On the other sideline, several members of the Miami Dolphins knelt during the national anthem.
A week after almost 200 NFL players protested during the national anthem, fewer players on Sunday were not standing for the national anthem.
More than 200 players either knelt or used other means as expressions of unity last weekend. A week ago, coaches, support staff and even some owners joined team members in silent support by kneeling, linking arms or staying off the field during the anthem.

And on Thursday he continued the crusade, drawing a rebuke from the NFL after he said football team owners are afraid of their players.
"I do really believe his heart's in the right place", House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said on CBS' "Face the Nation". "I think they made it clear they support our players, but also support our country, the national anthem, the flag-all of the things some have suggested we don't".
