Nick Sirianni probably also teared up when he saw defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon’s game plan, that did not include any blitzes on Patrick Mahomes, which resulted in no sacks.
As Chris Stapleton sang “The Star-Spangled Banner,” Sirianni wept.
A Fox camera lingered on Sirianni for 10 seconds before cutting away.
At the start of the third quarter, Fox included Sirianni’s tears in a first-half highlight reel.
Sirianni is an emotional guy, prone to throwing his headset and mugging for TV cameras.
“I don’t really mind that. I wouldn’t like a coach who didn’t wear his emotions out on the field,” Eagles offensive tackle Jordan Mailata said last week. With Sirianni, he said, “you know when he’s happy, you know when he’s angry.”
