The Houston Texans Left The Field For The National Anthem, The Chiefs Locked Arms

Today was the opening of the NFL season between the Houston Texans and Kansas City Chiefs. Before the national anthem began the Houston Texans lefted the field and the Kansas City Chiefs locked arms on the goal line.

The Houston Texans stayed inside during the “Lift Ev’vry Voice and Sing” which is commonly referred to as the Black National Anthem. Some players and staff members on the Kansas City took a knee while others did not.

It’s going to be interesting to see if this will or will not have any affect on the overall ratings of the NFL. In the NBA which has been kneeling during the National Anthem we have seen a big affect on the overall ratings so it’ll be interesting to see if this will have a similar affect if this becomes widespread in the NFL.
