sometimes you just want it more: playoff edition
hey friends! happy tuesday to you. i didn't do my obligatory steelers victory recap yesterday because i shared some big family news. in case you missed it, i shared the news that we'll be having our third child sometime this summer, and we are, of course, very excited about it.
but we are also very excited about the status of the steelers' season (and by "we" i mostly mean "i."). so, without further ado, let's take a look at some pics from the game.
well, there were so many exciting moments in this game, but without question, one of the most exciting was antonio brown's thrilling "that's-using-your-head" catch late in the fourth quarter. and it just exemplified what i've been saying about this team all season long: that they just want it more.
look, are the ravens a good team? you bet.
did they want to win, to keep their season going, advance to the next level, and end the steelers' season? you bet.
yes, the ravens wanted it. but the steelers wanted it more.
if you doubt that, you weren't watching. yes, the steelers were down by 14 points at halftime, but some of that was on a really flukey play. and the ravens, with a 14 point lead, couldn't cash it in, because the steelers imposed their will and their want-to.
i make another 17 or so pics for your enjoyment. want to see them? just click the orange "keep reading" button below. enjoy!
