BALTIMORE (WJZ)—A Broncos beating. The Ravens win their second playoff game in double overtime and are now headed to the AFC Championship. Ravens fans are fired up!
Rochelle Ritchie has fan reaction.
What a game! Down to the wire, Ravens fans were holding their breath as they watched the guys fight to the finish.
It’s the kick heard around Baltimore.
“The win was perfect. The win was absolutely phenomenal,” a fan said.
“Ray Lewis will keep it going. We’ll win the Super Bowl. Let’s go!” said Robert Geiger, Ravens fan.
From Canton to Federal Hill, Ravens fans are sick with purple fever after watching their home team take down Peyton Manning and his Broncos in double overtime.
From the start the Ravens never lost heart, and fans never lost faith, especially after tying the game before half time.
“We needed that,” said Justin, Ravens fan. “I mean down seven points getting it back.”
But there were definitely some tense moments.
“I am getting old and can’t take it, but we came away with the win and we’ll see you Tom Brady!” said Kyle Erpenbach, Ravens fan.
After six years of not playing the Broncos on their own grass, Ravens fans say this was definitely the way to pay them in an overdue visit.
Now the wait is on to see who they’ll take on next between the Patriots and Texans. Either way they are ready for an AFC Championship!
“We will get there, and Ray will get another ring,” said C.B., Ravens fan.
The Ravens have faced both the Patriots and the Texans this year. They beat the Patriots back in September in a thrilling game here in Baltimore. And they were soundly defeated by the Texans in Houston in October. But as we saw Saturday night, it is a whole new ballgame in the playoffs.
