The Super Bowl LIV champion Kansas City Chiefs and the Houston Texans kicked off the 2020 NFL season on Sept. 10, in front of a socially distance crowd of about 17,000 on Thursday night.

In the end the Chiefs overcame their slow start and defeated the Texans in a 34-20 win.

Moments before kickoff, Kansas City was the only team on the field at Arrowhead Stadium for “Lift Every Voice and Sing” video performed by Alicia Keys with clips of the Black Lives Matter movement played on the scoreboard and another pre video of the National Anthem, sung by Chloe x Halle.

When the Texans finally joined the Chiefs on the field during a moment of silence, both teams linked arms in a sign of solidarity for those fighting social injustice, Here’s what happened:

Yes people what you witness was boos, when the Chiefs linked arms with the Texans.

Are you shocked, confused, disappointed?  It’s unclear if the fans were booing  because the Texans was not on the field for the National Anthem or if the boos were directed at the moment of silence for unity.

The NFL pledged to raise awareness for social justice issues this season, committing $250 million over a 10-year period toward combating systemic racism.

JJ Watts spoke about the fans booing after the game.
