What used to be a fairly straightforward affair has transformed into a bit of a spectacle thanks to marketing departments across the league that have used the occasion as an excuse to flex their creative muscles and create some Tremendous Content in the process.

That was a very hard act to follow, and the franchise wisely subscribed to the “If It Ain’t Broke Don’t Fix It” mentality in 2023 by harnessing the same formula to reveal its slate of games for the upcoming regular season.

Los Angeles included a number of fantastic references while poking fun at other teams, including:

However, they really went above and beyond thanks to the easter egg in the segment concerning their Week 15 matchup with the guys in silver and black.
