Jaguars players locked arms during the National Anthem prior to the start of the team's third regular season Sunday game against the Baltimore Ravens. We respect their demonstration and support them 100 per cent.

The silent protest comes on the heels of President Donald Trump's remarks on Friday night at a rally in Alabama, his rescinding of an invitation to the Golden State Warriors to visit the White House and a pair of tweets written early on Sunday morning. "That's democracy in its highest form". Kaepernick became a free agent and has not been signed by a new team for this season. And viewers around the world were able to watch it in detail, via Verizon and the NFL's livestream of the game.

Trump called for players to be fired and encouraged fans to walk out of stadiums if players protested.

Khan joined his players on the field before their game against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, locking arms with two players as other members of the Jaguars and Ravens knelt during the playing of the national anthem.

"I'm not sure much changed, it's all about the mindset and we had the mindset to come and get it done today." said Ramsey.

"I wish I could stand up here as a coach and go, "I knew this was going to happen" said Doug Marrone after the game, "but I will say our players did a good job of being focused".

One Twitter user, who claims to be a veteran, said his service was so "football players could take a knee during the anthem to protest injustice".

"What you just saw was a variety of responses with the theme of unity", an National Football League front office source told CNN. He held his ball cap over his heart during the anthem.

"It was a privilege to stand on the sidelines with the Jacksonville Jaguars today for the playing of the US national anthem at Wembley Stadium", Khan said in a statement.

The Ravens did not get on the board until the final four minutes of the contest, by which point starting QB Joe Flacco had been replaced by back-up Ryan Mallett on a nightmare day. "Our commitment to the military and our community is resolute and the absence of our team for the national anthem shouldn't be misconstrued as unpatriotic", the Titans said in a statement. "Our players have the freedom to express themselves in a respectful and thoughtful manner and we all agreed that our sole message is to provide and to promote an environment that is focused on love and equality".
