PITTSBURGH (AP)—Family members of the passengers who died in the Flight 93 crash on Sept. 11, 2001, will be recognized on the field before the Titans-Steelers NFL season opener Thursday night. :applaudit::applaudit::applaudit:

The game will be played on the eve of the eighth anniversary of the terrorist attacks. The official 9/11 Commission report said hijackers crashed Flight 93 in Somerset County, Pa., about 65 miles east of Pittsburgh, as the passengers fought to gain control of the c0ckpit.

Those being recognized will wear No. 93 Steelers jerseys with the names of their family members on the back.:thumbsup::thumbsup:

Before the game, the Steelers will recognize their Super Bowl-winning team of last season with an on-field salute. Former Steelers defensive back Rod Woodson, recently inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, will take part in the pregame coin toss.
