Jared Goff looks sharp in Los Angeles Rams' win over Oakland Raiders

Sean Smith

Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr denied that his actions during the national anthem on Saturday, in which he put his hand on defensive end Khalil Mack's shoulder, was any type of protest.

"We wanted to show them that it's OK for a white kid and a black kid that come from two different neighborhoods [to] grow up and love one another and be best friends", Carr said (via ESPN), "and that's what me and Khalil are". All be loving to each other. White, black, whatever you are.

"My experience with Jared to this point is Jared is nothing but a mentally tough guy who has got resilience and the ability to respond when things don't work out", McVay said. "Yeah, just kinda just showing a little unity, using our platform to show unity".

Mack said the anthem issue is discussed throughout the league. It's one of the things I feel passionately about, but I just don't like the attention, the attention that comes with it.

"Well, I think we'll let him battle, legally, what issues he has", Del Rio said.

Lynch declined to talk about his decision to take a knee during the national anthem.

Millions of Americans ready to see sun go dark in coast-to-coast eclipse
Linda Marks, the vice president of the Michiana Astronomical Society, said society members will be spread out from coast to coast. What makes Monday's eclipse so special is that it will cut diagonally across the entire United States.

The big concern for the Raiders was a first-team defense that was jeered by the home fans - and justifiably so - as Goff led the Rams 85 yards in eight plays and threw a 23-yard touchdown pass to an nearly comically open Cooper Kupp. "I don't really have anything to add to it".

Against Arizona though, the Oakland defense - a defense that was mostly made up of reserves - and players on the roster bubble - surrendered just two "big plays".

The question is how far McKenzie is willing to go to squeeze highly-regarded veteran player who clearly outperformed his contract.

"This is my second game here", Goff said.

- Linebacker Nicholas Morrow, a third-round pick out of Division III Greenville, almost had a game-clinching interception with a break on the ball, had a tackle for loss and also a special teams tackle. Amari Cooper caught three of four targets for 46 yards, with 31 of those coming on a jump ball into double coverage on a 3rd-and-10.

Chris Long took that to heart and, during the playing of the anthem before the Philadelphia Eagles' preseason game Thursday night, he placed his hand on Malcolm Jenkins' back as Jenkins raised his fist.
