FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. – It’s not often an NFL team wears three different uniforms in three straight home games, but that’s exactly what the Falcons about to do come Thursday night.
Nov. 26 vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Against the Buccaneers, players donned the retro black jerseys, white pants and went retro with the logo on the helmet. Some say the black jerseys are cursed, but a 34-20 win over their division rivals puts the Falcons’ record at 2-2 and wipes out that notion. Besides, how can uniforms that look this good be cursed?
Dec. 3 vs. Minnesota Vikings
This past Sunday, the Falcons went back to their standard home uniforms – red jerseys, white pants and the modern-looking Falcons logo on the helmets. While the Falcons came up short in a low-scoring slugfest against the Vikings, they at least looked good.
Dec. 7 vs. New Orleans Saints
On Thursday night in a nationally televised game against the rival Saints, the Falcons will finally suit up and play their first game in the all-red Color Rush uniforms. In case you’re wondering, Atlanta did not have an opportunity to wear its alternate all-red look last season on "Thursday Night Football." Well, the long wait is about to end.
