‘God is real,’ says Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen after game honoring Damar Hamlin
Players, NFL teams, and fans drew attention to the number 3, Hamlin’s number, all weekend by drawing it on signs, buying his jersey, creating custom-made clothing, highlighting the number 3 on the 30-yard line, and showcasing it on stadium jumbotrons
In his postgame interview, Allen said that Kevin Kearns, the Bills’ director of communications, told him that “it’s been three years and three months since the last kickoff return [for the Bills]. So, it’s pretty cool.”
The number 3 showed up in more statistics, as CBS reporter Tracy Wolfson told Allen after the game that he threw three touchdown passes and that the Bills defense made three interceptions.
The Bills said on Jan. 6 that “per the physicians at [University of Cincinnati Medical Center], Damar’s breathing tube was removed overnight. He continues to progress remarkably in his recovery. His neurologic function remains intact and he has been able to talk to his family and care team.”
