The Braves may not be in Atlanta for Sunday's do-or-die game 7 against the Dodgers, but the city of Atlanta is behind the team. That extends to the NFL's Falcons, who took on the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday afternoon. When Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones caught a touchdown pass in the first quarter, he decided to show his support for the hometown nine as he "mixed it up."

While not a difficult move, he managed to pull it off pretty well. Compare:

Should the Braves want to pay back the gesture, perhaps we'll see Marcell Ozuna celebrate with "The Dirty Bird." He already busted out seemingly every celebration but this one in his Game 4 dinger.

The Braves are 4-2 in Game 7s in franchise history, but haven't played in one since their 15-0 victory over the Cardinals in 1996. They'll try to repeat that when the game begins at 8 p.m. ET on FOX and FS1.
