Despite a rough first quarter in Sunday's NFC championship game, the San Francisco 49ers are headed for the Super Bowl for the first time in 18 years. They'll face off against the Baltimore Ravens in New Orleans early next month in a Super Bowl game that will be significant for another reason. It will be the first time two brothers -- Jim and John Harbaugh -- will lead opposing teams in football's biggest game. Commentators are calling it the "Har-bowl." We preview Superbowl XLVII.
