ANIMATED: T.J. Yates' Mom Uncovers Her Eyes Just In Time

T.J. Yates' parents probably had to sit through innumerable football games for their son, from pee wee right up through his debut as an NFL starter last week. This week Yates put on a show for mom and dad, an early Christmas present. Yates led a late-game drive that ended with a last-second game-winning touchdown. 

Mom and the whole family were more than pleased.

Easy mom. 

Earlier in the game cameras caught her averting her eyes, either confused about what the media had to say about Yates prior to game or maybe just not a fan of the big hits and brutal back and forth.

See, mom, it all worked out in the end.
