The Pittsburgh Steelers ended the season with a 9-6-1 record (9 wins, 6 losses, and 1 overtime tie.)  This is considered a decent go in a normal NFL Season in the view of any person who knows about football.

The team with their stars such as JuJu Smith Schuster, Antonio Brown, and James Conner, their backup running back who had an unpredictable amazing season with 973 and 12 touchdowns.

The Steelers were doing great and heading towards the post season NFL Playoffs but this depended on one thing: The Cleveland Browns (7 wins, 8 losses, 1 overtime tie that happened to be against the Steelers) needed to beat the Baltimore Ravens (10 wins, 6 losses).

The Browns ended up losing by only 2 points, which devastated the Steelers, denying their playoff berth.

The Ravens fans were happy and mocking Steelers fans after the Browns loss, tweeting things such as “Bye Bye Steelers!”
