Football fans received the highly-anticipated NFL 2019 season schedule last night, but one team’s announcement seemed to stand out. The Atlanta Falcons revealed their top matches this season in a video that paid homage to the hit TV show Game of Thrones.
“From Atlanta to Minnesota, prepare to conquer,” the team said in the caption of the video.
The video included a tribute to the show’s opening title sequence, showing each team they are going to play during the season with visuals of the specific stadium. Fans were quick to notice the “S” falling from the Saints’ billboard in the clip, and a small incident which included a “no-call” from a referee, an apparent diss to the New Orleans team, pointing at their NFC championship loss last season. To wrap-up the one-minute video, a message appeared that read: “Football Is Coming.”
Check out the video below:
This year, the team is slated to play against the Vikings on September 8, followed by an away game at the Colt’s stadium with home games at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium against the Eagles and Titans. Throughout the season, they’ll take on the Texans, Cardinals, Rams, Seahawks, Saints, Panthers, 49ers, Jaguars, and Bucs. View the full schedule below.
