The linebackers used their phones to watch the final minutes of Sunday's game.
Despite being on opposite sides of the country, Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis and San Francisco 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis watched the end of the Atlanta Falcons-Seattle Seahawks game together.
On their phones.
"I was on my way home, he FaceTimed me and we watching the end and how crazy it was," Willis said on 95.7 The Game.
Each of their teams won impressive playoff games Saturday, so both were likely off Sunday.
Lewis and the Ravens upset the top-seeded Denver Broncos, 38-35, in a double-overtime slugfest. Justin Tucker kicked a 47-yard field goal toward the beginning of the second overtime to send Baltimore to the AFC Championship game to play the New England Patriots.
Lewis, who is on his retirement tour, was a force in that game. He finished with a game-high 17 total tackles.
Willis and the 49ers, meanwhile, capped Saturday night with a convincing win over the Green Bay Packers. Second-year quarterback Colin Kaepernick put the team on his back, throwing for 263 yards and rushing for 181 more. He had four total touchdowns.
Like Lewis, Willis led his team with seven solo tackles. He also had a sack on Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
