This happened yesterday when the New England Patriots took on the Raiders in Mexico City.

This is nothing new, however, as Lynch has been sitting for the American national anthem for most of the season. It was just his decision to stand for the Mexican National Anthem that really turned some heads.

President Donald Trump also joined the conversation following Sundays game.

While he has been sitting for the American national anthem for most of the season, he has not been very vocal about his motivation to do so.

It is very likely that Lynch is sitting in a show of solidarity with other players in the NFL who have done the same thing to support Colin Kaepernick.

Yesterday made it clear that Lynch is protesting what is going on in the United States.
