Steelers will wear throwback jerseys in Week 11 vs. Detroit Lions

Justin K. Aller

The bees will be back on the field in Week 11 against the Lions.

The Steelers have announced they will wear their throwback jerseys in their Week 11 game against the Detroit Lions.

They will only wear them once this year, after wearing them twice (with a 1-1 record) in them last season. They defeated the Washington Redskins but lost to Baltimore, incidentally, in Week 11.

The controversial jerseys often draw negative criticism from outside Pittsburgh. No specific reason was given why the team chose to only wear them once (each team is allowed to wear alternative jerseys in two games each season), many would say because of their garish, bumblebee-like design and color scheme.

The jerseys are modeled after the jerseys the Steelers wore in 1934 - their second season in existence.
