OWINGS MILLS, Md. — After debuting their “Color Rush” uniforms earlier this month, the Ravens will break out their popular black jerseys for Sunday’s tilt against Cincinnati.
There was much fanfare about Baltimore’s all-purple uniforms unveiled in the Week 10 win over Cleveland, but the black jerseys have been used as an alternate look for at least one or two games per season since 2004. It remains unclear whether the Ravens will sport all-black uniforms against the Bengals, but the team wore black pants for Wednesday’s padded practice, which is usually an indication of what they wear for that week’s game.
The Ravens own a 14-6 all-time record when wearing their black jerseys and are 11-3 under head coach John Harbaugh. Baltimore went 1-1 wearing the black tops last season, losing to the Browns in Week 5 and upsetting Pittsburgh in Week 16.
NFL teams are allowed to wear alternate or throwback uniforms for two regular-season games per season.
