Browns to Wear Orange for First Time this Season
For the first time this season, the Cleveland Browns will wear their alternate orange jerseys as the play the New York Jets, and honor the 1986 Browns team that made it to the AFC Championship game by beating the Jets in 2OT. Along with that, the team will also be celebrating the return of Josh McCown as their starting quarterback after missing the past five games.
When the team introduced their new uniforms before last season, it finally brought back the orange alternates that the team had not had carried since the 2004 season. The team announced it through their Twitter account on Friday, also showing that the endzone would be spray-painted orange as well.
Last year, the team wore the “construction barrel” uniforms twice, losing both outings to the Cardinals and the 49ers, so they will be hoping to better that mark as they go up against a Jets team led by a shaky Ryan Fitzpatrick at quarterback.
