To celebrate the start of the NFL’s regular season on Thursday — with the Houston Texans facing off against reigning Super Bowl champions the Kansas City Chiefs — ESPN released a hilarious video featuring a number of players singing along to Céline Dion’s “It’s All Coming Back to Me Now.” In the video, the athletes — including twin brothers Shaquem and Shaquill Griffin, who both play for the Seattle Seahawks, as well as Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew — playfully show off their excitement to get back onto the field while lip-syncing and belting along to the hit 1996 tune.

“Anticipation for the upcoming NFL season is running hot, and we are incredibly excited to celebrate the return of the NFL with the entire sports community,” Laura Gentile, senior vice president of marketing at ESPN, said in a press release. Although football fans are always ready for a new NFL season to start, emotions are especially heightened given everything the country has been through this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. “Our creative approach reflects how we are all – now more than ever – feeling, as we crave football and show fans, players, coaches, teams, and ESPN all coming together to rejoice, reflect and exhale,” Gentile added.
