The ongoing protests over the death of Michael Brown made a quick appearance at the Edward Jones Dome during the second half of the St. Louis Rams’ game Monday night.

Protesters briefly hung a banner reading, "Rams fans know on and off the field black lives matter," over of the top of a jumbo video board in the north end zone during the 49ers’ go-ahead drive in the third quarter.

A few minutes later, about three-dozen protesters marched with their hands raised in an aisle just below the upper deck in the south end zone. Five police officers followed them.

The protests stem from the August shooting death of Brown, who was black and unarmed, by white Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.
