(AP) -- NFL teams held moments of silence to remember the victims of the school shootings Friday in Newtown, Conn.
Flags were at half-staff at M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday when the Baltimore Ravens hosted the Denver Broncos.
With the Maryland National Guard standing on the opposite end of the field from the flag bearers, the scoreboards went black as the public address announcer asked the crowd to observe "silent reflection" in the wake of Friday's "horrific tragedy."
Players from both team stood stoically on the sideline. The moment of silence was followed by the national anthem.
