In the 80th anniversary season, the Pittsburgh Steelers are using Sunday night's nationally televised broadcast to show off their storied history - including the throwback jerseys first unveiled in Week 8. They will be bringing back former players, says Tribune-Review reporter Mark Kaboly, including one of the men named to the Steelers All Time Team, Joey Porter.
According to Kaboly, Porter promises to give "one final boot" to the crowd at Heinz Field.

Recent Pro Football Hall of Fame inductees Dermontti Dawson and Jack Butler will be present for the entire weekend.
Heinz Field will host the 2012 Taste of the Steelers event Saturday, which is dedicated to the 80th Season Celebration Game. The event will feature players from most decades in the 80-year history of the Steelers.
