NEW ORLEANS -- The old lion is about to stalk into the football jungle one last time Sunday night before retracting his claws for good. And the young lion is eager to pounce on the throne that retiring Ravens inside linebacker Ray Lewis has owned for 17 years. San Francisco 49ers star inside linebacker Patrick Willis has a deep respect for Lewis, his longtime friend and mentor, but he can't wait to become the new Lion King. Ever since Willis forged a relationship with Lewis, built through their mutual friendship with former 49ers coach and Ravens linebackers coach Mike Singletary, the 28-year-old six-time Pro Bowl selection has referred to Lewis as Mufasa, as in the Lion King.

Each day this week, reporter and blogger Matt Vensel will break down a key matchup from Sunday's Super Bowl. Today, he looks at how the 49ers may try to keep Ravens running back Ray Rice out of the end zone. In Ray Rice, the Ravens have one of the NFL's most versatile playmakers, a running back who is capable of grinding out tough yards between the tackles and producing big plays outside of them. He is a slippery runner inside the red zone. And he is one of few legit runners who can also flex out wide and do damage as a receiver.

Here is what other news outlets are saying about the Ravens, San Francisco 49ers and Super Bowl XLVII today. --- Ron Borges of The Boston Herald says that regardless if he is elite or not, Joe Flacco is in a good place . “Earlier this season Joe Flacco caused a bit of a stir, which is news in itself, when he declared himself an 'elite quarterback.' What was he supposed to say, I think I'm average?” Borges wrote. “The debate continues to rage over whether the Baltimore Ravens' 28-year-old signal-caller is one or the other, even as he sits only days away from leading the Ravens into Super Bowl XVLII in his fifth season under center in the NFL. Is Flacco elite or just a guy who doesn't often get beat?

Offensive tackle Joe Staley remembered fondly what it was like to block Ray Lewis for the first time, while middle linebacker Patrick Willis spoke admiringly of Ray Lewis and his passion for the game.

While much of the focus after the Ravens' 16-6 win against the San Francisco 49ers centered on the number of sacks the defense had compiled Thursday night, the pass protection provided for quarterback Joe Flacco also warrants some attention. Flacco was not sacked for the first time this season. It's the first time Flacco had avoided being taken down since Sept. 26, 2010 against the Cleveland Browns. “We just battled out there,” center Matt Birk said. “And giving up no sacks speaks as much as guys getting open and Joe getting rid of the ball quickly as much as it does to the protection.” The Thanksgiving night victory was the fourth straight game that the offensive line of Birk, guards Ben Grubbs and Marshal Yanda and tackles Bryant McKinnie and Michael Oher had played together, and McKinnie said the chemistry within the front five is continuing to develop.
