The annual schedule reveal can only mean two things: the Dallas Cowboys are going to dominate primetime games -- they have six in 2023, tied for the most of any team -- and they're going to get trolled into oblivion by a team's schedule reveal.

The Cowboys admittedly did great work with their Yellowstone-themed reveal. Of course, the Chargers have cemented themselves as the NFL's gold standard for schedule reveals after their anime-focused 2022 video.

Pressured to return the same blueprint after last year's reveal took the football community by storm, Los Angeles did just that. The video has over 70,000 likes on Twitter and understandably so given the playful and hidden shots the social media team took at LA's opponents.

With the Chargers and Cowboys set to lock horns, fans had a feeling they'd have something special cooked up for Dallas in the reveal.

Not only did the Bolts bury Dak Prescott after his two-interception performance in the Cowboys' playoff loss against the 49ers, but they threw shade at the team's social account after it threw the QB under the bus following the loss.

Give the Chargers social media team the biggest raise possible.

The sheer attention-to-detail is unmatched. If you look closely at the 41-second mark, they show Prescott viewing the tweet from the Cowboys' official account after the 49ers loss. Los Angeles got both the picture of Dak studying the tablet and wording of the tweet spot on.

"Dak Prescott gave away the ball twice in the narrow loss to the 49ers, in a matchup the Cowboys had a chance to win if they didn’t again generate self-inflicted wounds."

For those who need a reminder:

Even as Cowboys fans, we can admit this is textbook trolling.

The tweet admittedly included an excerpt from the story and this is generally how the Cowboys' social team operates postgame. However, the general media and fans of the NFL interpreted it as friendly fire after Prescott's lackluster performance.

To rub salt in the wound, the video had a literal bus labeled "Content Team," as in Dallas' social team, going full steam ahead into the QB.

Just when you had forgotten all about the tweet, the Chargers disentomb it for their one million followers on Twitter. It's all fun and games, obviously, but we have to give Los Angeles credit for once again delivering the best schedule reveal of all 32 teams. It wasn't a contest.

We just wish Prescott and the Cowboys were left out of it, but hey, if you can't laugh at yourself who can you laugh at?
