One of the most anticipated subjects to the opening Sunday of the NFL season would be wether anyone would chose to protest the National Anthem. That Sunday just so happens to be 9/11.
The Kansas City Chiefs chose to stand during the playing of the anthem with arms locked in unity, but Marcus Peters made a gesture that looks awfully familiar.

Peters raised his right first into the air, a move similar to the black power salute made by Tommie Smith and John Carlos at the 1968 Mexico City Olympics.
Peters expressed support for Kaepernick earlier this weekend, saying he was “100 percent behind him.”
There is no word yet on if Peters was showing support for the causes described by Colin Kaepernick or if the gesture was a show of patriotism during the anthem.
