Over 250 players took a knee during the anthem last week, some with coaches and owners. Two teams including the Tennessee Titans and Seattle Seahawks have decided not to leave the locker room during the anthem. Fox said, “As we have in previous broadcasts of NFL games from London, Fox will show the National Anthem as well as God Save the Queen live. As is standard procedure, regionalized coverage of NFL game airing on FOX this Sunday will not show the National Anthem live; however, our cameras are always rolling and we will document the response of players and coaches on the field.”
