This upcoming Sunday, the Titans will visit the Rams and it will be a glorious uniform matchup. The Rams have decided to wear their 1999 throwbacks to commemorate their lone Super Bowl win against the Titans.
What a tremendous uniform opportunity! The Titans have essentially kept their uniform design since that season and the Rams’ decision to do this is a great back in time nostalgic uniform matchup. It will be great.
However, they won’t be exact. As you can see from the above video, the Rams wore their white jerseys and the Titans wore their navy jerseys. The Rams are set to wear their blue throwback jerseys, forcing the Titans to go with their white jerseys. It’s a shame that the Rams have no option to wear white since each NFL team is allowed three different jerseys per season. Had the Rams designated that third jersey as a white one, we’d have no problem. But they didn’t (as they are going to go throwback again later this season against the Buccaneers.)
The uniform matchup will be just like 1999. But not exactly. So close. Just like Dyson, so close, but not close enough. I still look forward to seeing this and feeling like it’s 1999 all over again.
