The Atlanta Falcons may never stop hearing jokes about blowing a 28-3 lead in Super Bowl LI against the New England Patriots in 2017.

The New Orleans Saints, Atlanta's NFC South rival, announced plans for renovations in the SuperDome. In advertising their new escalators, the Saints couldn't resist taking a not-so-subtle shot at the Falcons:

The Falcons will not have to wait long to make the Saints pay for their pettiness, as the two teams open the 2022 season against one another on Sept. 11 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. Their second matchup of the year is at the SuperDome on Dec. 18.
