Marshawn Lynch stood during the national anthem on Sunday for the first time all year. Only it wasn’t the U.S. national anthem.
The Oakland Raiders running back has taken a seat for “The Star-Spangled Banner” ever since coming out of retirement this season and has not given a reason why. He continued the practice this week before the Raiders’ game against the New England Patriots in Mexico City.
Then the Mexican national anthem played — and Lynch rose to his feet.
