Jacksonville Jaguars beat Baltimore Ravens 44-7 at Wembley

Played in London, it was the first NFL game to take place since President Donald Trump began speaking out and tweeting against players who kneel during the national anthem.

The protest came hours after Trump against tweeted that National Football League owners should "fire or suspend" players that "disrespect" the "flag & country".

Patriots owner Robert Kraft, who also gave $1 million to Trump's inaugural and presented him with a Super Bowl LI ring, said in a statement Sunday that he was "deeply disappointed by the tone" of Trump's comments.

On Sunday in London, Lewis took a knee along with multiple Ravens players during the national anthem.

While players from the Jaguars and Ravens opted for taking a knee, standing with interlocking arms, or placing a hand on the shoulder of kneeling players, plenty of Twitter users were quick to hop in Lewis' mentions for joining in what is shaping up to be #TakeAKnee weekend in the NFL.

The President's comments were met with widespread backlash from sports stars and teams from across the US. "That's why it's important for us, and personally for me, to show the world that even if we may differ at times, we can and should be united in the effort to become better as people and a nation".

As coach Mike Tomlin promised, the Steelers didn't take the field for the national anthem. "Fire or suspend!" he tweeted early Sunday.

The league is likely to see similar signs of unity and protest on Sunday as other games get set to kickoff.

WSB-TVs Justin Wilfon reported that at least one officer sustained a head injury and was loaded into the back of an ambulance. Officers arrived at the scene, and found an individual with what they described as a knife.

The Bears locked arms, meanwhile.

If the Jaguars are going to show no mercy in blowout wins, let's hope they jump out to a 37-0 lead in every game they play for the rest of the season.

Trump's claims have been widely criticized, with National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell saying in a statement Saturday that "divisive comments like these demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect". We respect their demonstration and support them 100 percent. Steve Bisciotti has said it himself, 'How can you crucify Ray Lewis when Ray Lewis is the one calling for Colin Kaepernick?'.

"There is no better example than the awesome response from our clubs and players to the bad natural disasters we've experienced over the last month", he said.

By playing to his ever-shrinking base, Trump's big move backfired and only made the protests stronger.

The only drama in the fourth quarter revolved around the Ravens avoiding a shutout, which they did with 3:24 left, long after Joe Flacco and the other offensive starters and the Jaguars' defensive starters had left the game.

I know you remember how he waltzed into Trump Tower to make friends with the half-wit Hitler immediately after Trump took office.

The defense we saw in week 1 at Houston was back and perhaps even better.
