Grab a tissue: Jim Kelly shares his Thanksgiving message

Buffalo Bills fans, grab some tissues. CBS Sports wants to start your Thanksgiving off with a good cry.

CBS Sports, which will broadcast the 4:30 p.m. Bills game against the Dallas Cowboys, tweeted a 2 1/2 minute video of former Bills quarterback Jim Kelly sharing his Thanksgiving message. The video was broadcast right before the game began.

Kelly was the quarterback the last time the Bills played on Thanksgiving in 1994.

The video was shot at Kelly’s Western New York home. It chronicles the "heartbreak" of four Super Bowl losses, the death of his son, Hunter, and his cancer fight. Despite all that, Kelly says he's still thankful.

"When I look back on my life, I am so thankful I had the teammates I had, my wife and two daughters and my son, Hunter, who's looking down on me. It taught me to never, ever give up. To keep fighting and be thankful each and every day," Kelly says in the film.

Hopefully there'll be no more need for that box of Kleenex after the Bills-Cowboys game is over.
