CANTON Jordan Scarlett Jersey , Ohio (AP)There were no demonstrations by any players during the singing of the national anthemAll players and coaches for the Chicago Bears and Baltimore Ravens stood as the NFL’s preseason began.The NFL modified its national anthem protocol in May, prohibiting any sort of demonstrations for 2018, but allowing players to remain in the locker room during ”The Star-Spangled Banner” if they chose to. Individual teams would be responsible for disciplining any demonstrators.The players’ union filed a grievance about the policy change, and late last month, the new policy was put on hold while the NFL and NFLPA work on a resolution.Those demonstrations were begun by then-49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in 2016 when he kneeled during the anthem to protest racial inequality and social injustice. The kneeling and other displays of protest spread leaguewide, particularly when President Trump suggested team owners fire players who didn’t stand for the anthem.On Thursday night, everyone on the sideline stood.”We as a group talked about it and decided that was what we were doing,” new Bears coach Matt Nagy said. ”It’s for unity and togetherness. The guys are really excited to come up with one deal as a team. They were all out there; from what we talked about, it happened.”— EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Jamal Adams gathered the New York Jets‘ defensive players before their game against the Denver Broncos and spoke from the heart.They were about to take the field without Kacy Rodgers fensive end Leonard Williams said. “He said if you didn’t have enough to play for, play for that man. I think he’s proud right now.”Bowles and the Jets have not detailed the nature of the 49-year-old Rodgers’ illness. It also is unclear when he might be able to return to the team.In the meantime, Bowles called the defensive plays in New York’s 34-16 victory over the Denver Broncos on Sunday.“Obviously, to have that guy missing, there’s a big hole on the defensive side of the football,” Bowles said. “He’s in the room every day working with those guys. I’m sure they played a lot for them, and they played for him as well.”The defense — which also met as a unit Friday to be sure all the players were on the same page — was solid for most of the game, keeping Case Keenum and the Broncos’ offense off balance. Williams had two sacks ed zone.To a man, the players on defense said they drew added inspiration from Rodgers, and hoping he was happy with their performance.“Life is first,” Maye said. “Coach Kacy is dealing with that issue, so we all just stepped up for him and did the best that we can for him because we know that he would love to be here.”Cornerback Morris Claiborne said he texted Rodgers on Saturday night and again before the game.“It was just to let him know I was thinking about him,” Claiborne said. “It felt different without having him around that the time. We’re praying for him.”Here are some other things to know from the Broncos-Jets game:AS THE CROW FLIESIsaiah Crowell ran for a Jets franchise-record 219 yards, including a 77-yard touchdown, on 15 carries.He broke the team record of 210 yards rushing set by Thomas Jones in 2009 against Buffalo. His 14.6 yards per carry also set an NFL record for a player with at least 15 attempts, according to Elias Sports Bureau.“It means a lot to me,” Crowell said. “I’ve got to give all the credit to my O-line. I can’t really take the cr from Bowles — and the running back promised it would never happen again.LEAKY DEFENSEThe Broncos were frustrated with themselves after the game, particularly with allowing so many big plays.In addition to Crowell’s long run, Robby Anderson also caught a 76-yard TD pass from Sam Darnold. It was the first time the Jets have had multiple TDs on offense of 75 yards or more in the same game since Sept Courtland Sutton.It was the longest interception return in Jets history — and the longest non-touchdown on an INT, according to Elias Sports Bureau. Of course, Maye took some razzing from his teammates, but he just returned last week from ankle and foot ailments that kept him sidelined for most of the summer and the first three games.“Yeah, they’ve been getting on me,” Maye said. “I just have to get in shape and I have to finish.”ON THE CASEKeenum finished with two touchdown passes — to Sutton and Demaryius Thomas — his first two since the Broncos’ season-opening win against Seattle.He was 35 of 51 for 377 yards, setting single-game career highs in comple ree touchdowns — two to Anderson and one to Terrelle Pryor — as the Jets’ offense had one of its most balanced and productive days ever.“It’s amazing to see the way our runners ran,” Darnold said. “Our offensive line played outstanding today and I can’t say enough about their efforts.”
