Three Miami Dolphins Players Defy Trump Order to Stand During Anthem

Running back Jay Ajayi ran 28 times for 122 yards, and Parkey made four field goals in four attempts.

New Orleans finally put a touchdown drive together, starting the third quarter with an 11-play, 77-yard march that took almost six minutes.

All of the major teams in action, including a Florida Gators team who has been living life on the edge the last two weeks with last second heroics and a Florida State Seminoles team who hasn't been in their current spot in almost three decades - and it's not something they are proud of. Now, he will try to reach the end zone for the first time this season.

After practice Friday, Ajayi was scheduled to have an event to promote his new lifestyle brand called YURP, which stands for Your Unlocked Raw Power, and he will take part Saturday in the National Football League event promoting the game. Ajayi has been battling some knee problems, after compiling 122 yards in the season opening win. The Dolphins will get their running game going on the Saints.

The Falcons didn't have to punt a single time until the fourth quarter. Hunt has 401 yards rushing in three games for an 8.5 average. The biggest news from this contest was the improved play of the New Orleans defense. He's not even trying to make it look like he is involved in the play.


But it also appears that three members of the Miami Dolphin continued to kneel for the National Anthem.

Stills situation: Wide receiver Kenny Stills was listed on the injury report all week and did only limited work, but Gase said he should be good to go against the Saints.

The Dolphins are 1-6 SU in their last seven games in Week 4. If his mind is right, he should be able to help the Dolphins. "Not necessarily what we were doing, more of just get the body moving". Drake needs more of an opportunity to make plays from scrimmage, and getting him involved on third down might be a way for the Dolphins to see what he has to offer. This is the week they could get going. After allowing a combined 65 points in their first two contests this season, the Saints held Cam Newton and company to 13 points in a huge road win. The ground game has floundered (3.0 YPC) while quarterback Jay Cutler hasn't thrown multiple touchdown passes in a game since October 2015. He has TD catch in last two games. His long reception is only 18 yards.

The Saints looked great last week, while the Dolphins looked awful. Miami's pass defense has allowed good days by Chargers QB Philip Rivers (331 yards, one touchdown, no interceptions, 110.6 passer rating) and Jets QB Josh McCown (249 yards, one touchdown, no interceptions, 126.3 passer rating).

The Dolphins have struggled in coverage - quarterbacks have completed 79 percent of their passes against their defense. Then again, any game involving highly productive quarterback Drew Brees, head coach Sean Payton and the New Orleans is traditionally entertaining.
