The Pittsburgh Steelers are making this a habit.
An approaching Week 15 game where the team decides to wear their Nike Color Rush uniforms for the second time that season. Last year the team decided to wear their alternative uniforms vs. the Patriots in Week 15, a game they won, and this year they have made the decisions again with the Buffalo Bills looming on Sunday Night Football.
The Steelers have never lost a game in these uniforms, and are hoping this streak continues at Heinz Field this Sunday night. Earlier this year the Steelers donned the all black jerseys in a win over the Miami Dolphins on Monday Night Football.
Can the luck of the Color Rush uniforms continue? That has yet to be seen, but the Steelers fan base certainly was in favor of bringing back the alternate uniforms when I asked the question on the BTSC Twitter feed yesterday:
The Steelers, 8-5, will host the Bills, 9-4, in a critical game when it comes to the AFC Playoff Picture. A win over Buffalo Sunday will catapult the Steelers ahead of them to the 5th spot in the playoff standings. However, a loss would be a crippling blow to the Steelers’ overall playoff hopes, making them start to rely on outside help to make the postseason dance.
Either way, Heinz Field will be rocking on Sunday night with the uniforms and the fans realizing how close their favorite team is to tasting those sweet playoffs once again. Stay tuned to BTSC for the latest news and notes surrounding the black-and-gold as they prepare for Sunday Night Football in Week 15.
