(TheBlaze/AP) — Get ready for the Brother Bowl.

As much chatter as there will be about the players involved – from Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis and his impending retirement to 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s sudden emergence – the sibling angle will make this coaching matchup the most scrutinized in the nearly half-century of Super Sundays.

The game has already been nicknamed the #HarBowl on Twitter:
The 49ers open as 5-point favorites.
