Ravens To Wear Black Jerseys Sunday

Dust off those black jerseys at home.

The Ravens will wear their black alternate jerseys for the first time this season for Sunday's showdown with the Pittsburgh Steelers at M&T Bank Stadium.

"Man I've been waiting to wear those black jerseys all year," wide receiver Jacoby Jones said. "That black is pretty solid. It's mean. It makes a statement."

The Ravens have held off wearing the popular black jerseys up to this point, despite already having four primetime night games, where they often go with the alternate look. 

Baltimore wore the black jerseys twice last season, for primetime games against the San Francisco 49ers and New York Jets. The Ravens won both of those games.

The Ravens are 9-2 all time in black jerseys, including 6-0 under Head Coach John Harbaugh.

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 four seasons. 

This will be the first time the Ravens have donned the black uniforms since the NFL switched to Nike as the league's on-field apparel supplier.  Like they did with the white and purple jerseys, the Ravens maintained the same overall look for their black alternates.
