Football is coming.

Although we are still five months away from the 2019 NFL season, the Atlanta Falcons sure know how to present a season schedule and possibly set the expectations high for future releases.

The NFL released the schedules of all 32 teams on Wednesday, and the Falcons wanted to have fun and show their fandom of “Game of Thrones” by using the series’ opening credits for inspiration.

The team tweeted a video of their schedule which uses the same setup seen in the opening credits of the series. There’s no Winterfell or King’s Landing, but there’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium and other recognizable stadiums across the league.
