The Pittsburgh Steelers are encouraging fans to arrive early to avoid anticipated heavy traffic and last-minute crowds at the gate, and to enjoy in-stadium pregame activities for Thursday Night Football vs. Baltimore. Kickoff is set for 8:25 p.m. and all gates will open at 6:30 p.m.

At halftime, 2015 Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee, Jerome Bettis, will be given his Hall of Fame ring in a special on-field presentation. Bettis was enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, on August 8, 2015.

Fans are encouraged to stay in their seats for Bettis’ ring presentation as Fancam will be taking a super high resolution interactive image of the entire stadium from midfield at halftime. Fans can visit to find themselves, watch the halftime ceremony and to get the most in-depth look at every Steelers fan at Heinz Field.

The Steelers will celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Month with a variety of elements during the team’s Thursday Night Football game. Pink Terrible Towels will be handed to all patrons at all gates.

Ford, UPMC Cancer Centers and Magee Women’s Hospital of UPMC will be presenting a $10,000 check and Ford will present a “Warrior Quilt” to the Susan G. Komen Pittsburgh Foundation in a special on field presentation prior to kickoff. Ford will also have an F-150 decorated in Warriors in Pink colors on display at the Ford Fan Zone.

Local female soldiers from the US Army Pittsburgh Recruiting Company Color Guard will host our nation’s colors. Breast Cancer Survivors will stand with Steelers’ players during the National Anthem, and they will lead the Terrible Towel Twirl along with Gladys Bettis, mother of Hall-of Famer Jerome Bettis, and Breast Cancer survivor.
