Wide receivers Stedman Bailey, Chris Givens, Tavon Austin, Kenny Britt, and tight end Jared Cook entered the field holding their hands up. 

On Thursday, Pro Football Talk reported that there was a "remote possibility" that Sunday's game was going to be moved to Indianapolis, Ind because of the ongoing tension and the protesters.
