On Sunday, the 2-2 Oakland Raiders played the 3-1 Chicago Bears at the brand new, totally pimped out Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England.
Many expected the Bears to win, even with quarterback Mitchell Trubisky on the shelf after suffering a dislocated left shoulder in Chicago’s win over the Vikings in week four. Seventy-six percent of bets and 71% of dollars wagered on the spread came in on the Bears, according to The Action Network.
One of those people in the stands hoping for a Chicago Bears victory was Game of Thrones star and Queen of the North Sophie Turner.
Sadly, for Turner and Bears fans the world over, the Raiders managed to summon up enough good plays to send Chicago back to the United States with a 24-21 loss after Chase Daniel threw a decisive interception directly to Oakland cornerback Gareon Conley with just over a minute remaining in the game.
So after the game, with a burn more befitting the Mother of Dragons Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryen, Raiders Twitter went straight at Sansa Stark for her perceived disrepect of the Silver and Black.
That game had a better finish than Thrones. #RaiderNation https://t.co/jvxCdHUC92

Naturally, Raiders fans were gracious winners who didn’t find that kind of gloating at all necessary. Riiight…
