The Ravens will be back in black for three home games this upcoming season, the most during Head Coach John Harbaugh’s three-year tenure.

The alternate black jerseys with white pants will be broken out against Denver on Oct. 10, Tampa Bay on Nov. 28 and New Orleans on Dec. 19.

Every NFL team is permitted to wear its alternate or throwback jersey up to three times a year, but must choose one or the other. In other words, you can’t wear the throwbacks twice a year and alternates once.

It’s an easy decision for the Ravens since the franchise, established in 1996, doesn’t have throwbacks.

Last year the Ravens wore black once against Chicago in the home finale. They also wore them once in 2008 versus the Redskins at M&T Bank Stadium.

The Ravens are also changing up their preseason style. The team will now wear their purple jerseys for both preseason home games (against Carolina on Aug. 12 and the New York Giants on Aug. 28) after donning the white jerseys the past two seasons.

The Ravens will be wearing their purple jerseys at their five regular season home games. Jersey choices for away games will be made in July. The Ravens will be in white unless the opposing team chooses to wear white.
