If you are watching the Cowboys-Jaguars game taking place in London right now then you probably have noticed the red patches and decals on both teams jerseys and helmets, respectively.

It turns out that the flower patches are actually called remembrance poppies, which are the flowers that people wear to celebrate Remembrance Day. Much like Veteran's Day here in the US, Remembrance Day is a holiday observed by the Commonwealth of Nations to honor soldiers who lost their lives at war. The folks over at Deadspin further point out that poppies first became associated with Remembrance Day thanks to the poem "In Flanders Fields."

Check out Denard Robinson showing off the remembrance poppy patch for Jacksonville above and make sure to drop this nugget of information on your friends while watching the remainder of the game.
