GLENDALE - 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 Arizona resident Jordin Sparks sang the national anthem nearby in the south end zone.
After the game, Arians said the decision to lock arms came from the players. "That's all over. I coach football. I'm not a politician," he said.
