Coaching brothers do battle in Super Bowl

3 February 2013 17:30

Former NFL quarterback Daunte Culpepper expects the Super Bowl to be a tight, low-scoring affair on Sunday.

The Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers do battle at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, where blue skies have greeted nervous fans.

All the attention pre-match has been on the coaches, as brothers John and Jim Harbaugh prepare to lead the Ravens and 49ers respectively.

It will be the first Super Bowl ever to feature opposing head-coaching brothers, and Culpepper – a two-time All-Pro – said the Ravens would edge the 49ers.

"It's going to be a close one. I don't think it's going to be a lopsided score," Culpepper said.

"I'm going to go with the veteran leadership of Baltimore. They've got guys who've been there before. They won't be bright eyed.

"I'm going to go slight edge Baltimore, low-scoring game. I don't think there'll be a lot of scoring."

Baltimore linebacker Ray Lewis will retire after the game, hoping to add a second Super Bowl ring before his 17-year NFL career comes to an end.

Quarterbacks Joe Flacco, of the Ravens, and San Francisco's Colin Kaepernick are likely to play big parts as the NFL season draws to a close.
