Weird things happen in Week 1, which is essentially an extension of the preseason. And like the preseason, what happens in Week 1 is rarely indicative of what will happen as the regular season progresses.
Just like Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome knows what he's looking for in putting together a team and doesn't stray from that, you should do the same if you want to be competitive each year as a fantasy owner.
Colin Kaepernick has the job from the start this season, and the feeling is the flashy quarterback is more than capable of leading the San Francisco 49ers to a Super Bowl championship.
The San Francisco 49ers suddenly have a huge void in their receiving corps as they chase another Super Bowl berth: Michael Crabtree is sidelined after surgery on his right Achilles tendon.
Manti Te'o walked into a crowded room of reporters Saturday, took a breath and settled in for 15 minutes of NFL scouting combine history.
Before he could bask in a shower of confetti, before he could put his fingerprints on the Lombardi Trophy and before he could head into retirement as a champion, Ray Lewis had one final task: stop the San Francisco 49ers on three plays 5 yards from the end zone.
Under pressure and off balance, Colin Kaepernick released a fourth-down throw into the end zone with the outcome of the Super Bowl hanging in the balance.
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.
The journey to this Super Bowl wound through bounties and replacement refs, eventually bringing the big game back to the Big Easy _ with a replacement quarterback, a sibling rivalry and a grand exit for one of the NFL's greatest players, clouded by the obscure healing powers of deer-antler spray.
After a remarkable postseason run — with those speedy legs — by the tattooed play-caller, the Baltimore Ravens exposed plenty of flaws in handing Kaepernick and Co. a 34-31 loss Sunday despite San Francisco's second-half rally.
Standing tall in the middle of a defense that survived a frenzied comeback by Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers, Lewis put a lovely bow on his 17th NFL season by earning his second Super Bowl ring — 12 years after the first.
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.
Colin Kaepernick got tripped up and tossed down, then still nearly led the greatest Super Bowl comeback in just his 10th career NFL start.
Colin Kaepernick is a mystery man under center, a strong-armed passer one moment and a 25-year-old kid who can run right out of the pocket for a huge gain the next.
The dynamic, play-making wide receiver will be a primary focus for the Baltimore Ravens' secondary come Sunday at the Superdome. Crabtree is as dangerous after the catch as he is dodging defensive backs to make acrobatic catches or finding ways to keep both feet inbounds while tiptoeing the sideline.
Receiver Percy Harvin was sidelined on the eve of Seattle's training camp by a torn hip labrum that would require surgery, something he announced, fittingly, on Twitter.
Crabtree said that performance helped fuel him last year.
