NFL holding moment of silence before games for Paris attack victims

The NFL is pushing kickoff times back and holding a moment of silence for the victims of the attacks in Paris on Sunday according to the league.

The league is beefing up security inside and outside of stadiums for Week 10's games and also paying tribute to those who lost their lives during the terrorist attacks. 

The result of moving back the kickoff times means the National Anthem will be shown on televised broadcasts as well as the moment of silence. 

Additionally, the French flag will be shown on videoboards and prominently involved around stadiums and in the broadcasts.

Saturday's college action saw various football teams, including quite notably the Army Black Knights, display the French flag as well.

Sunday could feature more tributes, including teams using stadiums to display French colors such as we saw from the Saints on Twitter.
