Safety Damar Hamlin roared his approval after Buffalo Bills teammate Nyheim Hines returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown against the New England Patriots on Sunday.

The play was the first for Buffalo since Hamlin went into cardiac arrest during Monday night’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Hamlin tweeted a photo of himself preparing for “GAMETIME!!!” while watching the game from the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

And here’s how Hamlin reacted on Twitter after Hines found the right sideline as part of a 96-yard touchdown return on Sunday:

“OMFG!!!!!!!!!!!!!” Hamlin tweeted.

Hamlin also reacted on Twitter after tight end Dawson Knox later scored, then made a heart sign with his hands directed toward Hamlin.

“I love you too @dawsonknox,” he wrote.
