New First Family in Football, Brothers To Battle At Bowl

Posted: Updated:
New Orleans -

This morning, the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens are getting ready to head to the Super Bowl. Two coaching brothers will battle for historic bragging rights in New Orleans. Sunday's NFL matchups saw two teams, and two brothers return for the second consecutive season to the conference championships. This time, they finally broke through which sets up an unprecedented sports sibling rivalry on the field at Super Bowl 47. First, Jim Harbaugh's 49ers beat the Atlanta Falcons 28-24. At one point they trailed seventeen to nothing but mounted a record championship game comeback with the help of 2nd year quarterback Colin Kaepernick, a mid-season replacement. Brother John steered a seasoned Baltimore Ravens team through its second consecutive trip to New England handing the Patriots their first loss ever in a championship game at home 28-13. So two weeks from now, the stage is set not only for the sport's next champion, but for bragging rights in football's newest first family.
