reed finally has a Super Bowl title. And Ray Lewis rides off into the sunset.

What a season. What a game.
