Many of the Ravens players as well as players on the Jaguars kneeled during the United States anthem, but stood for “God Save The Queen,” the British national anthem. Most of those who didn’t kneel locked arms in solidarity, following comments by President Donald Trump urging fans to walk out of games if they saw players kneel during the anthem.

“If NFL fans refuse to go to games until players stop disrespecting our Flag & Country, you will see change take place fast. Fire or suspend!” Trump tweeted on Sunday.
