It is here! The Color Rush uniforms are unveiled. Some teams will not be wearing their designated Color Rush uniforms because of a color clash. Well that’s good planning, isn’t it? Here are some quick thoughts and notes.
Nothing new for Buffalo, that’s fine. The Jets will be playing the Bills so in reality, these green uniforms won’t return. With last year color blindness fiasco, this is the wise call.
The Patriots one looks real nice. It’s the template of their Pat the Patriot design but with their modern colors and number font. I like it. And the Dolphins’ current set lacked orange. This new set is all orange and I don’t mind it at all.
The Color Rush matchups are back for Thursday Night Football and the NFL has released images of the uniforms for the Buccaneers and Rams for next week’s matchup. It’s going to be a doozy of a condiment game as ketchup will face off against mustard for hot dog supremacy while being played on relish field.
We had known for a while that the Jaguars would be in all gold and the Titans would be in all blue for their Thursday Night Football matchup next week. There were leaks but now it’s official with the NFL’s announcement.
The rumor during the offseason was that the NFL wanted some color vs. color uniform matchups during Thursday Night Football. It wasn’t clear whether or not teams would wear new uniforms for this occasion or just have teams wear what they have in their rotation.
During a commercial on Thursday Night Football, we got our answer. Check out the above video.
The idea is either to help merchandise sales or make Thursday Night Football seem like a special event. Either way, it doesn’t need to happen but it’s here. Color vs. color is nice and I want to see more if it in the NFL. But their approach to this isn’t the best.
Let’s break each matchup down in the order these games will be played.
