With protests raging, NBC will televise national anthem before Patriots-Chiefs opener

The eyes of the sports TV world will be on NBC on Thursday, Sept. 7 as the network televises the 2017 NFL regular-season opener between the Patriots and Chiefs. With the controversy surrounding Colin Kaepernick's national anthem protest still raging, the network will televise the playing of the national anthem at Gillette Stadium. NFL broadcast partners typically do not show the playing of the national anthem except before the Super Bowl, opening night or other special games, as they usually are in commercial due to time constraints.
