The singer of the national anthem at Sunday’s Seattle Seahawks and Tennessee Titans game took a knee at the end of the song.
Megan Lindsey and her guitar player got down on one knee after performing the national anthem. The crowd cheered as she did so.
Players from both teams remained in their lockers rooms during the song in a joint protest.
Members of the Seahawks and Titans decided to sit out the national anthem in the wake of President Trump’s comments attacking NFL players who knelt during the anthem.
Both teams released statements announcing the decision and in support of their players.
The Pittsburgh Steelers also chose to remain in the team’s locker room during the national anthem. Only one player emerged during the song.
Players from multiple NFL teams have been kneeling during the national anthem after Trump called for players who do so to be fired. Others have locked arms in solidarity.
