    Pittsburgh – Moments Of Silence At NFL Games For Pittsburgh Synagogue Dead

    Pittsburgh – The Browns and Steelers observed a moment of silence at Heinz Field for the 11 people killed by a gunman inside a Pittsburgh synagogue a day earlier.

    There were other such tributes at NFL games elsewhere Sunday.

    Eight men and three women were murdered inside the Tree of Life Synagogue during services on Saturday. The names of the victims, which included a pair of brothers and a married couple, were released Sunday.

    In a statement issued before his team’s game, Steelers owner Art Rooney II said: “Our hearts are heavy, but we must stand against anti-Semitism and hate crimes of any nature and come together to preserve our values and our community.”

    Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto called the slayings the “darkest day of Pittsburgh’s history.”
