Donald Trump Says 'Winner' Jerry Jones Will Get Dallas Cowboys to Stand

Cowboys kneel before national anthem against Arizona Trump tweets that the Cowboys will keep standing for the anthem after he spoke to the owner

The Dallas players all kneeled alongside Jones and his family near the 50-yard line before a giant American flag was unfurled, drawing some boos from the Cardinals fans.

The Cowboys went on to beat the Cardinals 28-17.

But quarterback Dak Prescott ended up with an inspiring head-over-heels flip at the goal line on a 10-yard scoring run and two touchdown passes.

Jones said earlier this week he felt the message of unity, the message of equality, was getting pushed aside by the controversy...and by the action of some, even created the controversy. "Last week we got hit in the mouth pretty good". It was also a rebound performance for Elliott who had a career low eight yards against the Broncos. The entire Pittsburgh team was in the stadium tunnel as the anthem played.

The Cowboys (2-1) are tied for the division lead despite the troubling outing in Denver - the worst game together for Prescott, last year's NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, and Elliott. "I ask! Ask ... not tell. I've always hated the Dallas Cowboys, and will continue to do so to this day", McCain said, grinning. The fact that they did it at all is. Dallas gained just 57 total yards in the first half. But taking a knee beforehand drew some booing from spectators. As a further indication of just how divisive the issue has become, others cheered loudly when a giant USA flag was unfurled and covered nearly the entire pitch.

Other teams, such as the Pittsburgh Steelers, stayed off the field until the anthem was finished.

Trump has been bashing the league since a Friday campaign rally in Alabama, when he called on NFL owners to fire any players who protest during the national anthem.

Trump's verbal assault may appeal to his conservative base as the Republican president grapples with critical issues including North Korea's nuclear threats, a humanitarian crisis in hurricane-struck Puerto Rico, an investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and the health care struggle in Congress.

Around 9 a.m. ET, Trump tweeted: "The NFL has all sorts of rules and regulations". Given how rampant the team-wide protests were in Week 3, the viewing public should expect more instances of these acts of dissent in the weeks to come, and Jones believes that this certainly is the case.

Donald Trump said Wednesday that at least one NFL owner has assured him that his team will stand for the National Anthem before its NFL games.

Days later, that prompted a wave of protests and demonstrations by NFL teams during the national anthem. "Big progress being made - we all love our country".

On Tuesday morning, Trump continued his attacks against the league, tweeting that NFL ratings "are way down except before game starts, when people tune in to see whether or not our country will be disrespected".

Television networks reported a mixed impact on viewership for Sunday's games.
