DraftKings Troll Falcons with '28 to 3 Comeback Special' Contest for $28.03

The New England Patriots host the Atlanta Falcons in a Super Bowl LI rematch on Sunday, which means way too many 28-3 jokes are coming.

DraftKings, a company founded and headquartered in Boston, poked fun at Atlanta's championship misfortune by creating a "28-3 Comeback Special" NFL contest that costs $28.03. None of the site's other daily fantasy competitions have such an entry fee.

The two-game slate features Sunday night's New England-Atlanta showdown and Monday night's NFC East matchup between Washington and the Philadelphia Eagles. New England enters Week 7 ranked last in total defense, so an event created at Atlanta's expense could be won using Matt Ryan, Devonta Freeman and/or Julio Jones.
