Players on the Chiefs and the Houston Texans gathered in the middle of the Arrowhead Stadium field just ahead of kickoff, linked arms and asked for “a moment of silence dedicated to the ongoing fight for equality in our country,” according to an NFL statement, which included the hashtag “It Takes All of Us.”
