RAVENS DONNING PINK SUNDAY: The Pittsburgh Steelers included a good amount of pink in their uniforms during the Ravens’ Week 4 win at Heinz Field to participate in the NFL’s recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The Baltimore Ravens however did not include pink in their uniforms.
The Ravens will include pink in their uniforms Sunday against the Broncos, as Harbaugh explained that the entire team wanted to participate in the cause for one game, instead of having different players participate in different games. (The league gave teams a three week window to include pink in their uniforms.)
Here are the cleats the Ravens will wear Sunday…
