Omar's whistle is iconic around Baltimore and will be forever remembered.

The whistle, synonymous for impending trouble, was played before the Ravens' pregame introductions ahead of "Sunday Night Football" against the Kansas City Chiefs – Baltimore's home opener and first game with a packed stadium since the 2019 season.

It's a tribute to late actor Michael K. Williams, who played Omar Little in the Baltimore-based TV show, "The Wire." Williams was found dead in his Brooklyn home on Sept. 6.
