Anquan Boldin had six receptions for 104 yards and a score for Baltimore, which sent future Hall of Fame linebacker Ray Lewis into retirement on a triumphant note by handing the 49ers their first Super Bowl loss in six appearances.
The 49ers did not go quietly, storming back from a 28-6 third-quarter deficit and moving into position for the go-ahead touchdown before Colin Kaepernick overthrew Michael Crabtree in the end zone with 1:46 to play on fourth-and-goal at the 5-yard line. The Ravens took a late safety to account for the final margin.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh got the best of his younger brother Jim in what appeared to be a blowout after Jones tied the longest scoring play in Super Bowl history by returning the second-half kickoff 108 yards for a 28-6 lead.
