When the Denver Broncos host the Detroit Lions this Sunday, the club will be wearing their alternate orange jerseys for the third and final time this year.
Starting next season, the Broncos will make their alternate orange uniforms their primary home jersey color. The team will wear orange in six of their regular season home games in 2012 and blue will become the alternate color for the other two games.
Orange was the team’s primary color from the 1962 through 1996 seasons. When the team changed colors in 1997, the team won Super Bowl XXXII.
The Broncos are asking fans planning to attend the game to come in orange. Fox’s Dick Stockton (play-by-play) and former Broncos safety John Lynch (color commentary) will call the game with Jaime Maggio reporting from the sidelines.
Denver owns a 6-4 all-time record against Detroit in the regular-season, including a 3-1 mark at home. The two teams haven’t faced each other since 2007, when the Lions embarrassed the Broncos in Detroit (44-7).
Orange and Blue, Baby! Game day is just four days away. See you on Orange Sunday!
