After having to endure watching the Raiders need overtime and a game-winning field goal in the final seconds to secure the win over the Chargers, which officially sent Pittsburgh to the playoffs, Steelers players exploded with their instant reactions all over Twitter.
The extreme joy mixed with relief was felt with T.J. Watt’s Ric Flair GIF.
