The Jacksonville Jaguars and Tennessee Titans played the most important game of their seasons over the weekend where the winner would be going to the playoffs as AFC South Champions and the season would end for the losing team.
Despite the significance of the game, the two teams came together in the middle of the field for a group prayer.
It was a miraculous view as each “3” at the 30-yard lines of every NFL stadium was outlined in red in honor of Buffalo Bills’ Damar Hamlin’s uniform number. All coaches in the season had the option to wear a warmup shirt with “Love for Damar” printed on with his No. 3.
Patches with Hamlin’s No. 3 was worn by the Bills, along with stadiums in all sports showing positive message for Hamlin and their thoughts. Every game will have a “moment of support” and encourage fans to cheer for Hamlin and his family.
With all these prayers, Hamlin has shown significant improvements in recent days after going through a disturbing cardiac arrest on the field on Monday night’s game against Cincinnati Bengals. He went through a nine-minute-long CPR on the field with medical staff using a defibrillator.
Hamlin made his first public comments since the incident on Saturday in an Instagram post.
“When you put real love out into the world it comes back to you 3x’s as much…” he wrote. “The Love has been overwhelming, but I’m thankful for every single person that prayed for me and reached out. We brung the world back together behind this. If you know me you know this only gone make me stronger. On a long road keep praying for me!” The Instagram post read.
When he first woke up earlier this week, he reportedly asked his doctors via writing, who won Monday’s game. He soon learned that it was postponed before it got canceled. He also reportedly spoke with his teammates on Friday.
His toy drive charity on the other hand has received incredible support from all across the world. It raised over $8 million in just around a week widely surpassing its original $2,500 goal.
