(AP) Pittsburgh Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey has invited members of this weekend's visiting team to be his dinner guests.


Pouncey's twin brother, Mike, and the rest of the Miami Dolphins' offensive line will share a meal at Maurkice's home Saturday, the eve of the game between the teams.


Other members of the Pouncey family will also attend. Mike said the group has ordered dinner from a steakhouse.


"You know linemen have got to eat steak," Mike said Friday. "It's going to be a good weekend."


Mike said he's only sorry his brother will be a spectator Sunday. Maurkice is out for the season after hurting his knee in the opener.


"You always want to see your brother playing," Mike said. "I hate that he's going through what he's going through this year, but he's a tough dude."


Even with Maurkice sidelined, Mike said a Miami win would represent a breakthrough victory against his brother.


"It would be the first time I beat him at something," Mike said. "It'll probably be a long, long time before he can get back at me."


The last time the teams played, in 2010, Maurkice was an NFL rookie and Mike was still with the Florida Gators.


"I was in the stands with a Steelers jersey on," Mike said. "That's a long time ago. I was laughing with my brother about it. That was one of my first NFL games I ever went to, and I was actually cheering against the team I play on. Weird."
