After one final practice at their own training facility, the Super Bowl-bound Baltimore Ravens packed their bags for a trip to New Orleans.

The Ravens had a light practice Saturday, their last of the season before heading to the Big Easy. The team is off Sunday and will head south Monday in anticipation of their matchup on Feb. 3 with the San Francisco 49ers.

After Saturday's session, coach John Harbaugh said, "We've had a great week. We had an excellent practice. The guys are very sharp and they're excited. We'll have to go down there and do just as well and do better."

Harbaugh called the 49ers "a very well-coached football team." He said it with a grin, because San Francisco is coached by his little brother, Jim.
