NBC Awkwardly Transitions From Mourning Queen Elizabeth To Fans Loudly Cheering For NFL Football During Pregame Show

The death of Queen Elizabeth didn’t appear to affect Americans’ enthusiasm for the return of NFL football.

On Thursday afternoon, Queen Elizabeth passed away at the age of 96 on the same day as the NFL’s season opener in the states.

The NFL honored Queen Elizabeth with a moment of silence before the Bills-Rams game that fans didn’t seem to care about.

During NBC’s pregame broadcast, the network awkwardly transitioned from talking about Queen Elizabeth’s death to fans loudly cheering the return of football.

“Queen Elizabeth was honored all around the world, but back here at home we’re been waiting a long time for this, the start of the football season”
