Flacco threw red-zone touchdown passes in the first half -- the first to Anquan Boldin and another to Dennis Pitta.

He also hit Jones for a 56-yard touchdown pass, where the wide-open receiver fell down catching the ball at the 8-yard line, got up and evaded one defender before sprinting into the end zone.

Baltimoreans rejoice

Late Sunday night, euphoric Baltimore residents spilled into the streets, dancing and waving flags. Many darted in between cars, which in turn honked their horns and joined in the celebrations.

"I think it's a very exciting time for us," City Police Commissioner Anthony Batts told CNN. He said his officers were keeping an eye but were letting residents enjoy themselves.

"We have a number of residents that are out doing celebratory jumping in the street, which is normal and expected."

Back in New Orleans, the Harbaugh brothers met at midfield after the game.

"I told him I was proud of him" Jim Harbaugh said. "I think he said the same."
