The New York Jets paid tribute to life of Green Country native Dennis Byrd before their game against the Baltimore Ravens Sunday. 

The team held a moment of silence before the game.  Dennis' wife Angela, and their children served as honorary captains on the field. That included 12-year-old Zach - who was in the car with Dennis when they were hit head-on by another driver near Claremore.

Dennis died at the scene, while Zach suffered injuries to his leg.

The Jets were able to give him a win - beating the Ravens 24 to 16.
