If a Thanksgiving game against the Steelers wasn’t enough, fans will also be glad to know the Ravens will sport their popular alternate jerseys for the primetime matchup.
The Ravens will wear their black jerseys and pants for the first time this season.
“It sparks you up a little bit and makes you want to play a little better when you have that black on,” rookie
This is the second time this season that the Ravens have worn the alternate threads, as they also went with the black jerseys for the Week 6 loss against Green Bay. The Ravens wore white pants in that contest.
“I like the black jerseys,” Elam said. “In college I never could wear black, so I like it. It makes you tough and things like that. We’re wearing it, so we have to take advantage of it.”
Teams are allowed to wear their alternate uniforms twice a year, and not during the playoffs. The Ravens have worn black jerseys twice a year in each of the last three seasons.
The Ravens are 10-5 all time in black jerseys, and 7-2 under Head Coach John Harbaugh.
