The New England Patriots honored American terror victim Ezra Schwartz with a moment of silence before their Monday Night Football game against the Buffalo Bills yesterday. Schwartz was an 18-year-old student and lifelong Patriots fan from the Boston area who was killed by a Palestinian terrorist last week.

“Ladies and Gentlemen, in a month in which the NFL salutes the service of our brave men and women in our armed forces, we also pause to remember the many who have recently lost their lives in senseless terrorist attacks abroad,” said John Dolan, the Patriots’ public address announcer, during the nationwide broadcast. “Last Thursday this reality struck close to home when 18 year-old Ezra Schwartz, a native of Sharon, Massachusetts and a huge Patriots fan, was gunned down nearly 5,500 miles from home while studying abroad. At this time we would like to honor Ezra Schwartz and the hundreds of victims like him with a moment of silence.”
