Marshawn Lynch sits during national anthem

Seahawks’ Bennett plans to continue national anthem protest

Instead of standing for the song, he sat on a cooler while holding a banana.

Why Lynch chose to sit hasn't yet been revealed, but it comes almost one year after Colin Kaepernick began a protest of the oppression of people of color by sitting and kneeling during the playing of the national anthem during the 2016 season. He left the Raiders locker room before it was open to the media. Raiders coach Jack Del Rio said postgame that he was "surprised" by Lynch's decision.

"(Lynch) said, 'This is something I've done for 11 years. "You do your thing". "I said, 'So you understand how I feel. You do your thing.' So it's a non-issue for me". "I can't really comment on it too much".

The Cardinals led 17-3 at halftime with both the first and second offensive units scoring.

Carson Palmer spends enough time on the sideline these days.

When asked if he expected Mahrez to stay, he said: "Who knows?" "We all know Jamie Vardy's attributes". After being knocked down, Leicester got right back up with a second Vardy goal to take the 3-2 lead.

On the other hand, Eddie Howe's side had 60% of the possession in the first-half, but with no real threat on West Brom's back-line.

Palmer, at age 37 beginning his 15th National Football League season, directed Arizona on a 12-play, 70-yard touchdown drive to start the game. "We converted a bunch of third downs", Palmer said. I missed a couple. Raiders linebackers Bruce Irvin and Malcolm Smith joined in early previous year, by standing through the anthem with a raised fist before a game at Tennessee.

Del Rio added that the protest was a "non-issue" for him as a coach. "There were several guys that didn't play and that was one of them".

Cook finished the game 10 of 21 for 82 yards.

CARDINALS QBs: Drew Stanton, who appears to have a firm hold on the backup quarterback job despite the addition of Blaine Gabbert, had a strong first half in relief of Palmer.
