In response to a string of Tweets by President Donald Trump, Washington Redskins and Oakland Raiders players, coaches, and staff knelt, locked arms in protest. Solidarity has been a theme around the NFL in Week 3. The offensive line for the Raiders sat on the bench with arms locked.

Trump’s Attack on Football
President Trump Friday attacked pro football players who don’t stand during the national anthem – and urged team owners to remove those silent protesters from the field at a campaign rally in Huntsville on Friday, according to the NY Post.

He continued, saying that he wishes NFL suits would take a harder stance against players who take a knee during the national anthem.

Trump said, “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners when someone disrespects our flag to say, `Get that son of a bitch off the field right now! Out. He’s fired! He’s fired!”
