Neither the Washington Redskins nor their fans were happy with Thursday night’s 32-21 loss to the New York Giants. However, Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall did make one fan’s day.
Hall left the game early in the third quarter with a non-contact injury and, in the stadium hallway, encountered a young Redskins fan who gave him words of encouragement. NFL Network analyst Shaun O’Hara, a former Giant, witnessed the interaction and posted the result on his Instagram account.

Special moment just happened in the tunnel @mlstadium Brian here, a 12 yr old @redskins fan just saw @dhall23skins in the hallway & said "Hey DeAngelo, I'll say a prayer for you." Hall said thanks kid, I needed that….and then threw him his game jersey. #TrueStory #powerofprayer #thatjusthappened #MeanJoeGreene #classy
O’Hara’s “Mean” Joe Greene reference was a callback to the Pittsburgh Steelers legend’s iconic Coca-Cola commercial.
