It's safe to assume that Super Bowl XLVII didn't go exactly as planned -- for almost everyone involved. San Francisco didn't show up until the second half -- after the Superdome lost power -- precisely when Baltimore began a near-epic meltdown. But the Ravens held on to win one of the most electrifying world championships in recent memory 34-31.
To no one's surprise, linebackers Aldon Smith and Ahmad Brooks started the Super Bowl for the 49ers after being limited in practice all week. They were listed as probable with shoulder injuries on San Francisco's final injury report.
