HOUSTON -- The Oakland Raiders wore decals on their helmets to honor Raiders' owner Al Davis during their game Sunday against the Houston Texans.
The stickers, which were on the back of the helmets, said "AL" in silver letters over the black Raiders shield.
Davis died Saturday at his home in Oakland, Calif. He was 82.
The Raiders and Texans also observed a moment of silence for Davis before the game.
The teams and fans paused for the moment 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.
Too bad Al won't be around to see the rest of the Raider's season. Right now they lead the league in rushing and are looking better than they have in at least a decade. You might not like the Raiders but you gotta respect the force that was Al Davis.
