HOUSTON, Texas -- If you bought the Sunday Ticket, you may get a refund.

NFL fans are burning gear and tickets to show their disapproval of their team's decision to protest social injustice during the national anthem.

AT&T, the company that owns DirecTV, would not confirm the refunds to ESPN.

The cost for the Sunday Ticket is $280.

An NFL spokesman told ESPN that ratings overall were up 3 percent for week 3 compared with week 3 last year, thanks partly to the game on Monday Night Football involving the Dallas Cowboys.
