Ray Lewis Hops Out Sunken Place, Takes Knee With Ravens In Solidarity

  • The 2000 Ravens defence allowed just 10.3 points per game in the regular season

"If NFL fans refuse to go to games until players stop disrespecting our Flag & Country, you will see change take place fast", Trump wrote on Sunday.

Khan wrote: "It was a privilege to stand on the sidelines with the Jacksonville Jaguars today for the playing of the USA national anthem at Wembley Stadium".

Eight Buffalo Bills players took a knee before the team's game against the Denver Broncos Sunday, according to sister station WKBW.

Supporters of former quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who refused to stand for the national anthem to protest police brutality against blacks, showed their solidarity with him.

Ahead of the morning game in London and 1 p.m. ET games, players from several teams, including the Jacksonville Jaguars, Baltimore Ravens, Cleveland Browns, the Denver Broncos and the Miami Dolphins, took knees during the anthem.

All Panthers players on the field stood for the anthem.

Similar protests are expected throughout the National Football League later on Sunday.

In a separate argument, Trump was also called a "bum" on Twitter by basketball superstar LeBron James.

A large number of NFL players took a knee or practiced other forms of protest during the playing of the National Anthem before Sunday's games, a clear response to President Trump's attacks on the NFL and its players over the weekend.

Players and teams in America's professional sports leagues have condemned Trump's comments in Alabama. Goodell said the president's comments showed an "unfortunate lack of respect for the National Football League".

"Out of love for our country and in honor of the sacrifices made on our behalf, we unite to oppose those that would deny our most basic freedoms", Seahawks players said in a statement.

For those who didn't protest, each player, coach and team staff member locked arms on the sidelines during the anthem.

The scale of the protest illustrates the size of the movement initiated by Kaepernick, one which has had an even bigger spotlight shone on it due to recent comments made by American president Donald Trump.

Tomlin had said before the game that Pittsburgh's players would remain in the locker room and that "we're not going to let divisive times or divisive individuals affect our agenda".

The NFL Players' Association said the president had crossed a line by effectively telling players to just "shut up and play". "Fire or suspend!" Trump wrote on Twitter.
