Ranking the NFL's Color Rush Uniforms
The Dolphins lost twice Thursday night. The first was their actual football game to the Bengals, in which they could only muster a touchdown in a 22-7 loss. The second concerned their atrocious creamsicle uniforms, which were the subject of many Twitter jokes. So which NFL team has the best color rush uniform? Check out our ranking in the gallery below to see if you agree. (Click here for full-size version.)
All 32 2016 NFL color rush uniforms, ranked
#32 — Jacksonville Jaguars
These didn’t look good last year and they don’t look good this year.
#31 — Miami Dolphins
The offensive line is going to look like five traffic cones.
#30 — Los Angeles Rams
That’s too much yellow.
#29 — Washington Redskins
Thankfully, these ketchup and mustard kits won’t see the field this season.
#28 — Seattle Seahawks
Seattle clearly stole these from an arena football team.
#27 — New York Jets
The Jets won’t actually be wearing these this season, because of the red-green colorblindness issue.
#26 — San Francisco 49ers
These would look much better if the helmet matched.
#25 — Cleveland Browns
This might be the best possible combination of Browns uniform. Sadly, they won’t be wearing them because the Ravens are wearing a dark purple.
#24 — Indianapolis Colts
Have you ever wondered what Andrew Luck would look like as a Smurf?
#23 — Dallas Cowboys
This is another rehash from last season. Not a bad look.
#22 — Denver Broncos
The best part about these is the throwback helmet design.
#21 — Cincinnati Bengals
It’s weird seeing the Bengals in a color other than black or orange. Weird, but pretty refreshing.
#20 — Green Bay Packers
This is definitely better than an all-yellow uniform.
#19 — Philadelphia Eagles
Black and dark green is not a great combination.
#18 — Baltimore Ravens
Purple is tough to pull off, but the gold accents are pretty sweet.
#17 — Houston Texans
The Texans already have an all-blue combo, but this swaps the white numbers for red ones. They won’t wear them in 2016 because their color rush game is against the blue-clad Patriots.
#16 — Oakland Raiders
The silver numbers might be a challenge for fans in the cheap seats, and maybe even on TV.
#15 — Buffalo Bills
The only problem when the Bills wore these against the Jets last year was for color blind fans. Otherwise, these are pretty sharp.
#14 — Chicago Bears
This blue-on-blue combination makes a lot of sense.
#13 — Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The only people not happy with these are the ones who were hoping to see the creamsicles make a comeback.
#12 — Kansas City Chiefs
These aren’t all that different from their usual uniforms.
#11 — Arizona Cardinals
It would have been easy for the Cards to go with all red. This is much more creative, and pretty well executed.
#10 — San Diego Chargers
It’s a shame they didn’t got with powder blue, but these are still pretty nice.
#9 — New England Patriots
The old school stripes on the shoulder are a nice touch.
#8 — Tennessee Titans
The Titans have one of the best shades of blue in the league.
#7 — Minnesota Vikings
The best color rush jerseys are the ones with gold numbers.
#6 — Atlanta Falcons
The problem with the Falcons’ normal jerseys is the bit of white on the sleeves. This solves that.
#5 — Carolina Panthers
These looked pretty dope against the Cowboys on Thanksgiving last year.
#4 — Detroit Lions
There was a rumor that the Lions would wear red, but these make more sense.
#3 — New York Giants
The blue numbers are a nice throwback to the Lawrence Taylor era.
#2 — Pittsburgh Steelers
These are the uniforms the Steelers were always meant to wear.
#1 — New Orleans Saints
The gold accents are amazing.
Derrick Rose already finds the Triangle Offense "complicated" and "foreign."Phil Jackson scolded the team for not throwing the ball in the post. I wouldn't take so much joy in the Knicks' dysfunction had Rose not boasted so much about their potential over the summer.
