All three area National Football League teams will wear decals in memory of those who were killed at the elementary school shooting.

Giants, Jets, Pats to Honor Newtown Victims

Add the National Football League to the long list of organizations honoring the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

The New York Giants, New York Jets and New England Patriots will all wear special decals during their games this week in memory of those who lost their lives.

The Giants tweeted a photo of the decal they will wear on their helmet when they visit the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.

The Jets play at Tennessee in a nationally televised Monday night game.

The Jets will wear circular decals that will display the initials S.H.E.S., according to a team statement.

Head Coach Rex Ryan spoke to the events in Newtown at a press conference today, saying "First off, obviously, with the tragedy in Newtown, Conn., our thoughts and prayers are with all the people impacted by that tragedy."

The Patriots, who are at home this week, will send up 26 flares individually as part of their pregame ceremony on Sunday night. The Pats will also have a special decal made.

Every National Football League game will hold a moment of silence.
