Ravens breaking out black jerseys for Pittsburgh game

September 28, 2017 | Luke Jones

The Ravens will try to give themselves an extra boost in bouncing back from one of the worst losses in franchise history by breaking out their popular black jerseys for Sunday’s showdown with Pittsburgh.

This marks the fourth time in six years that Baltimore will wear its alternate top against its AFC North rival. Dating back to 2004, the Ravens own a 16-6 all-time record wearing the black jerseys, which includes wins last season against Cincinnati in Week 12 and Philadelphia in Week 15.

Teams are allowed to wear alternate or throwback jerseys for two regular-season games per season, but that does not include the “Color Rush” uniforms introduced for Thursday night contests over the last couple seasons. Last year, the Ravens wore all-purple uniforms for the first time in team history in a win over the Cleveland Browns in Week 10.

The Steelers have not won a game at M&T Bank Stadium since 2012.
