When the Buffalo Bills returned to the field Sunday for Monday Night Football for the first time since safety Damar Hamlin collapsed, the night was filled with honors for the NFL star and the medical staff who helped him.

While Hamlin remains hospitalized, the Bills players said they had him with them in spirit throughout the game.

Before the game, the Bills team account shared a video of special patches featuring Hamlin’s No. 3 sewn onto players’ uniforms for the game. When players arrived, they wore t-shirts and sweatshirts with Hamlin’s number on it.

After the Bills clinched the win, several of Hamlin’s teammates gave him touching tributes, which were tweeted on the Bills’ official team account.

“On to the playoffs – we made it for 3,” said Tre’Davious White, pointing to Hamlin’s number on his jersey and cap. “We represent for you.”

Returning to the locker room, the players held up the number 3 and made it clear that the win was for Hamlin.

After winning, Hamlin posted photos of a t-shirt with proceeds from sales going to first responders and the UC Trauma Center.

The shirts are printed with the inscription “Did we win?” — a reference to one of the first questions he scrawled for doctors and family members when he woke up in the hospital.

“We all won,” Hamlin tweeted Sunday, shortly after the Bills’ win became official. “I want to give back a little bit of the love you guys have shown me. Proceeds from this shirt go to First Responders and the UC Trauma Center.”
