A power outage in the Superdome produced yet another challenge for the 2012 Ravens to overcome on the way to the team's second Lombardi trophy.
In one of the more bizarre circumstances in Super Bowl history, an equipment failure led to a blackout in half of the stadium that suspended play for 34 minutes, killing the momentum Baltimore had built during a 28-6 rout early in the second half.
"Beyonce must have been good," Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith said. "She took all the power with her when she left the stage."
Once the light was restored, Jim Harbaugh and the San Francisco 49ers stunned the Ravens and completely turned the tables on a game that looked to be over at halftime.
The 49ers rattled off 17 consecutive points in just four minutes, and a touchdown by quarterback Colin Kaepernick in the fourth quarter trimmed the lead to just two points. However, a Baltimore team known for its relentless defense clamped down with the game on the line.
The Ravens held strong on a goal line stand, with cornerback Jimmy Smith's smothering defense on fourth down providing the final push towards the franchise's second championship ring.
The Super Bowl XLVII ring is one of the flashiest in league history, featuring 243 round cut diamonds, crafted in 10-karat white gold and weighing 380 grams. The ring also features several distinguishing elements unique to the Ravens, including two Lombardi trophies, the Maryland flag and the team's 'Play Like A Raven' slogan.
"Every element of the ring was designed specifically to highlight the best qualities of each of the materials featured," said Chris Poitras, Jostens Director of Sports Sales and Marketing. "It's a singularly beautiful piece of fine jewelry that reflects the ultimate unity of the team."
