Starting with Jacksonville’s game against Baltimore in London, players, coaches and several owners protested across the league."

CBS NewsNFL players kneel, raise fists, lock arms during national anthem — "Many players sat, kneeled, raised fists or stayed inside locker rooms as the anthem played before each game, and as team owners encouraged players to express themselves. Others locked arms in a show of unity."
