Entering Sunday, the Pittsburgh Steelers needed to beat the Cleveland Browns and get help from their friends in upstate New York, the Buffalo Bills, in order to make the playoffs. Their odds didn’t look great, but they were apparently much better than anyone thought.

The Steelers did indeed beat the Browns, and Rex Ryan and the Bills upset the New York Jets, punching Pittsburgh’s playoff ticket. After the game, the Bills sent out this tweet from their official account. 

As for who’s more excited about the way things played out, it’s a toss-up between Ryan, the former Jets coach who ruined his old team’s own chances to make the postseason, and the Steelers. Both made out pretty well in Week 17.
