Entire Cowboys Team Kneels Briefly Before National Anthem

The players eventually made a decision to all kneel at once in the middle of the field before Jordin Sparks sang the anthem. Defensive tackle Frostee Rucker and tight end Ifeanyi Momah kept their helmets on. Fitzgerald locked arms with coach Bruce Arians on the other side.

That task has not been an easy one for the Dallas Cowboys The Cowboys have lost the last four times out against the Cardinals, and even worse, they've lost five of the last six when they've played in Arizona.

All over the NFL we have seen a number of different protests and demonstrations from players, coaches and executives during the national anthem prior to games in Week 3.

Until the moments before the kickoff, sources were not sure what the players would do.

How can I watch the Arizona Cardinals vs Dallas Cowboys live on TV?

Friday, Trump used a support speech as a vehicle to attack the NFL and many of its players over protests taking place during playing of the national anthem.

All eyes were on America's team as they came to the sidelines just before kickoff at the University of Phoenix Stadium on Monday night.

A little less than an hour before kickoff, Jerry Jones said he respected the players "individually and collectively", but he did not want to get into the political element of the debate. It is about respect for our Country, Flag and National Anthem. As of an hour before kickoff he said he hadn't but he also indicated it could still happen.

A viral post from 2016 is making its rounds on social media again after President Donald Trump shared his thoughts on players who kneel during the Star Spangled Banner.

"We have to do something", another said.
