The Pittsburgh Steelers needed a minor miracle to make the AFC Playoffs. They needed to take care of their own business against the Cleveland Browns, and the Buffalo Bills to pull of an upset over the New York Jets. The Steelers and Bills boast some of the most passionate fan bases in the NFL, and when you mix the two together, it can be a raucous occasion.

Take a look at some video of Steelers and Bills fans celebrating the Jets loss together, in the unlikeliest of places -- Baltimore, MD. In the middle of Ravens' territory, Bills and Steelers fans rejoiced for their individual team accomplishments.

The footage is raw, but then again, so is the emotion displayed by these fans. People who say "sports don't matter" need to watch this video and see how a meaningless Week 17 game impacted these Bills fans Sunday. Not to mention what their victory did for fans of the Steelers around the globe.

As the Steelers prepare for the playoffs, every member of Steelers Nation around the globe should toast a glass towards the Buffalo Bills for helping them punch their ticket to the postseason party.
