The San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens square off in Super Bowl XLVII in the Superdome.

The Super Bowl XLVII battle between head coaching brothers Jim and John Harbaugh kicks off Sunday as the San Francisco 49ers face the Baltimore Ravens in New Orleans, La. Jim Nantz and Phil Simms will have the call on CBS, and kickoff is set for 6:30 p.m. ET.

The matchup between the Ravens and 49ers is, on paper, a good one. Joe Flacco has made all the necessary plays this offseason. He, receiver Anquan Boldin and running back Ray Rice lead the NFL in their respective categories of passing efficiency, receiving yards and rushing yards for this postseason.

Meanwhile, San Francisco is quarterbacked by the inexperienced but so far lethal Colin Kaepernick and boasts an imposing defense with stars in end Aldon Smith, linebacker Patrick Willis and linebacker NaVorro Bowman. That defensive group comes in as the least-hyped unit, as Baltimore's Ray Lewis has a chance to end his career on the highest of highs.

Time: 6:30 p.m. ET
