The 2012-13 NFL season will come to a close on Sunday, Feb. 3 when the San Francisco 49ers take on the Baltimore Ravens in Super Bowl XLVII.
Super Bowl XLVII will be held at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. Kickoff for Super Bowl XLVII is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. CT, and you can find televised coverage on CBS.
Few expected the Ravens to advance to this year's Super Bowl. Baltimore defeated the Indianapolis Colts in the Wild Card round before upsetting the Denver Broncos in a double-overtime thriller in the Divisional round. Once again underdogs in the AFC Championship game, the Ravens knocked off the New England Patriots and advanced to Super Bowl XLVII.
Unlike the Ravens, many believed that the 49ers were the NFC favorite. San Francisco finished the regular season 11-4-1 and earned a bye week. They then defeated the Green Bay Packers in the Divisional round before knocking off the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC Championship game.
