Only 11 NFL players did not stand during the national anthem during the first set of games Sunday.

That is a stark contrast from the 180 who kneeled last week, according to ESPN’s Darren Rovell.

He tweeted Sunday afternoon, “Last week, about 180 NFL players didn’t stand for the National Anthem. This week? 11.”

There has been massive public outrage directed at NFL players who refuse to stand during the national anthem, and President Donald Trump has been hammering the league for allowing players to take a knee.

It looks like the war between NFL players, the fans and President Trump is nearing an end. The fans and President Trump are clearly coming out on top.
