Packers QB Aaron Rodgers Calls For Audience Participation During Tonight's National Anthem

Sep 28, 2017

Another week in the NFL begins tonight with the Chicago Bears traveling to Green Bay to take on the Packers.  It'll be the first game since last weekend's protests during the national anthem -- after President Trump called on NFL owners to fire players who take a knee during the event.  

Packer players, coaches and staff say the plan to lock arms during the anthem.  Quarterback Aaron Rodgers is asking fans to do the same -- in the stands.  He says it would be a moment of unity.  Most of the Packers locked arms during the anthem before Sunday's game against Cincinnati, while three players sat on a bench.

Green Bay police say they'll have more officers on the field than usual before the game, in case anyone in the crowd throws an object, or tries to get onto the field.
