Asa Jackson going to Super Bowl after Ravens upset Patriots

Former Cal Poly football player Asa Jackson was not active for the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. Jackson was inactive because of a thigh injury for the Ravens 28-13 win at New England in the AFC Championship game. Jackson will have two weeks to heal if he wants to play in the Super Bowl. The former All-American cornerback at Cal Poly has been playing special teams in his rookie season with the Ravens.

Joe Flacco outdueled Tom Brady in the game, throwing three touchdown passes in the second half and leading the Baltimore Ravens to their first Super Bowl in 12 years.

The win sets up the first Super Bowl coached by brothers, Baltimore's John Harbaugh and San Francisco's Jim. The 49ers won the NFC title earlier Sunday 28-24 at Atlanta.

The 49ers have been listed as 5-point favorites.

Baltimore linebacker Ray Lewis' final season will conclude at Super Bowl 47 in New Orleans; he was the MVP of the 2001 game, the Ravens' only Super Bowl win.

Flacco had two touchdown passes to Anquan Boldin and one to Dennis Pitta as the Ravens outscored the Patriots 21-0 in the second half. Baltimore's defense made Brady look ordinary and stymied the league's top offense. Brady was 67-0 at home when leading at halftime.
