The Terrible Podcast - Episode 26 (1/17)

Playoff Week 1 for the Terrible Podcast and we proudly sit undefeated. A fantastic effort by the Steelers as they came back from a 21-7 halftime deficit and defeated the Baltimore Ravens 31-24 at Heinz Field.

In Part 1 of Episode 26 we break down the first half. We discuss the stirring atmosphere at the stadium and we take a close look at how the Steelers got themselves into such a big hole. Despite trailing by 14, we both felt confident in the team's ability to come back.

In Part 2 we focus on one of the most dominating quarters in Steelers playoff history as the Black & Gold completely turned the tables in the third quarter. The Steelers stuffed the Ravens on all four possessions, causing three turnovers and turning a 14 point hole into a three point lead early in the fourth. In particular we review the great play of Ryan Clark, Ike Taylore and Ben Roethlisberger.

In Part 3 we step back and look at the numbers. The stats clearly show the total dominance of the Steelers. From net yards to time of possession to the turnover battle, the Steelers were better in almost every phase of the game. We take a look at the Jets surprising victory over the top-seeded Patriots and glance at the two NFC battles that went exactly how we predicted. We conclude with a nod to the great work of the both the defensive line and linebackers who were excellent throughout the game.

Thanks for listening!
