Ravens to break out black jerseys against Cleveland


OWINGS MILLS, Md. — The Ravens will be back in black against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.
Trying to win their first home game of the 2015 season, the Ravens will wear their black alternate jerseys for the first time this season. Baltimore will also don various types of pink gear as part of the NFL’s efforts to promote breast cancer awareness.
“We have the opportunity against a good team to come out in front of our home crowd,” outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil said. “[The fans] were great the last time we played at home. We’re excited. We’re excited to wear those uniforms. The black is always nice.”
The Ravens own a 13-5 all–time record when wearing their black jerseys and are 10-2 under head coach John Harbaugh. Baltimore won both games wearing the black tops last season, blowing out Carolina and Atlanta at M&T Bank Stadium.
NFL teams are allowed to wear alternate or throwback uniforms for two regular-season games per year.
