For football fans, this is the saddest time of the year.
College football is officially over, and NFL playoffs begin this week, meaning that we only a have a few short weeks before the anticipation of next season.
One of the most interesting stories this year’s NFL postseason, are the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The team was abysmal at the beginning of the season, but fought and clawed their way to a a 9-7-1 record to take the 13th seed, facing off the Kansas City Chiefs, who might be playing the best football out of anybody right now.
Of course, it’s kind of a miracle that the Steelers made it this far in Ben Roethlisberger’s final season, as the Las Vegas Raiders and Los Angeles Chargers nearly tied their game Sunday night, almost kicking the Steelers out of the playoff race all together.
And ol’ Big Ben? He had some interesting things to say about the upcoming matchup versus the Chiefs…
And he said what everybody was already thinking… they don’t have a chance.
“We’re probably 20 point underdogs and we’re going to the #1 team, I know they’re not the #1 seed but they’ve won the AFC the last two years, arguably the best team in football… we don’t have a chance.
So let’s just go and have fun.”
