The Niners finished the 2012 season with an 11-4-1 record, winning the NFC West and earned the No. 2 seed in the NFC. They beat the Green Bay Packers in the Divisional Round at home and then went on the road to Atlanta where they defeated the No. 1 seed Falcons in the conference championship.

The Ravens finished the season with a 10-6 record, winning the AFC North and earning the No. 4 seed in the AFC. They hosted and defeated the Indianapolis Colts in Wildcard Weekend. The Ravens then went to Denver where they defeated the No. 1 seed Broncos before beating the Patriots in the AFC Championship game in Foxborough.

Both teams are undefeated when it comes to playing in Super Bowls. The Niners are 5-0 in NFL Championship games and are looking to win their sixth, which would tie them with the most Lombardi Trophies with the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Ravens are 1-0 and are looking to win their second Super Bowl since their win over the Giants in the 2000 season.

The two teams are coached by the Harbaugh brothers. John Harbaugh, the older, is the head coach of the Ravens while Jim is the head coach of the Niners. This is also the last game of future hall of fame linebacker Ray Lewis' career as he announced his retirement before the playoffs began.

The Super Bowl is set to kick off at 6:30 p.m. on Feb. 3 and will be broadcast nationally on CBS.
