Several went down on one knee in defiance of US President Donald Trump's suggestion that those who protest during the anthem should be fired.

Khan later issued a statement through the Jaguars' social media feed in which he called Trump's remarks "divisive and contentious".

USA Today reports Khan donated $1 million to Trump's presidential campaign.

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick inspired a wave of protest last season when he routinely knelt during the Star Spangled Banner in protest of racial injustices and police brutality.

Retired NFL safety Burgess Owens has a message for all the players protesting by taking a knee during the national anthem: "Stand up as men".

Protests of this nature will likely continue throughout the day. Even though the Ravens entered the game as one of the NFL's 10 undefeated teams, this Baltimore squad was far from ideal, giving up up big plays on defense and sputtering on offense.

The NFL Players' Association said the president had crossed a line by effectively telling players to just "shut up and play".

The show of support came on the heels of Donald Trump's attack of National Football League owners and players who have in the past or presently taken a knee in protest of police brutality against black and brown men and women. All voices need to be heard. "He's going to say, 'That guy that disrespects our flag, he's fired.' And that owner, they don't know it [but] they'll be the most popular person in this country".

Let me tell you about our responsibility is, and every generation has done this throughout the history of our country, is to give our kids more hope than we had.

The Pittsburgh Steelers remained in the locker room as the national anthem played before their game with the Chicago Bears. He also rescinded a White House invitation to Stephen Curry, after Curry had already announced he would not be visiting the president's residence.

His remarks, which National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell labelled as "divisive" have drawn widespread criticism, with a number of National Football League teams releasing statements speaking out against the president and in support of their players.

In a statement released by the team during the first quarter of the game, Bisciotti said, "We recognize our players' influence".

"My decision has been coming for a long time", Maxwell, the son of a U.S. Army veteran, said after the game to ESPN.
