That Was One of the Best Football Games I’ve Ever Seen

My ass is still clenched so tight right now. I just can’t unclench it. I can’t untense my body. I don’t even know if I’m gonna be able to fall asleep tonight. That was quite simply one of the most thrilling playoff games of all time. As a fan you couldn’t take 1 play off. You couldn’t relax for a second. The Ravens jumped down our throats before you could even blink and it was an absolute gutter war from the word go. Nothing went as planned. The Patriots defense which was supposed to lead us looked like garbage. Revis was horriible. We couldn’t stop the run. We couldn’t run the ball at all. We didn’t even try to run the ball. There were two fumbles by Edelman and Amendola that I still don’t know how we recovered. Julian Edelman threw a TD pass. The Ravens converted like 20 4th downs. We fell behind by 14 pts twice. Belichick exploited a loophole in the NFL rules and refused to say who our eligible receivers were on any given play. Goodell refused to wear a winter hat in the stands. It was complete and utter chaos. Back and forth, back and forth.

Everytime we crawled back into the game and looked to be on the verge of seizing momentum the Ravens would push us back down the stairs. The Brady INT at the end of the first half. The 3 and out after picking Flacco off at the 40. The holding call on Revis when Flacco fumbled inside his own 5 yard line. We just couln’t get over the hump until we finally did on our last drive of the game. Even then it still looked like it may not be enough as the Ravens converted yet another 4th down and were driving into our territory for the game winning score. It wasn’t even over after Cool Joe’s 2nd INT. The game was in doubt right up until that final hail mary hit the turf and I could breathe for the first time in 3 hours. One of the best games you’ll ever see between 2 well coached championship caliber teams who hate each other. A game that will live on in NFL lore forever.
