Ravens' season gets uglier with gold pants against Chiefs

BALTIMORE -- Just when you thought the Baltimore Ravens' season couldn't get uglier, the team revealed Sunday the Ravens will wear gold pants for the first time in the 20-year franchise history.

Yes, gold pants.

It's actually more mustard than gold, which is a secondary color for the Ravens. To make matters worse, there is a purple stripe running down the side with a gold "B" on the hip.

While I'm far from a fashion expert, the Ravens will play the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday with the unusual color combination of black helmet, purple jersey and gold pants. This makes those Thursday night "Color Rush" uniforms look appealing.

The Ravens (4-9) are in the midst of one of the worst seasons in franchise history. You can blame that on significant injuries, questionable officiating calls and poor play in the secondary.

But who's to blame for signing off on the gold pants?
