The NFL announced it will air a televised advertisement tonight promoting unity as it faces a barrage of attacks from President Trump. The ad was originally produced for the Super Bowl.
CNN and "The Hill" report the ad is titled "Inside these Lines" and is narrated by actor Forest Whitaker.
It will be shown during NBC's "Sunday Night Football" telecast of the Oakland Raiders-Washington Redskins game.
The NFL told CNN the piece is meant to demonstrate the power that football uses to bring people together.
A spokesman for the league said the NFL thinks this is the single best response to demonstrate what they are about.
President Trump took to attacking the league for allowing players to kneel during the national anthem.
