From NESN:

This is one brave pigeon.

We don’t have a lot of context for this video, but it comes from this past Sunday’s 15-0 Oakland Raiders win over the Kansas City Chiefs. For about the last seven minutes of the first half (in real time, not game time), this bird decided to crash the action, refusing to leave the playing surface despite being nearly trampled by players and cheerleaders multiple times — at one point even standing between linebackers as the Raiders took a snap. It was eventually collected by stadium grounds crew at halftime.

Maybe he just wanted a better view of one of the NFL’s most historic rivalries?
