It's purple vs. purple Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium with a showdown between the Baltimore Ravens and Minnesota Vikings.

It will be the Ravens' second time wearing this combination this season. Baltimore also donned it for the thrilling "Monday Night Football" comeback win against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 5.

The purple jersey, black pant combo is one of the Ravens' most successful with a .759 winning percentage.

The last time the Ravens and Vikings squared off, in 2017, Minnesota wore the purple jerseys at home for a 24-16 victory.

The Ravens also wore purple jerseys and black pants that day.
