After years of watching embarrassing woke antics, patriotic NFL fans were moved after one of the Super Bowl coaches wept during the National Anthem Sunday night. Nick Sirianni became head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles on January 24, 2021. He had previously worked as the offensive coordinator for the Indianapolis Colts, enjoying three successful years.
On Sunday, 41-year-old coach Sirianni took the Philadelphia Eagles team to their fourth Super Bowl appearance in the franchise’s history.
During the National Anthem, Sirianni was moved to tears.
One tweet said, “Eagles coach Nick Sirianni crying during the national anthem got me, man…if you don’t feel this, you don’t have a pulse. Let’s Gooo!!”

Although the Super Bowl win ultimately went to the Kansas City Chiefs, Sirianni was moved in the same way Americans across the country were moved over the patriotic rendition.
After the Chief’s win, Michael Penny tweeted, “Congratulations to the Kansas City Chiefs as Patrick Mahomes proves he’s the greatest quarterback of all time. As they defeat Philadelphia Eagles in grand style. Final 38-35 chiefs.

In his first five seasons as a starter, Patrick Mahomes has led the Chiefs to three Super Bowls. The only other quarterback in NFL history to achieve that level of success is Tom Brady. Mahomes played through an injury after suffering an ankle sprain in a game against the Jacksonville Jaguars during the second round of the playoffs. Kansas City was ultimately victorious over the Jaguars.
In a 2020 Fellowship of Christian Athletes video, Kansas City Quarterback Mahomes spoke about his Faith and the importance of prayer. “Before every game, I walk on the field, and I just do a prayer at the goalpost. And I thank God for those opportunities, and I thank God for just letting me be on a stage where I can glorify Him. And I feel like the biggest thing that I pray for is that whatever happens, win or lose, that I’m glorifying Him and doing everything the way that He wants me to.”
He continued, “Faith is huge for me. Just being able to stay on the right track and live life knowing that I can be free, God will have me, and He’ll always accept me.”
A Kansas City fan tweeted a photo of Mahomes praying on the field prior to the game. “Prayers work, and let’s all pray together and bring that trophy home!!
