In the final two minutes of the Eagles-Lions game, a couple protesters ran onto the field, immediately after the Lions snapped the ball. For the sake of everyone's safety, the game was on hold while security tried to get them off the field.
The cameras did not have a good glimpse of the banner they were holding. But apparently, it was to promote an end to animal cruelty:

Given that it's Thanksgiving, it seems like an appropriate thing to promote. But it was nevertheless a strange moment in the game.
