Falcons mascot tackles, shoves youth football player during halftime game
Freddie The Falcon doesn’t mess around, no matter the opponent.
A clip from NFL on FOX is going viral on Twitter Sunday. During a halftime pee wee game, the Atlanta Falcons mascot can be seen tackling a youth football player in pads and a helmet. Freddie goes up to the ball carrier out of bounds after the play and gives the young athlete a push.

The clip will remind some fans of Braves mascot Blooper stiff-arming kids on the field back in August.

Atlanta mascots are clearly built different.
The Falcons’ defense could probably use some of the intensity these Atlanta mascots show on the field. The Cincinnati Bengals had 537 yards of offense in a 35-17 win over the Falcons on Sunday.
