The Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars set the tone for Week 3 on Sunday morning.
In what is sure to be a week full of protests across the NFL following Donald Trump’s divisive comments over the weekend regarding protesters and suggesting they should be stripped of their First Amendment rights, it is believed that league wide mass protests could take place.
That was the case bright and early prior to kickoff between the Ravens and Jaguars in London.
Both teams held their own protests, with players interlocking arms and others choosing to kneel in groups in a showing of solidarity.
Ravens head coach John Harbaugh was standing arm in arm with his players, as was Jaguars owner Shad Khan.

That is a powerful statement to make right out of the gate on Sunday. And you can expect many more to follow.
The Jaguars and Ravens are currently entering the second quarter at Wembley Stadium.
