Pence, the former governor of IN, earlier posted a picture of himself and his wife Karen Pence at the Lucas Oil Stadium IN Indianapolis, he IN a Colts hat and shirt and the second lady sporting a team jersey.
The controversial practice of taking a knee was started by former-San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who has yet to be signed to a new team after his contract with the 49ers expired a year ago.
Players have been kneeling in response to social injustice.
In what appeared to be a gaffe, it emerged that the image Pence had tweeted with his wife Karen at the game had been in fact from 2014.

Houston weighs in on National Football League kneeling protests
The president may have his theories, but explaining why ratings are down isn't simple. They're likely to be up overall for the week after Monday night's game, he said.
He said he doesn't think it's too much to ask NFL players to respect the flag and national anthem. Among them, the quarterback's own girlfriend, Nessa Diab, who wrote, "The reports that Colin will stand for the anthem are completely false!"
Howard Bryant, ESPN Magazine columnist also weighed in on Twitter with what he claimed was confirmation from Kaepernick.
Pence's protest was an administration attempt at propaganda that was meant to appeal to their base supporters while hijacking the news cycle away from important and less flattering issues for the White House.
The Colts wore black T-shirts with the words "We Will" on the front and "Stand for equality, justice, unity, respect, dialogue, opportunity" on the back for the second week in a row as players stood with their arms locked during the anthem.
At a campaign rally in Alabama last month, Trump shouted, "Wouldn't you love to see one of these National Football League owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, "Get that son of a bitch off the field right now"?" he said to roaring applause. Even conservative owners like the Dallas Cowboys' Jerry Jones and the Washington Redskins' Dan Snyder (who gave $1 million to Trump's campaign) took the field to participate, arguably diluting the protests' meaning.
Mike Pence has not supported the " Take a knee " (kneel).
