Michael Bennett stood for the national anthem prior to Thursday night’s Seattle Seahawks-Arizona Cardinals game, which was a departure from his usual behavior this season. So why the change? NBC announcer Mike Tirico said on the telecast that Bennett told them he was standing this week to make it clear he supports the military, with Saturday being Veteran’s Day and it being Salute to Service week in the NFL. Bennett’s father served in the Navy.
