NEW ORLEANS —
Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh watched with his left arm around daughter, Alison, and his right hand over his heart.
A color guard stood with the American flag just in front of the Ravens sideline.
Ravens nose tackle Terrence Cody could be seen on the stadium’s video board tilting his head back, appearing to hold back tears.
Fans offered a rousing ovation at the finish, and the chorus then trotted to the 20-yard line and turned, with their hands on their hearts, to watch Alicia Keys sing the national anthem.
