"The Star-Spangled Banner" routinely gives Americans the chills — it may be a tough song to sing, but when done right it's a soaring, rousing national anthem. And on Monday night, it literally brought one football player to tears.

And as the camera passed by his face, Wayne could be seen with a tear running down his face.
