The Arizona Cardinals stood and locked arms near the south end zone during the playing of the national anthem before Monday night's game vs. the Dallas Cowboys at University of Phoenix Stadium.
Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald locked arms with coach Bruce Arians and team president Michael Bidwill as pop star Jordin Sparks sang the national anthem nearby in the south end zone.
Before the anthem, the Cowboys -- including team owner Jerry Jones -- came on to the field and locked arms, then briefly took a knee to a chorus of boos before returning to the sideline.
