Falcons Fans Bro Out, Nearly Ruin Emotional Moment Between Deion Sanders And Devin Hester

Devin Hester surpassed Deion Sanders for the most return touchdowns in NFL history Thursday night, taking a 62-yard punt back for his 20th touchdown as Prime Time looked on from the Atlanta sideline.
Hester and Sanders, a Hall of Famer and NFL Network analyst, apparently go way back, and the two shared a highly emotional post-game moment as Falcons fans did their best to drown out their sincere words of affection with chants and animal noises.
Seriously, it's hard to hear what loving things these guys are saying about each other as the "De-vin Hes-ter!" chants crescendo. It's a great moment and a great video, but fellas, can you keep in down? We're trying to watch a Steve Mariucci-sanctioned love-fest here (via @_MarcusD_):

Remember: It takes a lot to laugh, it takes a man who loves you as a man for breaking your touchdown record to cry.
Here's the record-breaking touchdown -- note the high-stepping tribute to Sanders, which drew a penalty flag:
