NFL playoffs -- Harbaugh's risk will pay off for 49ers
Summary of 2 articles · Updated Jan 15, 2013
They're going to win because their coach, Jim Harbaugh, won the biggest gamble of this NFL season. No, not Jim Harbaugh with his Colin Kaepernick gambit on the West Coast, though that has worked out beautifully, too, for the 49ers. The San Francisco 49ers are going to win the Super Bowl because they have a dynamic offense, a great defense and the experience that comes from suffering a heartbreaking defeat in last year's NFC Championship Game. But that's not all. Caldwell's work has been masterful so far, and if Baltimore is able to upset host New England Sunday night and earn its first Super Bowl berth in 12 years, it'll likely be because the Ravens offense was able to match the powerful Patriots offense point for point.
