Broncos get nostalgic with new Color Rush uniforms

ENGLEWOOD - The Denver Broncos are taking the "United in Orange" thing to a new level with this year's Color Rush uniforms.

 

 

 

Reminiscent of the team's look from 1968 to 1996, they'll be decked out in head to toe orange (yes, we even mean orange shoes), with blue and white striping on the sleeves, and large white numbers.

Although the players will be wearing the same helmets, they will look a little different as the current logo will be replaced with the iconic "D" horse logo.

 

 

The special design will be worn during the Thursday Night Football game against San Diego on October 13. The Chargers will also be wearing Color Rush uniforms during the game. 

Jerseys, shirts, hats and more in the Color Rush design are available for purchase through the Denver Broncos. All proceeds for these specialty products go toward the NFL Foundation, which helps to fund health, safety and wellness programs for youth. This year, the first $500,000 raised is helping to purchase and repair youth and high school football equipment and fields damaged in the Louisiana floods.

This year all 32 NFL teams have a Color Rush uniform, and all but six will wear them during Thursday Night Football. This is because some of the teams playing each other had contrasting colors so the away team will just wear their normal uniforms to avoid confusion, and because a few teams' only Thursday Night Football game is on Thanksgiving when Color Rush uniforms will not be worn.
