Super Bowl XLVII – Crunching numbers

Of the 18 teams with multiple Super Bowl appearances, the San Francisco 49ers are the only team never to have lost in the Super Bowl, going 5-0.

Joe Flacco’s first three games of the 2012 play-offs for the Baltimore Ravens have produced eight touchdowns and no interceptions. He also has eight play-off wins compared to Colin Kaepernick.

Kaepernick had the NFL’s best rating on passing attempts of 21-plus yards through the air (minimum of 10 attempts). He was the only player with at least 10 attempts to complete more than 50 percent of his passes that far downfield.

Since Jim Caldwell took over play-calling duties in Week 15, Ravens running back Bernard Pierce has more rushing yards (401) than Ray Rice (397).

Frank Gore had 23 rushes for 119 yards against the Green Bay Packers for the 49ers in the divisional play-off round and 21 rushes for 90 yards against the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC Championship Game.

San Francisco 49ers kicker David Akers is tied for the third-worst regular-season field goal percentage for a kicker entering the Super Bowl since 1990.
