The organization Direct Action Everywhere took credit for the protest writing on Twitter, “DxE activists disrupt Rams Bills with pink smoke flares to draw attention to 2 activists facing over a decade in prison for rescuing 2 sickly baby piglets from a WH Group / Smithfield Foods factory farm.”

The organization also shared video of the second activist getting slammed to the ground by event security around the 20 yard line.

The also released a press release that identifies the two women as Emek Echo and Katia Shokrai detailing they “ran across the field holding up red smoke flares and wearing shirts with ‘RIGHTTORESCUE.com’ text before being removed by event security.”

They claim the “protest aims to shine a light on what DxE calls a landmark trial for animal rights, food justice and free speech, and more broadly, the entire animal agricultural industry, which DxE says is inherently abusive and exploitative.”

The organization notes they are the same organization that disrupted Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest on July 4th.

During the famous Hot Dog Eating Contest, an activist wearing a Darth Vader mask held up a sign reading, “Expose Smithfield Deathstar.” Joey Chestnut proceeded to put the activist in a chokehold and throw the individual to the ground all while whoofing down a hot dog.

Despite the interruption, Chestnut won his 15th Hot Dog Eating Championship scarfing down 63 hot dogs in 10 minutes. It was his seventh consecutive victory and he beat second place Geoffrey Esper by 15.5 hot dogs.

The Bills ended up dominating the Rams beating them 31-10. Bills QB Josh Allen threw for 297 yards, three TDs, and two interceptions. He also rushed for 56 yards and one touchdown.

Rams QB Matthew Stafford threw for 240 yards, one touchdown, and three interceptions. He also fumbled the ball but was able to recover it. The Bills defense held the Rams to only a measly 52 total yards the entire game. They also sacked Stafford 7 times.

The Bills were so dominant they never punted the ball once albeit Allen threw the two interceptions and they also had two fumbles lost. Still, Stafford had two interceptions and the Rams still had to punt four times.
