The NFL has revealed the “Color Rush” jerseys for the 2016 NFL season and the uniforms have drawn mixed reviews.
The Dolphins will be sporting an all-orange uniform during their Thursday night matchup Sept. 29 with the Cincinnati Bengals, who will be dressed in all white. Miami’s uniform features white numbers and lettering and a white stripe down the side of the pants. The lettering, numbers and stripes are outlined in aqua, and the Dolphins will be wearing their regular helmets.
The look will signify the return of the team’s orange jersey tops, a fashion trend the Dolphins experimented with in 2004. The difference between the 2004 unis and the new version is that in 2004 the pants were white.
Until they’re seen on the field, it will be hard to gauge just how memorable the Dolphins’ “Color Rush” jerseys will be.
Despite the bright orange, the Dolphins’ uniforms are far from the flashiest or brightest of the bunch. Several teams like the Seahawks (flourescent green), Vikings (purple), Rams (yellow) and Titans (blue) take the cake in those categories.
Hopefully, this year, colorblind people can enjoy the Color Rush games as well, an issue that the NFL has worked to fix this time around.
