The AFC Championship Game came down to the wire between the New England Patriots and the Baltimore Ravens. The two teams were locked in a tight battle for all four quarters with a berth to Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis on the line.
Ultimately, it came down to the right foot of kicker Billy Cundiff. Call it lucky, call it miraculous, but no matter what you call it, the result was the same. Cundiff shanked a 32-yard chip shot, giving the Patriots a 23-20 victory and a trip to their 5th Super Bowl in 11 years.
Gillette Stadium erupted as Cundiff’s brutal mistake doomed the Ravens. Similarly, Twitter experienced an overflow of comments and reactions from various fans, analysts, and athletes.
