Kansas City Chiefs star Chris Jones overruled former NFL star Colin Kaepernick when he shed a few tears during the national anthem before the Chiefs’ playoff game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
U.S. Navy veteran General Wilson sang the national anthem before Sunday’s AFC championship game and as CBS cameras panned the players the camera caught Jones on the sideline. (See Video Below)
He was overcome with emotion, with tears streaming down his face as Wilson sang “The Star-Spangled Banner.” The defensive tackle had a monster game helping send his team to the Super Bowl.
He had four total tackles, including two sacks and three tackles for a loss. He also had quarterback Joe Burrow looking over his shoulder all night delivering 5 hits in the Bengals’ star quarterback.

After the game, which the Chiefs won 23-20, he fired back at Bengals players who disrespected the team by calling Chiefs stadium, Arrowhead Stadium, “Burrowhead.”
“Let me tell y’all something. Don’t ever, ever, ever — and I’m gonna look in the camera while I say this — disrespect Arrowhead.
“I don’t care how many times you’ve beat us, don’t ever disrespect Arrowhead Stadium at G.E.H.A. Field.
“There was a lot of talking going on.
“I’m not really much of a talker. It’s a full circle 360, man.
“These are the moments I prepare for in the offseason.
“I dedicated my offseason to this moment last year when I missed two sacks to win the game and I put it on myself.
“This game, we’re gonna win up front. And that’s what we did.
“We got a resilient group in our room.”
