ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — On three occasions in 2019, the Broncos will trade their orange jerseys for alternate threads.
Denver will wear its navy jerseys in Week 6 against the Titans and in Week 13 against the Chargers. The Broncos will wear their all-orange Color Rush jerseys in Week 16 against the Lions.
All three games will be played at home.
Denver wore their navy jerseys twice at home last season: against the Chiefs on “Monday Night Football” and in a late-season, prime-time matchup against the Browns.
The Broncos have not yet announced which color pants they will wear with their blue jerseys for either of this year’s matchups.
The Broncos have worn their Color Rush uniforms once over each of the last three seasons. Their home win over the Steelers last season in the Color Rush jerseys was their first time wearing the all-orange combo at home. They are 2-1 all-time in their Color Rush jerseys.
The Broncos’ Week 6 game against the Titans will already feature plenty of festivities.
In addition to being the team’s “Fantennial Weekend” game, the contest will serve as an opportunity to recognize some of the franchise’s best. Champ Bailey will be inducted into the team’s Ring of Fame, and Pro Football Hall of Fame President & CEO David Baker will also be in attendance to present the Hall of Fame Rings of Excellence for Bailey and Pat Bowlen.
The Broncos’ navy jerseys were relegated to their current alternate status when Denver adopted an orange jersey as its new primary home look in 2012.
Since the change, though, the Broncos have enjoyed several memorable moments in the navy ensemble.
Peyton Manning broke Brett Favre's all-time record for touchdown passes wearing a navy jersey in 2014, and the Broncos put together a dominant performance against the previously undefeated Packers in 2015 in their navy threads.
The Broncos will look to add to that history in 2019.
