Lauren Silberman has scant chance at making the NFL.
Quarterback Joe Flacco put off contract talks with the Baltimore Ravens until after the season was done.
A power outage at the Super Bowl put the nation's biggest sporting event on hold for more than a half-hour Sunday, interrupting an otherwise electric, back-and-forth game that ended with Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens as NFL champions thanks to a 34-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers.
Power at the Superdome suddenly, oddly went out, putting the nation's biggest sporting event on hold for more than a half-hour Sunday and interrupting a back-and-forth Super Bowl in which Joe Flacco's three touchdown passes and Jacoby Jones' 108-yard kickoff return gave the Baltimore Ravens a 22-point lead over the San Francisco 49ers that dwindled to 34-29 late in the fourth quarter.
One game is a rematch. The other might feel like one _ at least to one of the teams.
Just before the sixth quarter of one of the most fascinating and improbable NFL playoff games you'll ever see, Justin Tucker trotted out onto the field and did something you hardly ever see.
Deflated and nearly defeated, Ray Lewis slumped on the heated bench on the sideline, the hood of his heavy jacket pulled over his head. The final seconds of his brilliant career were slipping away, just like Demaryius Thomas had escaped his grasp minutes earlier.
No matter where his season or his career might end, Joe Flacco will always have The Fling. And Peyton Manning will always have to live with that throw he made, too.
A celebration four weeks in the making featured laughs and hugs, a surprise appearance by team owner Steve Bisciotti and the distribution of hats announcing the Baltimore Ravens' stature as AFC North champions.

It really doesn't matter to the Baltimore Ravens who starts at quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers, the mission remains the same.
Terrell Suggs was back, but the Baltimore Ravens were no match for the Houston Texans without Ray Lewis and Lardarius Webb.
The Baltimore Ravens had relied on their offense through the first four games of the season.
The men in stripes have drawn so much attention this season that some interesting developments on the football field have gone largely unnoticed, like a big spike in field goal accuracy.
Before Justin Tucker knew it, Terrell Suggs was pouring water out of two Gatorade bottles on top of his head in celebration.
He said from an agent's perspective, finding the right situation for a young kicker is most important, because there's only 32 jobs available.
Tucker added a 38-yarder with 4:19 remaining, setting up the frantic finish.
