NFL Week 17 as told by Twitter: Playoff drama dominates the week
Eight teams were fighting for three playoff spots and thanks to some unexpected results early on Sunday, playoff drama took over Twitter.
The Ravens and Dolphins did their parts to create a wild last NFL Sunday by losing against the Bengals and Jets. Their losses opened the door for the Steelers and Chargers to fight for the last playoff spot. Following a Steelers win, San Diego needed a victory against Kansas City's backups to go to the postseason.
