↑"Raiders "Color Rush" Jerseys Celebrate 1970 Team". NFL Enterprises, LLC. October 19, 2017. Retrieved April 30, 2019. As Thursday Night Football features the National Football League's "Color Rush" initiative, the Raiders will participate by wearing throwback uniforms that celebrate the club's 1970 team. The throwbacks are one of only two notable variations of the iconic Raiders uniform since Al Davis revitalized the brand as the team's new Head Coach and General Manager in 1963. After changing the team colors from black and gold to the now legendary Silver and Black, Davis refined the pirate and shield logo that has appeared on the team's helmet, unchanged, since 1964.
