The Oakland Raiders and Houston Texans have observed a moment of silence for Raiders' owner Al Davis before their game.
Davis died Saturday at his home in Oakland, Calif. He was 82.
The teams and fans paused for the moment Sunday while a short video of Davis was shown on the jumbotron. Most Raiders players kept their heads down and a few clasped hands as the video was shown.
The Raiders won three Super Bowls for their Hall of Fame owner.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said before the Bills game against the Eagles that a moment of silence would be held before every game this weekend.
