It’s been nearly 10 months since the New England Patriots ripped the Atlanta Falcons’ hearts out in Super Bowl LI.
But as Jonah Hill once told us: People don’t forget.
The Saints plan to keep the “28-3” joke alive at Mercedes-Benz Superdome ahead of their Week 16 clash with Atlanta, according to those on the scene in New Orleans.
The Falcons, of course, blew a 28-3 lead in the second half of Super Bowl LI to lose 34-28 in overtime.
Saints fans got the trolling ball rolling early Sunday, as one fan fashioned a simple yet effective hat.
Those outside the domed stadium also could witness the trolling, as a plane flying a banner that read, “28-3 Merry XMas” was seen circling the field before kickoff.
New Orleans isn’t the only NFL team — or the only NFC South team, to be exact — to give the Falcons a hard time about last February’s collapse.
In fact, it’s not even the first time this season the Saints have messed with their division rival — wide receiver Willie Snead rocked a “28-3”-themed shirt to New Orleans’ Week 14 game in Atlanta, while there were some aerial antics, as well.
The Saints lost that game 20-17, though, so they’d better back up their trash talk in a matchup with huge playoff implications.
UPDATE (1:05 p.m. ET): It’s not Super Bowl-related, but this is an awesome troll-job by New Orleans:
That’s a nod to a MARTA bus hilariously blocking a television camera as it tried to film the implosion of the Georgia Dome back in November.
