Lynch has been part of the wave of players protesting racial injustice this fall, and on Sunday he again sat during the pregame playing of the Star-Spangled Banner. The anthems for both countries were played before the game. Patriots reporter Ben Volin of the Boston Globe shared photos that show Lynch sitting for the U.S. anthem and then standing for Mexico's.
Some on Twitter disputed Volin's account and said that Lynch rose for Mexico's because he was getting his chest pads worked on by a trainer.
Lynch has struggled a bit this season after returning from a brief retirement, making his performance early against the Patriots is a promising sign.
Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick pioneered the protests previous year when he took a knee during the playing of the national anthem over what he said was social and racial injustice. But to stand for Mexico's anthem and not ours is a huge slap in the face of the country. That's where you lose me completely.
