We’ve known for a while now that the Pittsburgh Steelers plan to wear two alternate uniforms during their 2019 regular season and on Monday it was revealed exactly when each will be worn.
According to Tuesday news release from the Steelers, the team will wear their all-black with gold trim Color Rush jerseys when they host the Miami Dolphins on Oct. 28 on Monday Night Football. Additionally, the Steelers also announced on Tuesday that the team will wear their 70s Throwback jerseys when they host the Los Angeles Rams on Nov. 10, which will also be Alumni Weekend.
Last season the Steelers wore their Color Rush uniforms in their Week 10 Thursday night home game win over the Carolina Panthers and again in their Week 15 home win over the New England Patriots. Additionally, the Steelers wore those same monochromatic uniforms with gold numbers during their 2017 home game win over the Tennessee Titans. In 2016, the Steelers also wore the same Color Rush uniforms in their Christmas night home game win against the Baltimore Ravens.
As for the Steelers 70s Throwback jerseys, they were debuted last season in the Steelers home game win against the Cleveland Browns. The throwbacks are from the 1978 season and they were used last season to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the team’s Super Bowl XIII win over the Dallas Cowboys for the team’s third Lombardi trophy. This year the Steelers are celebrating the 40th anniversary of their Super Bowl XIV win over the Los Angeles Rams by wearing those same throwback jerseys at home against the Rams.
