Ravens vs. Steelers: Joey Porter, other former players to be honored at Heinz Field

All this season, the Pittsburgh Steelers have been commemorating 80 years of Steelers' football with special events for the fans, and on Sunday night Pittsburgh will continue the celebrations by honoring former players before a key divisional battle with the Baltimore Ravens. Via Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:

In addition to Porter, recent Steelers Hall of Fame inductees Dermontti Dawson and Jack Butler will be honored as well Sunday night at Heinz Field. The team will be donning their throwback uniforms, first seen in Week 8, on Sunday evening as well.

As part of the "80th Season Celebration Weekend", the team will also be hosting a 2012 Taste of the Steelers event on Saturday night that will feature numerous players from the 80-year history of the franchise.

Kickoff on Sunday night is scheduled for 8:20 p.m. ET. The game will be televised on NBC. The Steelers will be without injured quarterback Ben Roethlisberger against the Ravens. The team is 0-4 against Baltimore without Big Ben since his 2004 rookie season.
