As they prepare for the Super Bowl, one thing that the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens have in common is that both teams overcame the odds in their respective championship games. Both were the visiting teams and had to perform in an environment where over 60,000 rabid fans were rooting against them. The 49ers fell way behind in the first half, while the Ravens entered the game expected to lose by more than a touchdown.
