Sunday Night Football is normally played on Sunday, not Wednesday afternoon.

Quickly, we learned Wednesday afternoon why that is, as the Pittsburgh Steelers hosted the Baltimore Ravens in a special edition of Sunday Night Football that was originally slated to be played on Thanksgiving.

Robert Griffin III and the Ravens went three-and-out on their first drive, clearly missing the presences of Lamar Jackson and Mark Ingram II, among others.

The Steelers went three-and-out on their first drive, but quickly got the ball back when Griffin, the former No. 2 overall pick, fumbled the ball.

However, despite taking over at the Ravens' 25-yard line, the Steelers were unable to score, with Ben Roethlisberger throwing an ugly interception on fourth and goal.

Fortunately for the Steelers, the Griffin quickly allowed them to make up for the failed fourth-and-goal attempt, as Joe Haden picked him off and returned it for a touchdown in the same endzone that Roethlisberger had failed to push the ball into.

The Ravens went three-and-out again, but recovered a muffed punt off of the hands of Ray-Ray McLoud, with Gus Edwards eventually running the ball in for a touchdown.

In many senses, the first quarter of Wednesday afternoon's game felt like a fever dream, one that social media was happy to jump all over:
