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.
