The Steelers clinched the AFC North division title after a down-to-the-last-minute-nail-biter win against the Baltimore Ravens on NBC Sunday Night Football, and Ben is now the first player in NFL history to record three games of 500+ passing yards…but there was something, or rather someone more important on Ben’s mind after the game:

“The line played unbelievable, the receivers caught the ball, and Ryan Shazier is with us tonight.We didn’t play without him. He was out here with us.”


And then to Ryan:

“We love you Ryan, we know you’re watching. Buddy, we love you so much!”
