BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Ravens fans are excited for Sunday when the team takes on the 49ers. Some lucky people are even heading to the Big Easy to see the game in person.
Jessica Kartalija checks out the NFL experience setup for New Orleans visitors.
The NFL has a huge setup where fans can meet the players and see what it’s like to be one.
It’s the closest thing to becoming a pro football player without actually setting foot on the field.
“It’s very exciting. Can’t explain it and to see Ray Lewis’ last game and just…seeing the Ravens back in the Super Bowl, it’s a great experience,” said a fan.
The NFL experience is just that: an experience.
“I think it’s outstanding. It’s wonderful to be down here in the city of New Orleans,” said a fan.
The best part is, you don’t need a special pass or a ticket to the game to feel like an NFL football player. It’s a day these fans will never forget.
“Very lucky and very excited,” said a fan who spent $2,000 to go to New Orleans.
