The image shows the unidentified man lending a hand as the ‘Star-Spangled Banner’ played throughout the stadium.

“Sports is about winning and losing. Except when it’s not. Today, at MetLife Stadium, @NOLAnews photographer @MichaelDeMocker saw a Saints fan helping to lift a disabled Giants fan out of his chair so he could stand during the National Anthem,” posted a reporter from ESPN.

The heartwarming image comes as the league struggles to appease patriotic fans over ongoing player protests during the anthem.
