Steelers to wear Color Rush jerseys on Thanksgiving vs. Ravens

The Pittsburgh Steelers will attempt to improve to 11-0 on the season in a Thanksgiving Day clash with the division-rival Baltimore Ravens, and the team will be doing so in style.

The AFC North front-runners have announced that the team’s incredibly popular Color Rush jerseys will be worn Thursday night in the nationally televised showdown with the Ravens at Heinz Field.

Thursday will mark the first time the Steelers will wear their Color Rush jerseys this season. It also will likely be the last time, as Steelers Depot notes, that fans will be likely allowed in Heinz Field in 2020 in light of the dangerous surge of COVID-19 cases in Pennsylvania and across the country.

The Color Rush jerseys have been a huge hit with Steelers fans, and the team’s players appear to be quite fond of them as well.

“I love them. I really love them,” Joe Haden told Steelers.com’s Teresa Varley. “They look sick. And we play well in them. You look good, you feel good, and you play good. I just really love them and am excited we get to wear them.”

Likely helping along how much Steelers players love donning the Color Rush jerseys is how the successful the team has been while wearing them. Pittsburgh has posted a 5-1 record while sporting the Color Rush jerseys going back to the 2016 season.
