Fans of the New Orleans Saints never miss an opportunity for a good, old-fashioned 28-3 joke.
The Saints are in Atlanta for a “Thursday Night Football” tilt against the Atlanta Falcons, and a little statement was orchestrated before the game.
Whether it was one fan or a group, enough money was raised to get a banner that read “28-3 Never Forget” flying around the vicinity over Mercedes-Benz Stadium in homage to the Falcons’ Super Bowl LI collapse at the hands of the New England Patriots.
Here’s a look:
Someone captured it in video and caught some, let’s say less than amused, Falcons fans’ reactions as well.
The Saints have a well-documented history of reminding the Falcons of the meltdown. Whether it’s in the way how they tip in restaurants, or by putting it on a billboard, or even getting it put on a Snapchat filter, they take nearly as much pleasure as Patriots fans in those two numbers.
So as long as Saints and Patriots fans have any say, it’s probably safe to assume the Falcons never will forget that fateful second half.
