Close games can turn your stomach and make your hair turn grey, for some though the pressure can be a little to much to handle.

This was pretty much how I was for the full hour of which the fourth quarter and both OT periods consisted.

No exaggeration.

Man, all the Broncos fans told me the game was in the bags in the late fourth quarter. However, I told them the game ain't over till it's over. When the Mile High Miracle happened, I was jumping around the sportsbar saying it ain't over till it's over.

Flacco has done plenty of 4th quarter comebacks before and this one was no exception. What sets Flacco apart from others is that he only needs 10 seconds to launch a bomb for a touchdown.

It was an emotional back-and-forth game that both team played their hearts out. I'm glad that I was able to witness what could be one of the greatest games to ever see in Ravens' history.

haha it most certainly is. I was at Buffallo wild wings watching the game, and after the turn over on downs with 3mins left to play I up and left the bar and headed home and turned on the radio and heard about the overtime and nearly crashed my car speeding home to watch OT haha

And I thought it really got your heart pumping when it showed the sidelines and all the Ravens players holding there heads down or under there coats in those many "I cant watch this!" scenarios. And so many OMG plays like the play where Flacco over threw torrey, but then Torrey came back and caught that beautiful TD in the second quarter. And the Jacoby Jones TD and the 3rd and 13 from the Ravens 3 yard line Dennis Pitta catch. great game but a lot of crazy plays

After the Cleveland game, I said that I finally understood how it feels to be a Giants fan.

Ah well, without the lows the highs aren't as great. If we go to the Super Bowl it'll be all the sweeter because of what happened last year.

I checked your math and it's correct. I said in the game thread that in the 2nd half we would start to preasure him and that's what happened. As it gets colder even if you don't get the sack but can start to hit him he'll remember that. Now if you continue to pressure him in the cold with a smart defense he'll make mistakes. It took a while but it happened. I knew as long as we could get a few yards before punting in OT we would have a shot. We got lucky with them giving us the Boldin catch and then the pretty throw and catch from Flacco to Pitta on that 3rd and long cause though they didn't score it set up decent field position when they punted.

Stressful? You bet! And a lot of fun to watch too! Not generally one given to fate and destiny but when Joe threw that 70 yard pass I just sat back and relaxed; at that point I knew we'd won this one. This game stays on the DVR for eternity!

I gave up on the game 3 or 4 times. My girl kept telling me that "it ain't over till it's over." It was such a roller coaster of emotion that it took me a couple of hours to get my mind around what i had just watched. This is why it's so great to be a Ravens fan.

It's extremely stressful, especially knowing at any moment the Zebra is waiting to call a PF for playing football. Even when the Hailmary occurred I went crazy screaming ( I was at work at the Casino ) but I quickly calm down and said wait refs prolly throw a flag. Then I went back to check on work area, before I got back to a tv I received 4 txts saying no flags lol.

This game had me sweating

As a Canadian that came down to watch the Monday Night Football home opener back in September, I can say that I was hooked on the Ravens.
The win yesterday will no doubt play on highlight reels for years to come.

Go Ravens Go!

That was no miracle. Miracles are rare. Soon as the Ravens got the ball back with a minute+ on the clock I knew it was 7 points and a tie game. Joe does it all the time. When the chips are down and we need that score he can drive down the field like he has Miss Daisy in the back seat. Miracle my keister. It was typical nail-biting, heart-wrenching Ravens football.


This team is hard on the heart.
