The Steelers won yesterday, beating the Ravens 23-20.
Despite a 5-game losing streak that's still fresh in our memories, the Steelers have faint playoff hopes. We'll need a win and a handful of other teams to lose. Which means as soon as the game ended, our collective minds shifted to week 17.
It was nice to see the Steelers D hold a lead with 5 minutes left in the game for once. And even with our own glaring flaws, the team persevered and pulled out a huge win. As was the case last week, I'm tempered in my excitement because there's still so much that needs to happen next week in order for the Steelers to advance. And most of that stuff is out of our hands...we're hoping for the stars to align.
Enjoy this win, as we've chopped down the Ravens' playoff aspirations while using them as a stepping stone for our own. Win against the Dolphins, and hope the good vibes spread.
