In what’s become a much-anticipated tradition for fans over the last decade, the Ravens announced they will don their black jerseys against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.

This will coincide with the team wearing pink as part of the NFL’s breast cancer awareness program for the month of October. It hasn’t been determined whether Baltimore will wear its white or black pants against the Packers, who will visit the Ravens for the first time since the 2005 season.

Teams are allowed to wear an alternate jersey twice a year, but this option isn’t available for playoff games. Last season, the Ravens lost to Pittsburgh when they wore black jerseys with white pants on Dec. 2 but dominated the New York Giants in Week 16 when they went with the all-black uniform combination.

The Ravens are 10-4 all-time when they wear their black tops and 7-1 under head coach John Harbaugh. The black jerseys were first worn in a Sunday night win over the Cleveland Browns on Nov. 7, 2004.
