The home team chooses what jerseys they want to wear. In this game, the Ravens chose their away, white, jerseys because it was a hot sunny day and they thought it would be an advantage having the Steelers wear all black.

Yeah i always thought it was league policy to wear white on away games, black at home.
On the exception unless its a SB game......depending on whos the home team there!

Nope, the league policy is that the home team decides. Teams like the Cards (prior to their new digs), Cowboys, Dolphins, Jags, Bucs that play in the more hot weather climates have tended to wear their whites at home early in the season. You normally don't see AFC North team pull that one. I think more than anything, they did it because those were the jerseys they wore during the matchup with the Steelers in the playoffs last year.

I love the black jerseys but the hot weather teams do this to the Steelers every single time. I don't think the jerseys had much to do with the crap we saw on the field, but they certainly didn't help matters when players were openly gassed in the second half. I guess they figured they didn't have to work out to get in shape during the offseason because they were in the Super Bowl last year. I hope that is the last of the Super Bowl hangover or this is going to be one crappy season.
