You don't come across much patriotism in the NFL these days, so when a hint of pride for the U.S. surfaces, it surely catches attention.

During this year's Super Bowl, Reba McEntire delivered a stirring rendition of the national anthem that left many viewers deeply moved. However, it was Chiefs defensive lineman Chris Jones who couldn't hold back tears.

Watch the video:

From TMZ:

During the performance, CBS' broadcast jumped from player to player with many keeping their heads down and staying focused ... though Chris Jones, the Chiefs' two-time All-Pro defensive lineman was clearly carried away by the moment.

Check out the vid -- Chris, number 95 with K.C., has tears streaking his face while Reba made her way through the song ... which took 95 seconds BTW, greater than the 90.5-second over/under mark for all you sports bettors out there.

He's not the only person who was moved by the performance. Lots of fans have taken to X to tweet out their impressions of RM's singin' ... and opinions are overwhelmingly positive.



It's refreshing to witness NFL players embracing  the national anthem and showing some pride in what our country stands for. Here's to hoping this trend persists, and our football stadiums become less of a political  battleground and more about the game and the pride it instills in our nation.
