It’s a key weekend for the National Football League, and the results have nothing to do with playoff prospects. Instead, all eyes will turn once again to the pre-game activities and the player choices during the national anthem. After a one-week respite by some players for Veteran’s Day – which saw participation in kneeling and other forms of protest drop significantly – the majority of players now will have to decide if they have made their point or will continue to stage the protests.

Very few players protested the national anthem in Week 10 of the NFL season after the NFL Players Association asked all players to observe a two-minute moment of silence to honor veterans before Veterans Day. Players, including Michael Bennett who has protested most of the season, stood for the anthem. Tennessee Titans wide receiver Rishard Matthews, who has stayed in the locker room when his players take the field for the anthem, walked onto the field and held hands with soldiers before standing for the anthem.

NEW ORLEANS-Here is what you need to know on this Sunday, November 19, four days before the Washington Redskins play the New York Giants on Thanksgiving Day at FedEx Field. Will the Redskins commit to running the ball?

Denver Broncos general manager and president of football operations John Elway slammed the team at an event on Friday. The Broncos have lost five straight games and have not been competitive, with all the defeats by double-digits and a combined total of 97. The Broncos are also the only team to lose to the New York Giants this season.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- With a five-game losing streak and six losses in the last seven games, Denver Broncos president of football operations/general manager John Elway gave coach Vance Joseph a vote of confidence Friday night, but added the team Elway has constructed "got a little bit soft.'' Speaking after an event at Sports Authority Field at Mile High to honor former coach Red Miller and Hall of Fame running back Terrell Davis, Elway made it clear he still expects to see a team try to dig out from its current struggles. The Broncos are 3-6 and face the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday and Elway minced no words about what he thinks has gone wrong. "I think at this point we're still trying to figure

The Kansas City Chiefs probably don't know what to expect from the New York Giants, and neither do the Giants. The Chiefs (6-3) are well-rested coming off a bye week, while the Giants (1-8) seemingly have hit rock bottom after getting blown out by the Rams two weeks ago and then losing to the previously winless San Francisco 49ers last weekend. Not only were the losses embarrassing, but the Giants showed a lack of effort several times in both games, like a team that was ready to play out the season.

Each week, we'll take a look at how the Eagles' division rivals fared the previous weekend (spoiler alert: everybody lost!) and what they have upcoming. This week the Giants channeled their inner-Hinkie, Washington seemed to be short on talent, and the Cowboys had literally every single thing go terrible, horribly wrong. What Happened: Oh my goodness, for the love of all that is football-holy, I hope you didn't watch this game.

Will Beatty is back in the NFL after signing with the Eagles on Tuesday, and he brought his crazy facemask with him. Beatty started 63 games during the previous eight seasons with the New York Giants, primarily at left tackle. By no means is Beatty's facemask intended to be a fashion statement.

Week 10’s biggest killer: Green Bay over Chicago (0.87 percent) Week 10’s biggest success: Detroit over Cleveland (72.77 percent) My picks so far: Buffalo – Oakland – New England — Seattle — Philadelphia — Atlanta (x) — Minnesota — New Orleans — Jacksonville

Reid, whose teams are 16-2 in games following a week off, is dialed in to making sure his team, which prior to the bye lost three out of four games, has cleaned up the little things that were part of that mini skid by the time they take the MetLife Stadium field Sunday for their meeting with the New York Giants (1-8). "Listen, I tell the guys that every week: You got to focus on getting better as a team," Reid said when asked what his message has been to his players this week. While Reid wouldn't shed too much clarity into how he and his staff were addressing the little things that have marred the Chiefs' won-loss record, he did emphasize that the Giants, who are amid their worst season in decades and who have yet to win at home this year, are not going to be the pushover the oddsmakers might think.
