Numerous players on both teams knelt during the "Star-Spangled Banner," and those who didn't kneel opted to stand with their arms locked.
Jaguars owner Shahid Khan was among those linking arms, as was Ravens head coach John Harbaugh. Terrell Suggs, Leonard Fournette, and former Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis were among those that took a knee.
Khan released a comment about the anthem display once the game got underway.
The mass protest comes in the wake of shocking comments from President Donald Trump, who called for any player that demonstrates during the anthem to be "fired" by NFL owners, while also referring to protesting players as a "son of a bitch."
