Carolina Panthers tight end Jeremy Shockey accused several Houston Texans players of being unpatriotic at Sunday’s game, according to the Houston Chronicle.

"I was pretty upset in the way they weren't showing respect to America during the national anthem," Shockey said. "This is America and you should at least give respect to America."

Shockey claimed that he saw “about 10 players” who didn’t place their hands on their chest during the national anthem.

During the Panthers 28-13 victory over the Texans, Shockey pointed and yelled at linebacker DeMeco Ryans and cornerback Jason Allen after catching a nine-yard touchdown pass.

Ryans, in response to Shockey’s comments, questioned the tight end’s patriotism.
