Joe  Flacco unequivocally proved he belongs with the NFL's elite quarterbacks, while  John  Harbaugh showed that  big brother indeed  knows best. And for Ray Lewis,  it was  the ultimate ending to an absoutely illustrious career. Flacco
delivered  a  lights-out performance --  both literally and figuratively -- at the  Mercedes-Benz  Superdome, and  the Baltimore Ravens  warded off a furious comeback  attempt by the San Francisco 49ers to hold on for a 34-31 victory in a  thrill-packed Super  Bowl XLVII  that  every bit  lived up  to its  advance billing.  Flacco threw  three touchdown  passes to  stake his  team to  a 21-6 halftime  lead  it very nearly  gave away, and finished  with 287 yards and no turnovers  on  a crisp  22-of-33 passing  to earn  Most Valuable Player honors and  lead the Ravens to their second Lombardi Trophy in franchise history. The game  featured  the first brother  vs. brother  coaching matchup in Super Bowl history,  with  Harbaugh besting  younger sibling and  49ers sideline boss Jim Harbaugh,  the  final game  of  Lewis'  stellar  17-year  pro career,  and  an unexpected 34-minute delay early in the third quarter caused by a power outage in the Superdome.

=== GOLF ===

Phil  Mickelson fired  a 4-under 67 on Sunday to complete a dominant, wire-to- wire  victory  at the Phoenix Open  in Arizona.  Mickelson, who also  won this event in 1996 and 2005,  came within a horse-shoed putt of shooting 59  in the first  round and never  relented. The left-hander  carded a 65 on Friday, then matched  the tournament's  54-hole  scoring  mark with  a 64  on Saturday  and tallied  five birdies during the final round to finish at 28-under 256,  which tied  for the second-lowest score in a 72-hole PGA Tour event. It was the 41st career  PGA  Tour win for  Mickelson and his  first since capturing the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am title last February.

=== TENNIS ===

The  opening round  of the  2013 Davis Cup  concluded Sunday,  with the United States advancing to the quarterfinals after a hard-fought 3-2 win over Brazil. Sam  Querrey put  the Americans on top  by defeating Thiago Alves in the fifth and  deciding rubber,  dropping the  first  set against  the Brazilian  before roaring back  for the 4-6, 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 (7-3) win.  The Americans will host a quarterfinal in April against Serbia, which advanced by beating Belgium.

===

Argentina  and  France both swept  their respective  matchups and will meet in April,   while  the   defending  Cup  champion  Czech  Republic  finished  off Switzerland  on Sunday  and will face Kazakhstan, which advanced past Austria. Canada knocked off top-seeded Spain and will host Italy, which topped Croatia.
