Jerry Jones kneels with Cowboys players prior to anthem, later stands
A lot of questions were asked prior to the start of Monday Night Football about how the Dallas Cowboys would handle the national anthem.
Team owner Jerry Jones made it clear that he did not like protests during the anthem, and there was some thought that Cowboys players were discouraged from doing so.
Well the questions were finally answered, and it seemed the Cowboys came to a compromise.
The Cowboys kneeled prior to the anthem as a statement of equality and unity.
