At the start of the NFL’s first game of the day today, the Baltimore Ravens versus the Jacksonville Jaguars in London, we got the first glimpse of what the rest of the day will offer from the NFL when it comes to the national anthem.
With President Donald Trump taking direct aim at NFL players kneeling down during the anthem as a way to protest racial inequities, it was expected that more players than normal would take a knee today. And that is just what happened this morning.
As you can see in the video above, quite a few players on both sidelines kneeled down as the Star Spangled Banner played. We can only assume we’ll see this across the league throughout the day.
