The Super Bowl is always a huge event in the sporting calendar, and this year it promises to be bigger than ever as Super Bowl 47 in New Orleans plays host to the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens. What makes this year's Championship even more intriguing is that the coaches of the respective teams are brothers.
Both teams in this year's Super Bowl have tasted success before, the Ravens were victorious in 2000, their only Championship, when they defeated the New York Giants by 34-7. In contrast, the 49ers are one of the most successful teams in Super Bowl history with 5 wins, only 1 win behind the most successful team the Pittsburgh Steelers. However, San Francisco have a 100% win record in the Super Bowl's, winning 5 out of 5 in 81, 84, 88, 89, and 94, however they have not made an appearance since their fifth win.
The fact that year's Super Bowl is a family matter brings extra spice to the game, along with a slice of history as it will be the first Super Bowl in which 2 brothers will contest the title as head coaches. Jim and John Harbaugh will pit their wits against each other for bragging rights in their respective cities and around the dinner table!
Whatever happens, one of these teams will see their 100% Super Bowl winning record dashed in front of an audience of millions around the world.
