Pittsburgh Steelers fans at Heinz Field are furious at the officiating on Sunday night.
The Steelers are playing their rival, the Baltimore Ravens, and there have been many penalties called. However, two in the second half nearly decided the game.
Steelers cornerback Artie Burns was called for two pass interference penalties in Ravens’ territory. Both penalties put the Ravens in scoring position, and they finished both drives with touchdowns.
The second penalty that turned into a touchdown came after the Steelers had narrowed the deficit to 31-29.
The crowd at Heinz Field had enough at that point, and it allowed the Sunday Night Football broadcast to go to commercial at the perfect time. Just as the crowd was in a frenzy yelling “Ref you suck!” the commercials began.
Perhaps the biggest matchup of the 2017 NFL season is in Week 15 when the Steelers will take on the New England Patriots. However, few rivalries bring the intensity like Steelers vs. Ravens.
The players, coaches and fans brought out the intensity on Sunday night.
