Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will wear a special pair of cleats on Sunday, per ESPN's Adam Schefter, honoring victims of the Tree of Life Synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh on Oct. 27. 

Roethlisberger's cleats feature a Star of David atop the Steelers' traditional logo, adding the phrase "stronger than hate" near the toe.

The Steelers held a moment of silence to honor the 11 victims before their contest vs. Cleveland on Oct. 28. Roethlisberger's cleats are following the lead of the Pittsburgh Penguins, who wore "stronger than hate" patches on Tuesday night against the Islanders.

Pittsburgh will travel on the road this week, facing the Ravens. Kickoff from M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, Md. is slated for 1:00 p.m. ET.
