Even though the Pittsburgh Steelers are considered the Baltimore Ravens' chief rival, one Ravens player took particular delight in the Cincinnati Bengals' 18-16 loss to the Steelers in the AFC wild-card round Saturday night.
Ravens nose tackle Brandon Williams took to Instagram shortly after the Bengals' loss: "Just on record, I'm 26 years old, and it's been 26 years since the Cincinnati Bengals won a playoff game. I've never seen it done before. Will it ever?"
Williams ended his post by raising his eyebrows and shrugging his shoulders.
If that shot wasn't enough, Williams posted this to Twitter:

Williams is right about the Bengals. Cincinnati has not won a playoff game since 1990. The drought has become a more popular topic of discussion recently because the Bengals have made the playoffs in each of the past five years and have won the AFC North title in two of the past three seasons.
It was just very bold -- or was it cold? -- for Williams to point this out.
