The Ravens faced a bit more scrutiny for their national anthem protest on Sunday in Baltimore.
Last week, some Ravens took a knee and locked arms with while the anthem was played in London before a game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. There were similar demonstrations at every NFL game last week in response to President Trump's comments about the league.
Today, the team decided to go the Dallas Cowboys route a la "Monday Night Football."
It took a trio of relative unknowns to wake up the Seattle Seahawks.
J.D. McKissic took the second carry of his career 30 yards for a touchdown and Bobby Wagner scooped up Marcus Smith's forced fumble and rumbled 21 yards for a score in a 13-second span late in the third quarter, and the Seahawks beat the Indianapolis Colts 46-18 on Sunday night.
Justin Coleman added a 28-yard interception return for a touchdown in the first half, and Seattle overcame a sleepy first 30 minutes from its offense to finally put away the Colts.
Coming to Los Angeles would be bittersweet, the Chargers said -- a compound word that’s turned out to be only half applicable.
For the fans in San Diego, there’s been more bitterness than in a case of skunked beer. Banners fly over StubHub Center, and ex-fans delight at the miniscule attendance numbers and the opposing-fan takeovers.
Luckily for the team, the NFL gave it a chance to erase some of that with a sweet first month – a prime-time game during Week 1 followed by three straight at its new, albeit, temporary home, in Carson at StubHub Center.
Officials originally waved off Hunter Henry’s one-handed grab in the end zone, but Anthony Lynn challenged the call, with replay showing that the Chargers’ tight end got both feet in for his first score of the year. With 6:44 left in the game, the Chargers trail 26-24.
Austin Ekeler, an undrafted running back out of tiny Western State, broke through the line for a 35-yard touchdown, the first of his career and the longest run for the team on the season. The Chargers now trail 19-17 early in the fourth quarter.
The Philadelphia Eagles added to their lead as kicker Jake Elliott continues his big day with a 47-yard field goal. Elliott’s connected on four kicks as Philadelphia leads 19-10 late in the third quarter.
