Sanders, who placed his ubiquitous do-rag on his hall bust at his ceremony in Canton, Ohio on Aug. 6, still had the red cloth on the bust at halftime of the Falcons' game against the Carolina Panthers.
Falcons owner Arthur Blank noted Sanders became the first Atlanta player in the hall and said Sanders' body of work represented "the very best" of the NFL.
Sanders asked fans "What time is it?" The fans responded "Prime Time!"
Sanders replied: "I love you. This is my home. I'm a Falcon. God bless you."
