Best Twitter Reactions to Cincinnati Bengals' Week 17 Win

The Cincinnati Bengals entered Week 17 needing a win to finish off a perfect home record in 2013 and stay alive for the No. 2 seed in the AFC, while the Baltimore Ravens needed a win just to have a shot at making it to the NFL playoffs.

Playing at home in front of an electric Paul Brown Stadium crowd, the Bengals downed the Ravens, 34-17, and finished an undefeated record at home this year.  

As expected, Twitter was buzzing about the Bengals' win. Cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick had a two-interception performance, one of which went for a touchdown, and that was a special football he wanted to make sure he gave to his son:

Bengals linebacker Emmanuel Lamur was lost for the year after suffering a torn shoulder labrum in the preseason, but he's remained one of the biggest Twitter cheerleaders for the Bengals after every game:

Offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth felt that Sunday's win over the Ravens was about earning respect from the defending Super Bowl champions:

The Bengals had a chance to be the AFC No. 2 seed in the playoffs if the Patriots had lost to the Buffalo Bills, and it came as no surprise linebacker J.K. Schaffer was cheering for Buffalo after his game ended:

Bengals receiver A.J. Green shared those sentiments:

Ultimately, the Patriots would win, leaving the Bengals with the No. 3 seed, and they'll now host the San Diego Chargers in the first round of the playoffs: 

All-Pro defensive tackle Geno Atkins, currently on the injured reserve list, got straight down to business when talking about the Bengals' goal entering the playoffs:

The Bengals will now be off until next Sunday when they host the Chargers looking to end a drought of two decades without a playoff win. Hopefully for them, there will be more celebratory Twitter reactions next Sunday afternoon.
