It was almost as difficult to analyze as the loss itself.
Ravens head coach John Harbaugh and Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin shook hands after the game, and like many would expect an embrace between the two men to be, it was awkward.
I saw the post-game handshake on television as most fans did, but the cameras caught the exchange late—after the handshake, but not before the uncomfortable departure.
Check out the video with this post to hear exactly how oddly the exchange appeared in real time.
It wasn't exactly as intense as the handshake between Harbaugh's brother, Jim, and Lions coach Jim Schwartz in 2011, but it was something.
TELL US: What's your take on the handshake? Was it just a normal post-game handshake between rivals? Was Harbaugh trying to be too gracious in defeat? Or was Mike Tomlin doing everything but ducking John Harbaugh? Leave a comment.
