Super Bowl XLVII kicks off at 6:30 p.m. Sunday as the NFC champion San Francisco 49ers take on the AFC champion Baltimore Ravens at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.
The 49ers stifling defense -- led by All-Pro linebacker Patrick Willis -- will go head-to-head with future hall-of-famer Ray Lewis -- playing in his last season -- and the Ravens' defense.
But the main headline for Sunday's big game isn't on the field, it's on the sidelines. Opposing head coaches John Harbaugh (Baltimore) and Jim Harbaugh (San Francisco) will be the first brothers to coach against each other in the Super Bowl.
