Only Two NFL Players Protest National Anthem In Shocking Turnaround Following Trump’s Criticism

Last week, Trump made the Dallas Cowboys stand for the anthem. Now the whole NFL is starting to follow suit.

ESPN made a big deal out of reversing an earlier decision to not broadcast The Star Spangled Banner before the Washington Redskins and Kansas City Chiefs kicked off on Monday Night Football. Citing the aftermath of Sunday night’s Las Vegas shooting, the network chose to air the anthem – and undoubtedly expected many NFL players to be kneeling in protest. Brownie points with the gun-control crowd, eh?

To the amazement of onlookers, only two players protested the anthem before MNF. Cameras captured a lonely Marcus Peters sitting out the anthem and looking forlorn (note tweet is wrong about the “only” player):

As President Trump would say, “PROGRESS!”

More from Breitbart:

Every Redskins player stood for the anthem, though several stood with arms interlocked.

Chiefs corner Marcus Peters has protested during the anthem at every game this year, and continued to do so on Monday night.

However, ESPN’s Darren Rovell reported that Chiefs linebacker Ukeme Eligwe also sat for the anthem. Though, the cameras only showed Marcus Peters.

Peters was recently asked by the head of the Kansas City Police Union, to end his protest and join a community outreach program.

The protests from Peters and Eligwe, bring the number of players who protested the anthem this week to 54. During Week 3, at least 180 NFL players protested the anthem in some form or fashion.
