The Pittsburgh Steelers’ 2018 season hangs in the balance, and their stiffest test of the regular season is quickly approaching in the form of the New England Patriots in Week 15. After losing their past three games, the Steelers are pulling out all the stops for this huge AFC showdown.
That’s right, they are going to wear their all black ‘Color Rush’ uniforms for the big game.

If that doesn’t make you want to run through a wall, I’m not sure what will, but the Steelers are putting their perfect 3-0 record in these alternate uniforms to the ultimate test.
The first time the team wore these uniforms was during the ‘Immaculate Extension’ game vs. the Baltimore Ravens. The following year the Steelers dismantled the Tennessee Titans while wearing the all black threads, and earlier this year they dominated the Carolina Panthers on Thursday Night Football.
This decision was not made public until Saturday night, and needless to say, the fan base is excited. Do jerseys actually make a difference? Most would say no, but there has always been something about alternate uniforms with the Steelers. Whether it was the gold helmet throwbacks, or the ever-famous bumblebee uniforms, the Steelers had a winning record in every alternate/throwback under Mike Tomlin.
Let’s hope they stay perfect in the ‘Color Rush’ jerseys in Week 15.
