After two years of wearing their Color Rush uniforms on the road — in San Diego in 2016 and in Indianapolis in 2017 — the Broncos will don the emphatically orange uniform in front of their home crowd during a Week 12 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The team made it a point to give their fans the opportunity to see the Color Rush uniforms at home in 2018.
For the first time, teams are able to wear their Color Rush uniforms during any game of their choosing. Previously, the uniforms were reserved for "Thursday Night Football" matchups.
The Broncos last wore the uniforms — which include orange shoes, orange socks, orange pants, orange jerseys and blue helmets featuring Denver's old logo — in a Week 15 game in Indianapolis in 2017. Denver came away with a 25-13 win in that contest.
Denver will also wear its alternate uniforms on two occasions in 2018.
The team will wear its blue jerseys — with either white or blue pants — in Week 4 against the Kansas City Chiefs and in Week 15 against the Cleveland Browns.
Both games will be played at home.
