UNDATED (www.incnow.tv) - Tributes for the fallen were seen all across the National Football League Sunday.

A moment of silence was observed before each game and stadium flags flew at half-staff. Some players made their own personal tributes to the victims of the Sandy Hook shooting.

New York Giants wide receiver, Victor Cruz, wrote the name of a young victim on his gloves and shoes. Some teams brought young children onto the field before the games and players stood hand-in-hand with them.

Many players, coaches, and fans stood with their hands over their hearts and were visibly moved.
