CLEVELAND -- On Sunday, the Cleveland Browns will take the field at FirstEnergy Stadium for the final time this season in front of a sell-out crowd.

And when they do, they'll be donning what has become one of Cleveland's most popular sports jerseys in recent memory.

On Sunday, the Browns announced they'll be wearing their all-brown Color Rush uniforms when they host the Cincinnati Bengals in their FirstEnergy Stadium 2018 finale on Sunday. 

This will mark the third time this season the Browns have donned the alternate look, which they debuted against the New York Jets and wore once again while hosting the Baltimore Ravens.

Cleveland is currently undefeated in its Color Rush set.

Initially revealed in 2016 as a part of Nike's 'Color Rush' program, the Browns were unable to wear their new threads until this year when they hosted the Jets in primetime action. While their current standard uniforms have been polarizing since their debut in 2015, the Color Rush jerseys have been better received -- and difficult to find at the team's pro shop and area retailers.

The Browns also announced on Thursday that Sunday's matchup against the Bengals is sold out. In a video posted to Twitter, quarterback Baker Mayfield revealed the news while thanking Browns fans -- two weeks after calling them out for failing to fill FirstEnergy Stadium to capacity during their win over the Carolina Panthers.

"I just found out this Sunday's game is sold out," Mayfield said. "I appreciate you guys. I know I called you out. I thank you guys for buying all the tickets, being there for the support, I appreciate it a lot. I'm so excited to see you on Sunday. But it's not just about being there, you've got to be loud too. We want the energy there, we want it to be very exciting for the last home game, finishing off the season on the right note. And I appreciate you guys, thank you very much."
