As the Dallas Cowboys were set to play against the Philadelphia Eagles at AT&T Stadium, there was something happening outside of the venue. A group of around 300 people gathered to protest during the national anthem and show support for former San Francisco 49ers backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

Mostly dressed in black, the group positioned themselves right outside of AT&T Stadium and waited for the national anthem to play.

Once the song was being performed, the group of protesters took a knee in solidarity with Kaepernick and the other NFL players who have protested the anthem:

Inside the stadium, however, none of the Dallas Cowboys or Philadelphia Eagles protested the anthem:

The protest was also aimed at Cowboys owner Jerry Jones's comment he previously made about protesting football players.

“What Jerry Jones tried to do with his statement was trying to get back to plantation politics and trying to tell these players that he was owner over them and they were property of the Dallas Cowboys,” Dominique Alexander told Fox 4 in Dallas.
