Miami Dolphins wide receivers Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson today became the first players this season to protest during the national anthem by taking a knee, before the team’s season opening game against the Tennessee Titans. Earlier today President Trump tweeted again about the kneeling controversy and ESPN reported the NFL will not be instituting a new policy regarding anthem protests this season. Stills and Wilson knelt, and defensive end Robert Quinn raised a fist, during the National Anthem on Sunday, continuing the protest first undertaken by former quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Both receivers also kneeled during pre-season games,
My Brothers @kstills and @ithinkisee12 continue to show their unwavering strength by fighting for the oppressed! They have not backed down, even when attacked and intimidated. Their courage will move the world forward!“Love is at the root of our resistance!” pic.twitter.com/2kSsX4s7EU — Colin Kaepernick (@Kaepernick7) September 9, 2018
Week 6 of the NFL season closes out with a primetime match-up between two of the NFC’s most storied franchises. It’s the Green Bay Packers vs. the San Francisco 49ers live from Lambeau Field. The Packers, at 2-2-1, have struggled through the first third of the season, as all-world quarterback Aaron Rodgers has tried to play through a knee injury. Fortunately for them, no one has run away with the NFC Central. But the Packers would do well to get on a roll soon. A quarterback injury devastated the 49ers season, as Jimmy Garropalo went down in Week 2 with a torn ACL. The NFC West is already a pipe dream, with the undefeated Rams out to a superb start. But backup C.J. Beathard is hoping to stabilize the season for the Niners, and somehow keep them in the Wild Card hunt. Kickoff for is set for 8:15 p.

The NFL season is, remarkably, nearly one-third complete already. Week 5 concludes with an interesting NFC matchup which should light up the scoreboard. The Washington Redskins head south, Monday, for a primetime showdown with the New Orleans Saints. After a fortunate home win over the Browns in Week 2, the Saints seem to have found their mojo with a pair of road wins over the Falcons and the Giants. Now at 3-1 and with division rivals Tampa Bay and Atlanta struggling, Drew Brees and company are in position to battle Carolina for the NFC South crown. And thanks to the various stumbles of their NFC East rivals, the Resdkins, too, are in position to make a run at the NFC East title. They enter at 2-1 off of a bye week after a strong home win over Green Bay in Week 3. The Packers are clearly struggling. But if, on Continue reading "How to Watch NFL Monday Night Football — New Orleans Saints vs. Washington Redskins Live Stream Online"
Week 3 of the NFL season wraps up with an intriguing matchup between the slow-starting Pittsburgh Steelers and the early season toast of the NFL, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Steelers were lucky to escape Week 1 with a tie against Cleveland. They followed that up with a loss against a superb Kansas City squad in a shootout. Now, as they reportedly are looking for trade offers for star running back Le’Veon Bell, the Steelers look to avoid a disastrous 0-2-1 start. Conversely, the Bucs have been the darlings of the league through two weeks — led by journeyman quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. An opening week victory over the Saints was followed by a Week 2 win over defending champion Philadelphia. The Bucs have a tough task ahead of them Monday night. But another win would propel them to serious contention in what figures to be a tough NFC South.

Week 3 of the NFL season kicks off with a matchup of two teams who selected quarterbacks in the top three of the 2018 Draft — though only one will get the start on Thursday. It’s the New York Jets vs. the Cleveland Browns live in primetime from FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland. After routing the Detroit Lions to start the season, the Jets fell back to earth last week in losing to the rival Miami Dolphins. Jets star rookie signal caller Sam Darnold looked like a rookie — though he did throw for more than 300 yards. Optimism around the Jets is off the charts, for once. The fans, the coaches, and the front office all believe that the 21-year-old from USC is the man who will finally lead them to the promised land. The Browns, meanwhile, have come oh so close to finally getting in the win column, after Continue reading "How to Watch NFL Thursday Night Football — New York Jets vs. Cleveland Browns Live Stream Online"
Week 2 of the NFL season concludes Monday night in the Windy City — where the Chicago Bears will play host to the Seattle Seahawks at Soldier Field. Both teams dropped narrow decisions in Week 1. But for one, there is a case for optimism. The other, meanwhile, might be getting set to rebuild. The Bears lost a close one to Aaron Rodgers and the Packers last week. But it was clear that the team’s acquisition of all-world defensive end Khalil Mack is going to help the cause in a big way. With second-year quarterback Mitch Trubisky still developing, the Bears could be building something special. Contrast that with the Seattle Seahawks — for whom the window appears very much to be closing. After posting a high win total out of the NFC west in recent years, it seems as though this group’s best is behind it. That’s particularly true Continue reading "How to Watch NFL Monday Night Football — Chicago Bears vs. Seattle Seahawks Live Stream Online"
The last game of the opening week of the NFL season takes place late Monday night in the Bay Area — as the Oakland Raiders play host to the Los Angeles Rams in a fascinating matchup. For Oakland, the headlines leading up to the season opener have been all about one person who’s back with the team, and one who’s no longer there. Jon Gruden is making his coaching return for the silver and black Monday night — after a decade away from the league. But all-pro defensive end Khalil Mack is gone — having been dealt to Chicago in a blockbuster trade. Can the returning star coach help the Raiders overcome the loss of maybe the best defensive player in the NFL? On the other side, expectations are high for the Rams under second-year coach Sean McVay. The team appears to be loaded to make a serious run in Continue reading "How to Watch NFL Monday Night Football — Oakland Raiders vs. Los Angeles Rams Live Stream Online"
