Are you ready for Super Bowl 47? It's coming up this Sunday, Feb. 3 in New Orleans where the Baltimore Ravens will face the San Francisco 49ers.
An added twist for the 2013 Super Bowl: Brother vs. brother head coaches. Jim Harbaugh coaches the 49ers, and his brother John coaches the Ravens. (What are the odds that two brothers will become head coaches in the NFL and face each other in the Super Bowl? Find out here.)
When these two teams square off Sunday, it will be the fifth time they've met since the 1996 season. Baltimore has won three games — in 2003, 2007 and 2011. San Francisco won in 1996.
