NFL Pays Tribute To Kobe Bryant, Helicopter Crash Victims At Super Bowl

LOS ANGELES (CSBLA) — Ahead of Sunday's Super Bowl, the Chiefs and 49ers held a moment of silence in honor of Kobe Bryant and the other victims of last week's helicopter crash.

The teams lined up on the 24-yard lines as a tribute to the Lakers legend and the eight others killed in that crash. The NFL also honored Chris Doleman.

During the halftime show, Shakira and Jennifer Lopez took to the stage amid purple and gold lights that got brighter as the performance went on — likely a subtle nod to Kobe's time with the Lakers.
