Atlanta rolled over New Orleans today, 30-14. The win kept the 6-9 Falcons alive in the sad and depressing NFC South race, while eliminating the disappointing Saints. This happened despite the fact that NO’s Jalen Saunders brought the opening kickoff back 99 yards, setting up a very early 1 yard touchdown run by Mark Ingram.
Before the ensuing kickoff, Devin Hester helped a hard-working official relax by giving him a nice, firm shoulder massage. What an awesome guy!
NFL officials are required to use their arms and shoulders a lot during the average game- could be to throw a flag, communicate a penalty, or simply just raise the roof. So it’s really nice that Hester noticed that and helped this guy out. Good job, Devin.
