Though the Ravens failed to make playoffs, the fans still are invested in the postseason. Their archrival, nay, their two greatest archrivals, play one another the AFC Championship this week. It hasn’t been easy voting for a side, as many fans are searching for loopholes on how both can lose, or hoping the comic book villian ‘Bane’ makes an appearance, ending the competition early.
Baltimore Beatdown ran a poll on Twitter, asking for who the fans would root for. No jokes or extra votes. Only the Pittsbugh Steelers and New England Patriots.
Ravens fans, who are you cheering for in the AFC Championship? Respond and tell us your reason.— Kyle P Barber (@BMoreBeatdown) January 16, 2017
The vote ended with 70% of fans selecting the New England Patriots as their team of lesser evil.
The statement rings true, Ravens fans will root against the Pittsburgh Steelers, even if it means cheering for Tom Brady and Bill Belichick.
