There were no National Anthem demonstrations shown by the Carolina Panthers on Sunday before their game at New England.

Every player was on the sideline for the anthem, unlike Week 3 against the Saints, when defensive end Julius Peppers stayed in the locker room.

Linebacker Thomas Davis stood with his hands in prayer, as he did last week, and this time was joined by running back Jonathan Stewart.

Quarterback Cam Newton and other Panthers hinted this week that there might be possible demonstrations by the team in the future, saying: "There's something that's in the midst. The time is upon us for us to do something to bring people closer together."

Thank you @panthersphotog for this pic of me praying during the national anthem today, as I will continue to do. I am a firm believer that prayer changes things & as a country, we must stick together. Tough day in many ways but trust and believe, we will bounce back & continue to Keep Pounding!
