Patriots Troll Falcons on Opening Night Scoreboard

0:46 | NFL
2017 New England Patriots Preview
Thursday September 7th, 2017

The Patriots begin their season against the Chiefs tonight, not the Falcons. The score is currently 0–0, not 28–3. 

But, New England would like us to remember a different time, a special one in team history, because they are the Patriots and they are insufferable.

Did you know the Falcons blew a 28–3 lead in the Super Bowl? Because I knew that.

The Patriots did too. It doesn’t take an Apple watch.
