It was several weeks ago that the Chicago Bears and Buffalo Bills played against each other at Soldier Field.
While the two teams fought that day for a win, Monday night saw players from the Bears roster supporting Damar Hamlin.
Hamlin, who’s 24-years-old, left Monday night’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals after suffering a cardiac arrest.
While he’s a member of the Bills, the horrific incident saw an outpouring of support from several Bears players.
Starting quarterback Justin Fields tweeted out prayers for Hamlin.
Prayers up.. 🙏🏽

However, he wasn’t the only one, as safety Eddie Jackson was also praying that he was ok.

While the list goes on beyond these players, it’s clear how NFL players are coming together as one after what happened to Hamlin.
Even though these players fought hard weeks ago to win a game of football, they are brotherhood that comes together during trying times.
The events from Monday night give players pause, as they continue to process what happened to Hamlin.
With emotions running high, these players came out to support one another and support Hamlin and his family.
While the game of football is competitive, these players show how much they care about each other.
Seeing the outpouring of concern and emotions from these players isn’t seen often.
However, Monday night was a time where everyone was showing a side rarely seen by others.
Despite the rarity of the situation, players from all teams will come together as one whenever something like this happens.
