02:59 PM ET 01.31 | In these playoffs, the Baltimore Ravens have been slow starters and strong finishers. Baltimore has outscored its opponents, 52-17, after halftime in these playoffs. That 35-point margin in the second half and overtime is the second-largest in the postseason over the last 10 years. Only the 2006 Colts, who outscored teams by 38 points in the second half during that postseason, have been more impressive than the Ravens in finishing off teams, according to ESPN Stats & Information. "We???ve been put in a situation where we???ve had to step it up to win the game," Ravens guard Marshal Yanda said. "At halftime, we understood, if something didn't change, we would probably lose the game. We just rose to the occasion and guys stepped up and made plays. That???s what the difference in the games have been."

49ers have been slow the first half too.

Both teams will be a little tight in the first half. I'd think the Ravens will actually perform better early. It's who's offense is hot in the fourth quarter that's going to matter.

Both teams will be behind at halftime. No wait, that can't be. It will be another super bowl record.
