All NFL Players Stood For The National Anthem This Weekend To Make Powerful Point

By Chet Dawson

In honor of Veterans Day on Saturday, the NFL Players Association voted unanimously to hold a moment of silence during Sunday's games.

As a result, the long-standing protest against racial inequality and police brutality was largely suspended over the Veterans Day weekend, with only three players kneeling before games.

Even Titans receiver Rishard Matthews, who previously had participated in the protests, walked on field holding hands with soldiers and stood for the anthem.
