After the 49ers arrived on Sunday, it was the Ravens’ turn to touch down in New Orleans on Monday. They held their first media session at their hotel, the Hilton New Orleans Riverside.
The president’s thoughts about the future of the NFL — and whether he’d let a son play football — were a main topic of conversation as Super Bowl week got under way.
I landed in NOLA on Sunday night, and it didn’t take long to realize how much time and effort the city of New Orleans and the Host Committee put into preparing for the Super Bowl.

Winning in the regular season is hard. Winning in the postseason is even tougher. Players don’t need any more pressure than the playoffs already pose.
The Baltimore Ravens defense played a big part in their 16-6 Thanksgiving night victory over the San Francisco 49ers. Even without Ray Lewis, they totaled a franchise record nine sacks.
