Week 9 NFL Review: When uniforms flop

My apologies for the delay on this. Time constraints call for me to keep this brief, but more will come next weekend.

The Buffalo Bills tried to rally their team and their fans with a white out at Ralph Wilson Stadium on Sunday. For anyone who watched the game, it’s very fair to say, it flopped.

There was more emotion from the fans at the start of the game given this extra boost from a special uniform worn against a division rival.

However, since this idea did not work out as planned in a blowout loss to the Jets, it is likely the Bills will stay away from white at home for a while. Uniform karma could likely come back to bit the Bills if they continue to try something that hasn’t worked in the past.

A Bill friend of mine hopes to never see these again, and I will say I hope the Bills can turn things around as this season holds the most promise in a long time for the franchise.

What’s Maryland wearing this week? Week 6

Maryland will go with this black-on-black-on-yellow look for a trip to Georgia Tech, who wears white at home.

The Terps will finally take their show on the road this week with a trip to undefeated Georgia Tech, but in an odd quirk, they will still be able avoid wearing a plain white road jersey.

The Yellow Jackets are one of only a few college teams (also LSU) to regularly wear white at home. This means Maryland is able to choose from more options for this week’s game, and their selection is very similar to their Week 3 look.

The yellow pants are just fine, and in fact it took me a few seconds to notice that was the difference between these uniforms and Week 3’s edition. It’s likely we won’t see a true road Maryland uniform until Oct. 22 when the Terps travel to Florida State.

We’ve already seen a white uniform (for a home game) and it wasn’t pretty, so here’s hoping they can come up with something better.
