Jan. 22 (UPI) -- Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin made his first public appearance on Sunday, joining his team in the locker room ahead of its Divisional Round game against the Cincinnati Bengals at Highmark Stadium in Orchard Park, N.Y.
The Bills tweeted a video clip of Hamlin entering the stadium in a utility terrain vehicle before the game. It was his first time in attendance at a game since going into cardiac arrest during a Monday Night Football game against the Bengals on Jan. 2.
Hamlin watched the game from a suite in the stadium. Members of his family were also in attendance.
The Bills were unable to set up a rematch against the Kansas City Chiefs next week, losing to Cincinnati 27-10. The Bengals will face Kansas City at Arrowhead Stadium for the AFC Championship for the second year in a row. It is the first time an AFC Championship matchup has been repeated in back-to-back years since the Baltimore Ravens faced the New England Patriots in 2011 and 2012.
