Patriots players send Damar Hamlin prayers amid 'chilling' situation originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

Football seems like a distant afterthought after what transpired Monday night in Cincinnati.

Bills safety Damar Hamlin collapsed midway through the first quarter of Buffalo's game against the Bengals after hitting Cincinnati wide receiver Tee Higgins. Hamlin received roughly 10 minutes of CPR from medical personnel on the field before being taken in an ambulance to University of Cincinnati Medical Center about 30 minutes after he collapsed.

The game was postponed about 35 minutes after Hamlin was taken to the hospital, and the Bills announced early Tuesday morning that the 24-year-old is "sedated" and in "critical condition" after suffering a cardiac arrest on the field.

It was an unprecedented and frightening situation for all involved, including those at home watching the game. The New England Patriots, who are scheduled to play the Bills next Sunday, tweeted prayers for Hamlin and the Buffalo organization.
