As the NFL’s Week Three games got underway on Sunday, only three players mounted any form of protest during the playing of the national anthem.
With 14 games scheduled for Sunday and 10 kicking off around the 1 PM Eastern time slot, all the players for nine of the early games stood for the anthem.
As they have done in every game this season — and most games last season — Dolphins wide receivers Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson took a knee during the song.
In addition, defensive end Robert Quinn raised a fist in the air in protest as he stood on the sidelines.
The list included Dolphins players Kenny Stills, Albert Wilson, and Robert Quinn, the Eagles’ Michael Bennett, Marshawn Lynch of the Raiders, Demaryius Thomas and Brandon Marshall of the Broncos, and Seahawks players Quinton Jefferson and Duane Brown.
