The 2019 NFL schedule was ficially revealed last night, and some the 32 NFL teams took to social media with creative video packages detailing their 17-week slate.
For instance, the Atlanta Falcons took inspiration from the Game Of Thrones’ opening credit scene as they revealed their opponents for Weeks 1 thru 17.
At the :40 mark in the video posted above, you’ll notice a group Saints marching towards Mercedes-Benz Stadium for their divisional showdown against the Falcons on November 28.
You’ll also notice a rogue Ram running roughshod over one the Saints, followed by a referee running in to rule the play incomplete.
Of course, this is the Falcons’ way rubbing salt in the wound stemming from the Saints’ devastating loss in the NFC Championship Game, in which Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman trucked Saints receiver Tommylee Lewis well before the third-down pass arrived. No flags were thrown for pass interference and the Saints were forced to kick a field goal, allowing the Rams time to march down the field and send the game into overtime.
As we know, the Rams went on to win the NFC title game, and the NFL later implemented a rule change that will allow ficials to review pass interference calls, including non-calls. But the pain still lingers, and the Falcons did a great job reminding their hated division rivals.
