Color Rush: Here's what Ravens, Browns will be wearing on 'Thursday Night Football'

The NFL's season-long Color Rush craze will continue in Baltimore this week when the Browns play the Ravens on Thursday night. This Color Rush game might get a little confusing though, because the Browns won't be wearing Brown.

When the NFL originally unveiled each team's Color Rush jersey back in September, the Browns were shown wearing a brown-on-brown combination.

As lovely as that would be, that's not going to happen on Thursday. Instead, the Browns will be wearing same uniform they wore on in Week 9 against the Cowboys, which was all-white.

With only four days between the Cowboys game and the Ravens game, the Browns equipment team probably had a fun time trying to get the team's white jerseys cleaned in time for Thursday night.

Although the Browns will be wearing white, their brown uniform is still their official Color Rush uniform, which means fans are able to purchase it online.

Anyway, if the NFL keeps up the Color Rush trend in 2017, don't be surprised if the Browns finally get to go all-brown.

The reason the Browns couldn't go all-brown this year is because it was too close to the color that Baltimore will be wearing. The Ravens will be rocking an all-purple outfit for Thursday night's game.

This actually a brand-new uniform for the Ravens. The main difference between their purple Color Rush jerseys and their regular purple jerseys is that numbers are a different color. On the Color Rush jerseys, the numbers are gold, while on the regular jerseys, they're white.

The Ravens also usually wear black pants with their purple jerseys. For Thursday's game, they'll be going all-purple.

To see these uniforms in action, you'll need to tune-in to the NFL Network for the Browns-Ravens game on Thursday night (8:25 p.m. ET). You can check out our preview and prediction for the game by clicking here.

By the way, just in case you're wondering, the Color Rush craze will continue in Week 11 when the Panthers (Carolina blue) host the Saints (all-white).
