Sean Payton Drops Atlanta Falcons Joke on Fox Pregame Show
During his 16 years as the Saints head coach, Payton embraced the heated rivalry with the Falcons, even in advertisements.
After quitting his post as Saints head coach last January, Payton has his sights set on a new gig.
He's spent this season as an analyst for FOX.
Following the Bengals upset win over the Bills yesterday, the city of Atlanta took a hit.
Had the Bills won, the AFC title game would've been played on a neutral site at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
The NFL sent out multiple press releases last week about the number of tickets sold for the potential game in Atlanta, something Cincinnati quarterback Joe Burrow was asked about in postgame.
FOX began their pregame show following the Bengals win.
With six individuals on the panel, it can be hard to get a word in, but Payton made sure to pipe in when he had a quick opportunity to troll the Falcons.
For a casual football fan, Payton's zinger was likely lost on them.
For Saints fans, they know exactly what he was doing.
