WASHINGTON (WUSA) - The Ravens beat the Patriots 28-13 in the AFC Championship rematch.
This sets the table for one of the best story-lines in NFL history, as two brothers, John and Jim Harbaugh will square off in the Super Bowl.
The 49ers beat the Falcons earlier in the day, putting the first of the two brothers in the big game.
The Ravens held up their end of the bargain, by beating the Patriots.
The stakes couldn't be higher with a bid to the Super Bowl on the line.
The Patriots took the lead with 6:21 left in the first quarter on a 13 play drive that was capped by a Stephen Gostkowski Field Goal.
The Ravens responded with a 13 play, 90 yard drive that ended with a 2 yard Ray Rice touchdown run to put the team up 7-3.
That lead was short-lived, though, as the Patriots roared back with an 11 play drive of their own that ended with a 1 yard touchdown pass to Wes Welker.
The Patriots also added another Field Goal as time expired at half to take a 13-7 lead into intermission.
Joe Flacco and the offense came back with a long, 10 play touchdown drive midway through the third quarter. Flacco threw a touchdown pass to Dennis Pitta to take the lead 14-13.
The Ravens then extended that lead to 21-13 on yet another 10 play touchdown drive that ended with a 3 yard pass from Flacco to Anquan Boldin.
Flacco then threw a third touchdown to Boldin to make the score 28-13.
