Some NFL players kneel Sunday during national anthem

But, a poll conducted by Reuters previous year suggests those who share his sentiments are clearly divided by race. Arizona had to piece things together on the left side of its offensive line with injuries to left tackle D.J. Humphries and guards Mike Iupati and Alex Boone.

Three Miami Dolphins players, Kenny Stills, Julius Thomas and Michael Thomas, took a knee during the anthem before they faced off against the New Orleans Saints in London's Wembley Stadium. They're a team that makes really dumb, costly mistakes. A 19-yard strike from Palmer to Fitzgerald with 32 seconds remaining in the game would send the 49ers packing with another loss in their back pocket.

As if giving up over 100 yards to a single receiver wasn't bad enough, Robinson also dropped a pair of interceptions - one early in the first quarter that was subsequently picked off by 49ers linebacker Ray-Ray Armstrong and another in the final moments of overtime that fell incomplete after almost falling to Brown.

Unfortunately, this means they're also a team that just isn't fun to watch. We're a team. We don't hate each other because of our different beliefs and I think that's something that the country needs to understand as well.

After the game, Newton said he made the gesture "to show black pride because I am an African-American". Maybe, but it's accurate. A lot of situations that is going on right now in our country is trying to cause division. They had a crappy game last week, but in general, I'm pretty excited about what I'm seeing. Quarterback Carson Palmer has been erratic at times this season, but offensive line struggled and he was under constant duress against the Cowboys.

Notable players who recorded a sack included rookie defensive end Solomon Thomas, who recorded his first in the National Football League, and Elvis Dumervil, who recorded both his 100th and 101st. "And at first, I thought that was a small sacrifice to pay to get the word out, to raise that awareness". Gould has not missed a field goal since 2015 and became the replacement for Dawson in the off-season.

On a pass to John Brown down the right sideline, 49ers cornerback Rashard Robinson tipped the ball away, but Brown still managed to haul it in. Football is so much fun! Whichever team ends with better conversion percentage in this game, could easily find themselves as the victor.

San Diego police and the county sheriff's department have helped set up a "free speech zone" nearby for people to demonstrate. Recently, a leaked DHS report estimated that building 1,250 miles of fencing and wall could cost $21.6 billion.

The 49ers (0-3) continued their bad form as they lost a close 41-39 game to the Rams last week.

Arians then shared explanation he received as to why Ellington's catch was overturned to an incomplete pass. With owners like Ford encouraging their players to stand, the number of players protesting during the anthem took a considerable hit in Week 4.

The San Francisco 49ers know moral victories won't get a team very far in the NFL.

In addition, three players who sustained concussions against the Rams are active. Their teammates stood behind them, with one hand over their hearts and the other on the shoulders of the kneeling players.

"For more than a year, members of our team have protested the oppression and social injustices still present in our society", 49ers coaches players ownership and staff said in a statement.

So yeah, we suck on the field, but we're pretty awesome on the sidelines and in 2017 that actually feels a lot more important.

Before the game between the Indianapolis Colts and Seattle Seahawks, the Colts players released a statement saying the players who had previously knelt during the anthem "did not intend to disrespect our flag, our National Anthem or those who serve our country".
