The Detroit Lions tried to mess with Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson even before kickoff Saturday at Ford Field in Detroit, Mich.

The dome blasted songs by rapper Future as the two teams warmed up for the final game of Saturday’s NFL tripleheader.

Wilson has famously beefed with Future over the years. The Broncos QB is married to Future’s ex-fiancee Ciara.

The Future playlist continued to play for about half an hour. In case there was any doubt that it was a troll job, the stadium music changed to songs from a different artist the moment Wilson stepped off the field.

Coincidentally or not, the Broncos offense seemed to fall into a Future-induced coma during the first half against the Lions. Detroit outscored Denver 21-0 after 2 quarters and went on to win 42-17 over the visitors.

Wilson went 18/32 for 223 yards and 1 touchdown in the loss.

Perhaps other teams might want to employ a similar tactic against the 9-time Pro Bowler in the Future.
