Justin Tucker kicked a 38-yard field goal for Baltimore to give the Ravens a 34-29 lead over the San Francisco 49ers with four minutes, 23 seconds to play in the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl, which was delayed for about 34 minutes by a partial power outage.

Joe Flacco capped the Ravens’ opening drive with a 13-yard touchdown pass to Anquan Boldin at the Superdome in New Orleans before the 49ers pulled within 7-3 on a 36-yard field goal in the first quarter by David Akers.

Ravens quarterback Flacco found Dennis Pitta with a 1-yard pass for a touchdown midway through the second quarter before throwing a 56-yard scoring pass to Jacoby Jones to extend Baltimore’s lead to 21-3. Akers then kicked a 27-yard field goal as time expired in the first half.

The third quarter began with Jones returning the kickoff 108 yards for a touchdown to give the Ravens a 28-6 advantage. Shortly afterwards, a partial power outage knocked out some lights in the stadium, causing a delay in play of about 34 minutes.

The 49ers scored 17 unanswered points in four minutes, 10 seconds after play resumed to close to 28-23.

Quarterback Colin Kaepernick found Michael Crabtree with a 31-yard touchdown pass, Frank Gore scored on a 6-yard dash into the end zone and Akers kicked a 34-yard field goal.

Tucker kicked a 19-yard field goal for the Ravens before Kaepernick ran for a 15-yard touchdown and the 49ers failed with a two-point conversion attempt that would have tied the game at 31-31 with 10 minutes to play.

The 49ers are seeking to join the Pittsburgh Steelers as the only team with six Super Bowl wins. San Francisco last won the National Football League championship after the 1994 season.

The Ravens won in their only prior appearance in the Super Bowl following the 2000 NFL season. All-Pro linebacker Ray Lewis, the only player on Baltimore’s roster remaining from the last championship team, has said he’s retiring after the game.
