Unbothered: Official fails to escort bird off the field in NFL game
Week 6’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Pittsburgh Steelers was supposed to be a fun game with a large crowd. One occupant came onto the field and did not want to leave the game. After several seconds, the bird went into the back of the end zone.

This is not the first time a bird came onto the field this week to get into the middle of the action. On Wednesday, October 12, a goose flew onto the field for game 2 of the NLDS series in Los Angeles between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the San Diego Padres. The goose rather a lot of attention from major media outlets and social media with it being stubborn to leave.
Luckily for impatient Bucs and Steelers fans, the bird did not take long to get off the field. Pittsburgh currently leads 7-6 through the middle of the 2nd quarter.
