A single mother and her child will be watching the New England Patriots take on the Tennessee Titans Saturday night, courtesy of Brandin Cooks.
The Patriots receiver posted a message on Twitter Saturday, offering two free tickets as a way to pay homage to his own mother, who was a single mom.

Previously, Cooks has credited his work ethic to his mother, who raised him and his two brothers by herself.
“[My work ethic] came from my mom, raising three boys on her own, working early mornings, multiple jobs … she didn’t sign up for that – I signed up for football,” Cooks said, per CBS Boston. “So if she can do it, I can do it too.”
This is just a tremendous gesture by Cooks. No doubt, his mother, Andrea Cooks, is smiling from ear to ear.
