The Baltimore Ravens won the National Football League championship Sunday night by beating the San Francisco 49ers, 34-to-31 in Super Bowl XLVII at the Superdome in New Orleans. Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco threw three touchdown passes and was named the game's most valuable player, as he lifted his team to its second NFL championship. The game was delayed for about 30 minutes in the third quarter when a power surge knocked out half the lights in the stadium. It was the first time the Niners have lost a Super Bowl. They have five Lombardi Trophies. WDET's Pat Batcheller talked about it with local news and sports commentator Jay Scott Smith. Click on the audio link above to hear the conversation.
