SANTA CLARA, Calif. (WTXF/AP) - The NFL's regular season starts this week. There's a game on Thursday. The Cleveland Browns come to town to take on the Eagles, Sunday at 1, but it's next Monday night's late game that may draw the most attention.
That's when the returning Los Angeles Rams head up the coast to play the San Francisco 49ers in their Santa Clara stadium in the Silicon Valley, almost an hour south of the City by the Bay.
The Santa Clara police chief has vowed to continue providing a safe environment at San Francisco home games after the union representing his officers threatened to boycott policing the stadium if the 49ers don't discipline Colin Kaepernick for criticizing police and refusing to stand during the national anthem.
