Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals were expected to easily defeat the shorthanded Baltimore Ravens in the opening round of the playoffs.
Whereas the Bengals were the top team in the division and more or less playing at full strength, Baltimore was once again with its star quarterback, Lamar Jackson.
Amazingly enough, the Ravens kept it competitive throughout despite that. If not for one ill-timed goal line fumble, they easily could have pulled off the upset. Heck, even with it, they still nearly sent the game into overtime with a miracle Hail Mary.
While the Bengals didn’t have the best of showings on Sunday, that didn’t do much to hamper the good times of Burrow’s girlfriend, Olivia Holzmacher.
Holzmacher has been a mainstay at Bengals games over the past few years, and this one was no exception. She shared some of her experience from the Ravens game on her Instagram Stories, and the imagery immediately went viral:
In a lot of ways, Holzmacher occupies something of a perfect middle ground.
The Bengals obviously didn’t dominate in the way they probably should have this past weekend, but neither did Buffalo.

Both teams will have a chance to remedy what ailed them in Week 1 of the postseason and replay one of the most epic games from last year’s playoffs next week.
Win or loss, Holzmacher will definitely be there to cheer Burrow on every step of the way next week.
Is another Super Bowl trip in the couple’s short-term future? Time will tell.
