Sometimes there just aren’t any words.

That’s the idea behind “Speechless,” a series of public service announcements against domestic violence and sexual scheduled to debut Thanksgiving Day during NFL football games.

The spots, featuring current and former players, are powerful. They’re unscripted and actually show what happened between takes of the “No More” PSAs that were taped with the players and broadcast during NFL games since Oct. 23. You can watch the men as they grapple with the emotions of talking about domestic violence and sexual assault.

The idea, according to No More’s Web site, is to encourage conversations about domestic violence and sexual assault.
