Green Bay Packers fans weren't the only group outside Lambeau Field on Sunday morning. A sizable contingent turned out to protest the name and logo of the opposing team.

There have been calls for years for Washington's NFL team to change its name and mascot. Its name is widely deemed offensive, while studies have shown that American Indian mascots can have harmful effects on Native American youth.
