Three weeks after the incident, the 24-year-old is recovering and came for the divisional game at the Highmark Stadium.

At the two-minute warning of the first half, Hamlin was shown on the stadium Jumbotron from the suite where he was watching the match. He gestured for the audience to cheer on the defense, which was defending Joe Burrow and the Bengals’ offense on the goal line. The Bills safety then made a heart with his hands before holding up three fingers, representing his jersey number.

At the end of the third quarter, the scores were Bengals 24 and Bills 10. They can essentially put this match away with a long scoring drive here.
At halftime, the scores were 17-7. In the first two quarters, Cincinnati has held control of this game in snowy Buffalo. Joe Burrow led back-to-back touchdown drives to start the game, while the Bengals’ defense held the Bills’ offense to consecutive three-and-outs that gave Zac Taylor’s team a 14-point lead at the end of the first quarter. Josh Allen and Company were able to get into a rhythm on their third possession of the day as the quarterback finished off the 13-play drive with a goal-line touchdown. However, the Bengals responded by driving down the field to kick a field goal to extend the lead back to double-digits before the break.
