NFL news involves President Donald Trump again, as he issuing more demands on Twitter about what players should do during Sunday’s games. Setting up a scenario where Trump is likely to claim credit for any team that stands while the national anthem is performed this weekend.

“Very important that NFL players STAND tomorrow, and always, for the playing of our National Anthem,” President Trump tweeted on Saturday. “Respect our Flag and our Country!” His thoughts over the past week have been echoed and exacerbated by many people [VIDEO] on social media.

Many NFL fans hope that the story from the weekend is good football and that the controversies don’t take center stage during the Week 4 schedule.

There are certainly some good games on the docket, including the Oakland Raiders vs. Denver Broncos, which will have a big impact on the AFC West standings this year.

Seattle Seahawks vs. Indianapolis Colts on Sunday night football

NFL news has included the Seattle Seahawks a lot over the past few days as the team prepares to play during primetime on Sunday evening. The team is trying to deal with the injury to Doug Baldwin while preparing to rebound from an ugly showing on defense against the Tennessee Titans. If this was a college football schedule, the Indianapolis Colts might get called a “cupcake opponent” on their schedule.

Having the Seahawks vs. Colts game on national television might hurt TV ratings quite a bit, with the chance that President Trump will take credit if viewers decide to tune out.

The reality, though, is that this is predicted to be a very one-sided game in favor of the Seahawks, so viewers on the East coach may have little reason to turn the TV to it.

New Orleans Saints vs. Miami Dolphins starts early on October 1

In other NFL news for the weekend, the New Orleans Saints and Miami Dolphins are in London this week preparing for a Sunday game at Wembley Stadium. It’s an early start as well, with kickoff scheduled for 9:30 AM ET, forcing Saints and Dolphins fans out of bed a bit earlier than normal for a Sunday. It’s also important for fantasy football owners to get those lineups set before players get locked.

Will fans get to see a better game than the 44-7 win by the Jacksonville Jaguars over the Baltimore Ravens in London last week? The NFL certainly hopes so, as the game became less of a story than what the players were or weren’t doing on the sidelines during the national anthem. The London game will serve as a bookend with the game at CenturyLink Field to close out the night on NBC.
