Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch sits during national anthem

Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch sits during national anthem

Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio didn't know he was going to do that.

Although he rarely talks to the news media, Lynch has voiced support for quarterback Colin Kaepernick's decision to kneel during the anthem last season to protest what he saw as a pattern of police mistreatment of minorities.

Whenever Lynch addresses this with the media, we will gain more insights into his thought process.

The plan going into Saturday's preseason game against the Oakland Raiders was to play the starters roughly 15 plays and no more than one quarter.

Palmer was disappointed he didn't get to play more. I missed a couple. "I've got to wait until next week". Raiders linebackers Bruce Irvin and Malcolm Smith joined in early a year ago, by standing through the anthem with a raised fist before a game at Tennessee. Arians would call the game in Atlanta, and Goodwin - who called the Hall of Fame game - would close out the preseason calling the game in Denver.

But one good thing is that most of the gold from the war has been shipped to King's Landing and can be returned to the Iron Bank . The duo certainly have a lot to talk about, specially since viewers have yet to see Jon's reaction on Daenerys' decision.

Del Rio told reporters he did not believe Lynch sitting would be a distraction.

Del Rio added that the protest was a "non-issue" for him as a coach. They converted on eight of 10 third downs, and the defense limited the Raiders to 121 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. Both times Stanton calmly moved around the pocket despite pressure - the first allowing him to find wide receiver Brittan Golden coming across the field for a 26-yard gain, the second as he rolled left, buying time for tight end Troy Niklas to work back in the end zone for a 7-yard score.

OFFENSE RESTS: The only members of Oakland's first-team offense to play were tackles Marshall Newhouse and Vadal Alexander.
