Hilarious ‘Bird Box’ memes offer comic relief for burned Saints fans

After a fierce Sunday of back-to-back playoff games between the final four, the NFL has its Super Bowl LIII competitors — and Saints fans are furious.

They’re channelling their frustration through Bird Box memes. 

In the final moments of a sudden death overtime period, the Los Angeles Rams defeated the New Orleans Saints 26-23, an upset many Saints fans blame on a controversial non-call from the fourth quarter. Rams defender Nickell Robey-Coleman has admitted to the alleged pass interference on Saints receiver Tommylee Lewis that effectively stopped what looked like a game winning drive by the Saints and led to overtime — where the Rams won on a long field goal. 

However, even as Twitter has erupted over the botched call, there is likely no recourse for the Louisiana team. Except of course, more tweets.

The missed call has inspired a torrent of back-and-forth debate between fans online as well as a number of memes, the most prominent of which is tied to Netflix’s thriller Bird Box and its viral challenge.

Accusing NFL officials of trying out the #BirdBoxChallenge while on the job, fans have relentlessly photoshopped star Sandra Bullock’s face onto the bodies of championship refs who were seemingly blind to the blatant foul. 

Others have ominously name-checked Bird Box in their NFL-related posts, allowing the connection to speak for itself.

Fans looking for more solace than a quick Bird Box chuckle have turned to an online petition requesting a rematch be ordered by NFL Commissioner Rodger Goodell — if not of the whole game, then at least of the last few minutes.

The Los Angeles Rams will go up against the New England Patriots Feb. 2 at 6:30 p.m. ET for the league championship — but will Saints fans be watching? I can’t see that.
