(WTVR) — One Harbaugh will win Super Bowl XLVII. Another will lose it.

Those wins mean the Harbaughs will be the first siblings to face-off on the sidelines of the NFL’s title contest and, in fact, for any major U.S. professional sports championship.
Both teams rallied from half-time deficits on the road to earn berths in the Super Bowl, which will be played February 3 in New Orleans.

Baltimore did it by reeling off 21 straight points, to overcome Tom Brady and the New England Patriots by a XX-XX score. It was sweet revenge for the Ravens, who lost last year’s AFC Championship — to the same Patriots foe, on the same Gillette Stadium field in Foxborogh, Massachusetts — in a nail-biter last year.
