RG3 and Cousins For The Win – #PulseAnalytics Monitoring the Redskins and Ravens
Sometimes your best friends are your cousins! I assure you Kirk Cousins is on Robert Griffin III’s (RG3) Christmas card list after he came on “in relief” of an injured RG3 to secure a win against the Baltimore Ravens in overtime. RG3 continues to impress as a rookie, and Cousins extended the Redskins’ winning ways who are now winners of 4 straight games to keep pace in the NFC East.
My hometown Denver Broncos had already extended their own winning streak on Thursday, so I settled down to watch the Cowboys/Bengals game. However, I used Mantis Pulse Analytics to monitor the Redskins/Ravens game since I have a bottle of wine on the line with a buddy who happens to be a Ravens fan. The bet is “who ends up with the best record – the Broncos or the Ravens”. I’m liking my odds now, folks!
So what were Redskins and Ravens fans thinking/tweeting/Facebooking/Google Plussing…
First, you can imagine the panic in this game. The Ravens probably felt the inevitability of a loss. I imagine the Redskins players and fans went a few minutes without breathing when they saw RG3 go down with a knee injury. Every true NFL fan hopes the MRI shows a strained knee versus sprain or ACL damage!
This next screenshot is indicative of how regional the fan base is for both the Baltimore Ravens and Washington Redskins. I am sure there would have been more mentions across the US if this was a Sunday/Monday/Thursday night game. However, Sunday day games are built for regional coverage.
Finally, here is a satellite view. I’ve expanded a few of the tweets (and hovered over one) to show some happy Redskins fans in DC!
It has been a special season in Denver with Peyton Manning on an MVP-pace after taking a year off with neck surgery. However, it has also been a special season for rookie quarterbacks like RG3, Andrew Luck, Russell Wilson, and Brandon Weeden.
What has been your favorite NFL game this year? And how about a hand for these rookie quarterbacks?!?
