The two hottest games for Twitter buzz during the playoffs were the @Ravens vs. @Patriots and the @49ers vs. @Falcons, raking in nearly 4 million Tweets collectively. The playoffs’ most popular players on Twitter? @RayLewis ranked first for chatter, followed by @rgiii, Tom Brady and @M_Ryan02.

Throughout the playoffs, Twitter is where fans, athletes, commentators and more went before, during and after the game for all things NFL.
