Silent Protests During National Anthem At NFL Sites

NFL players are taking their silent protests during the national anthem across the U.S. and in England today.  

The displays came after President Trump's call for fans to boycott NFL games and for professional athletes to be suspended or fired for not standing for the national anthem. 

As the day's first round of games began, the Pittsburgh Steelers remained in the locker room for the anthem before taking the field at Chicago to face the Bears.  

 
 

Players from the Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New Orleans Saints and others took knees during the anthem.  Other players held hands, stood with elbows locked and knelt. 

 
 
 
 
 

In London's Wembley Stadium early today, the Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars staged silent protests by taking knees and locking arms during the national anthem before their game.  Some players, such as Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, were seen standing with their hands over their hearts.
