The John Harbaugh vs. Jim Harbaugh rematch will have to wait for another year. The Baltimore Ravens were eliminated by the New England Patriots after Billy Cundiff pulled a game-tying field goal in the last seconds of the 4th quarter. Baltimore was eliminated, meaning Jim will not have to worry about beating his brother.
The Ravens and 49ers met earlier this season and fought a hard-contested battle. While Jim is probably not too thrilled that his brother lost today, it does take some relief off the game knowing that he doesn't have to go through him to win his first ever championship with the 49ers. Or his team, which beat them in a physical battle in Baltimore on Thanksgiving Night.
First things first in the NFC Championship though.
