Video: Steelers' Ryan Shazier all smiles after team's AFC North-clinching victory

Shutdown Corner

The best postgame scene from the Pittsburgh Steelers’ victory against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday night was probably that of a smiling Ryan Shazier.

Shazier’s fiancee, Michelle, shared a video on social media of her husband whooping it up with his Steeler teammates via FaceTime as the linebacker recovers from a serious spinal injury at a Pittsburgh hospital.

The Steelers clinched the AFC North with the victory and could take a huge step in securing home-field advantage throughout the conference playoffs if they defeat the New England Patriots on Dec. 17.

At the end of Sunday’s game, Ben Roethlisberger walked off the field holding Shazier’s No. 50 jersey. Linebacker James Harrison warmed up shirtless during the pregame, something Shazier did routinely. Teammates also wore custom designed cleats honoring Shazier’s recovery efforts.
