Coming into this weekend, the general feeling was that the San Francisco 49ers and the New England Patriots would be the Super Bowl matchup in two weeks. The Baltimore Ravens took care of the Patriots in the late game 28-13 in a game in which Joe Flacco outplayed Tom Brady to send the Pats home and extend Ray Lewis' career for one final game. Earlier, when the Atlanta Falcons jumped out ahead of San Fran 17-0, it looked like the public's expectations would be complete wrong. However, the Niners rallied and shut out Atlanta in the second half, punching their Super Bowl ticket with a 28-24 come from behind win.
