Raise your hand if you had David Akers scoring all of San Francisco's points in the first half.

Yeah, didn't think so.

San Francisco's much-maligned kicker made two field goals, accounting for the 49ers' only points in what's shaping up to be a Baltimore rout. The Ravens have a 21-6 lead at halftime, and no team has ever come back to win the Super Bowl after trailing more than 10.
