In order to show a united front (against Trump), the NFL announced today that it’s bringing back an ad made for the Superbowl earlier this year.

The ads original purpose was to “demonstrate the power of football to bring people together,” the league said.

The one-minute ad will run again during prime time “Sunday Night Football” which airs on Sunday.

“We think this is the single best response to demonstrate what we are about,” an NFL spokesman told CNN.

In the ad, actor/narrator Forest Whitaker says:

Inside these lines, we may have our differences, but recognize there’s more that unites us.

Inside these lines, it’s a game of inches, and there’s no such thing as an easy yard when you’re fighting to move forward.

Inside these lines, we’re not only defined by our victories, but by the way we handle our defeats.

Inside these lines, we can bring out the best in each other,

And live united–

Inside these lines.”
