UPDATE 9:28 p.m.:
According to the CBS announcers, it's been changed to a 108-yard return. Now it just ties the all-time record for a kickoff return but does not break it. It still breaks the Super Bowl record.

Original story below.
-----
The Baltimore Ravens' Jacoby Jones opened the second half of Super Bowl XLVII with an electrifying 109-yard kickoff return for a touchdown.

That's not just a Super Bowl record; it's the longest kickoff-return touchdown ever — in any NFL game, regular or postseason.

After the extra point, Jones' TD gave the Ravens a 28-6 lead over the 49ers.

Jones had a 56-yard touchdown reception in the first half that put the Ravens up 21-3. That makes him the first player in Super Bowl history to have an offensive touchdown and a touchdown return in the same game.

Jones tied the old NFL kickoff-return record of 108 yards on October 14 against the Cowboys.
