As veteran wide receiver Steve Smith prepares to play his former team, he’ll be dressed in style when the Carolina Panthers come to Baltimore as the Ravens will wear their alternate black jerseys on Sunday.
Popular with players and fans alike, the Ravens will don their black tops for the 17th time since the alternate look was introduced in 2004. Baltimore holds an 11-5 record when wearing the black jerseys and is 8-2 under head coach John Harbaugh.
Last year, the Ravens lost when they wore black jerseys with white pants against the Green Bay Packers before beating the Pittsburgh Steelers while sporting all-black uniforms on Thanksgiving night later in the season.
The Panthers will be visiting M&T Bank Stadium for the first time since 2006 when they beat the Ravens in a 23-21 final that included a huge day from Smith that included eight catches for 189 yards and a touchdown against his future team.
