Ravens' Cary Williams Shoves Ref in Super Bowl Melee

by at . Comments

A scuffle broke out between the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers during Super Bowl XLVII after the Ravens intercepted a pass in the second quarter.

After Ed Reed picked off a Colin Kaepernick pass, players were pushing and shoving ... mostly each other. Except the Ravens, Cary Williams, who took on a ref.

Unnecessary roughness penalties were awarded to San Francisco's Joe Staley and Baltimore's Corey Graham. Williams, however, escaped being penalized.

Purposeful contact with an official typically results in an ejection, and many felt that Williams should have been ejected from the game after the move.

It's all irrelevant now, though. Baltimore won its second Super Bowl title Sunday, holding off a furious San Francisco comeback to eke out a 34-31 victory.
