Three Dolphins Kneel For Anthem, Stand For God Save The Queen

Three Dolphins Kneel For Anthem, Stand For God Save The Queen

Last week, Ajayi was one of 10 Miami Dolphins players to wear an #IMWITHKAP T-shirt in warm ups and one of seven to stand during the playing of the Star-Spangled Banner before defeat by the New York Jets. Drake needs more of an opportunity to make plays from scrimmage, and getting him involved on third down might be a way for the Dolphins to see what he has to offer.

One interesting subplot for the Saints, however, was that Adrian Peterson was given just four carries on the day for four yards.

"Nobody cares", guard Jermon Bushrod said. If you lose, that's all anybody cares about.

He did play, in a 24-18 win over the Bucs. Their only victory being 31-13 against the Carolina Panthers.

Head coach Adam Gase said most of his players managed to get some sleep on the flight over, and should be fine for the game as long as they eat right and stay hydrated during the weekend. Most #NFL analysts and fans have been commenting about how they would like a much more competitive Week 4 contest. As their London-born running back Jay Ajayi, who carried the ball for 46 yards from 12 attempts, admitted afterwards: "We didn't put any points on the board so it is extremely frustrating". He's the NFL's only skill player from Britain.

"Appropriate that we're playing on the pitch of Tottenham that we have a scoreless game", he said after an earlier missed field goal attempt. "So that has been a blessing".

The game kicks off at 9:30 a.m. on Fox Sports. And that touchdown didn't come Sunday as the Dolphins were shut out, 20-0 against New Orleans.

The Dolphins have had a great deal of adversity to overcome in the young season, but they must find a way to overcome the Saints and get a win to reinvigorate their team.

"I think it's a good combination of showing unity and also paying tribute to the actual reason why everybody's taking a knee".

FAST FACTS: QB Drew Brees has 867 pass yards (289 per game), 6 TDs and no interceptions for a 109.7 rating in past three games.

Marshon Lattimore, the top cornerback selected in the first round of last spring's draft, returned to practice this week from a concussion, which should only help the defense.

Olin Kreutz and Jay Cutler played together as members of the Chicago Bears for two years.

The Dolphins are averaging 8.3 points per game through their first three games.

New Orleans Saints players, including defensive end Cameron Jordan, explained how they made a decision to as a team to approach the national anthem prior to their Week 3 game against the Panthers.

Drew Brees went 29-of-41 passing for 268 yards, and two touchdowns.
