Patriotic NFL Star Gets Emotional During Military Vet’s Anthem Performance, Then Has the Game of His Life


There is not much downside to playing with an elite, superstar quarterback.

Whether that’s Patrick Mahomes, Tom Brady or Dan Marino, there’s a certain pep to your step when you know your offense is being piloted by a Hall of Fame caliber player.

But if there’s a downside to having such a star player on your squad, it’s that the spotlight is typically squared firmly on him and seldom deviates. Again, it’s a small grievance in the grand scheme of things (assuredly, most NFL players would rather their quarterback be talented and a bit self-centered, as opposed to humble and awful), but it is tough sometimes for the non-quarterbacks to get their flowers.

Not so for Kansas City Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones, whose stellar play was instrumental in his team’s 23-20 win over the Cincinnati Bengals in Sunday’s AFC Championship game.

But that recognition for Jones truly began before a single snap was even played.

Jones, the talented Pro Bowl and All Pro interior defensive lineman for the Chiefs, was spotted getting visibly emotional during a genuinely moving rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner” before the game began.

(As a side note, more credit needs to be given to United States Navy Veteran Generald Wilson, who belted that beautiful rendition of the national anthem. There were no frills or lame attempts to “stand out.” It was just a beautifully sung anthem. Period.)

Of course, this wouldn’t be…
