Odenton resident Alan Simpson and his son, Bradley, were in New Orleans as the Ravens won Super Bowl XLVII over the 49ers.
Sunday was a great day for Alan Simpson and his son, Bradley. The Odenton residents were in New Orleans for about 16 hours, but they made a visit to Bourboun Street, munched on some beignets at Café Du Monde and then watched the Baltimore Ravens edge the San Francisco 49ers to win the Super Bowl. The father and son paid more than $9,000 to Prime Sports for a chartered flight and tickets to the game; it was a special treat from Alan to Bradley, an honor roll student and junior at Arundel High. The game itself was a wild one, as the Ravens jumped out to an early lead that quieted 49ers fans in the Simpsons' section. "We were pretty sure we were going to win the game. We had 49ers fans around us and they had pretty much given up,” Alan …

Patch is looking for fans in west Anne Arundel County heading to New Orleans to support the Ravens.
Well, the Baltimore Ravens are now one win away from glory. Two straight playoff road wins means a date in New Orleans to face the San Francisco 49ers. We want to find people from west Anne Arundel County heading to the Super Bowl. We know many fans will make the trip, because Ravens fans have shown they can travel. Sunday's AFC Championship game was played in Foxborough, but you could hear the "Seven Nation Army" chant through the TV screen. Ravens players and coaches took notice. "We might have had one-eighth of the crowd, which is really a high number for a visiting AFC Championship game. That speaks so much about our fans," Harbaugh said when talking to the media Monday in Owings Mills. "For all of those people to make that trip up …

The Ravens are 10-4 and still lead the AFC North. Will they win it all, or will Super Bowl dreams be dashed early again?
The Baltimore Ravens are a bit of an enigma this year. They've looked good in beating the rival Pittsburgh Steelers twice, and currently stand atop the AFC North. A chance at the AFC's overall top seed in the playoffs is still in play. But then Joe Flacco and Co. have also put up lackluster performances and posted losses against less accomplished teams, including the Tennessee Titans and Seattle Seahawks. Sunday's 34-14 loss to the San Diego Chargers may have been the low point of the year. The Ravens host the Cleveland Browns on Saturday, then finish up the regular season against the Cincinnati Bengals on Jan. 1. Are the Ravens still among the favorites to win the Super Bowl? How will the last few weeks of this season play out? Vote in …
