Giants fans react to their 26-16 loss to the Steelers

The NFL is back, and with it comes the live-tweets. The Steelers were on national television for their Week 1 clash with the New York Giants.

It was clear that tweeters from both the Steelers and the Giants camps were ready to get this season started. Before Pittsburgh and New York even took the field at MetLife Stadium, fans were busy on social media.

Eventually, the Steelers would go on to win 26-16 in a game that Mike Tomlin’s team had control of throughout. Here are some of the best Twitter reactions of Giants fans before, during, and after their Week 1 loss to Pittsburgh:

The Steelers eventually answer on a drive sparked by a TJ Watt interception, but can only make it 10-9:
