Over a dozen Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars players knelt during the U.S. national anthem before Sunday's game at Wembley Stadium.

Meanwhile, Jaguars owner Shad Khan linked arms in between black players Marcedes Lewis and Telvin Smith. 

Per ESPN, It is believed to be a protest to President Donald Trump's recent comments on protests during the anthem.

The Ravens, who have never had players protest previously, had 10 players take a knee: linebackers Terrell SuggsC.J. MosleyZa'Darius SmithTim Williams and Tyus Bowser, wide receiver Mike Wallace, defensive lineman Carl Davis, safety Tony Jefferson, and defensive backs Anthony Levine and Lardarius Webb.

Many of the Jaguars held hands along the sideline, and about 10 took a knee including cornerbacks Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye, defensive ends Calais Campbell and Yannick Ngakoue, defensive tackle Malik Jackson, safety Tashaun Gipson, and running back Leonard Fournette.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh and Jaguars coach Doug Marrone and owner Shad Kahn stood with the players during the anthem.

"We recognize our players' influence," Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti said via statement. "We respect their demonstration and support them 100 percent. All voices need to be heard. That's democracy in its highest form."
