Sorry for the delay, folks.
ATL in white/white, ARZ in
red/white. Nope, not one of my favorite matchups. Red and black
fulfills both teams' colro schemes. Falcons in their rather mundane
white and white unis, with the Cardinals in equally run of the mill red
and white kits, with black trim.
MIA in white/white, NE in
navy/silver. All that white on the Dolphin side of the field against
silver, navy and a touch of red on the Patriots slice of the gridiron.
Not that much of an eye-please from these lens shielded peepers.
DAL in white/mint, DET in honolulu
blue/silver. Shades of blue and gray at play. Not much can be done
when these two meet, so you have to grin and roll with it. Again,
normally good looks separately, but together, they are a little
NYJ in white/white, CIN in black/black.
Yet again, the Jets go with what may well be my least favorite get-up
of all, the white from head to toe, and the Bengals, rocking all black.
The orange lids and trim of the Bengals and the slight touches of green
save this from a gagger. Not by much, though.
SEA in white/white, STL in navy.navy. Can't really find fault with the
Rams gear, but I am a tad disappoined that the Seahawks used all white.
Should have sported the gray pants. That would have made a sparkling
matchup. Even the navy pants would have been a slight improvement from
this get together.
PIT in white/yellow, OAK in
black/silver. Not much has changed in the looks of these two when they
were playing for the right to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl back
in the 70's. Both teams with healthy doses of black, with healthy
heapings of silver and yellow. Not wild variances, to be sure, but
these are colors that instantly identify these two.
SF in white/gold, JAX in black/black.
Another London affair, and the Jaguars roll with all black, except for
that gold (mostly) helmet. A rather bizarre pairing, what with the
Niners rather mundane gold-white-gold-red suit and the very 21st century
schizoid Jags togs. Somehow, it works. It avoids the pitfalls of dull
NYG in white/gray, PHI in green/white.
Very traditional look from these two, if a little contemporary. Well
blended palette of blue, red, gray and green with a slap of black. You
know what you're getting, but you're not that disappointed, either.
CLE in white/white, KC in red/white.
Not too thrilling a look here. Red, orange, brown and yellow. More of
the "warm" colors, or really, a nice autumnal batch of colors all mixed
in here. It is good, but don't excite these senses.
CAR in white/white, TB in red/pewter. The Bucs go for the red for the night game with the Panthers, who rock their all whites. It is a nice matchup, with the reds bleding well against the black and carolina blue accessorized Carolinians.
GB in white/yellow, MIN in
purple/purple. Packers always look good. The Vikes seldom look this
good. Welch's used to claim to serve 100% grape juice. Well then this
is 97% grape juice. Again, if you have a dark jersey and dark pants on
the hangar, then I think you should pair them up once or twice a year.
Really a distinctive and tasty matchup.
BUF in white/blue, NO in black/gold. The best possible combo matchup between these two. It makes for a great matchup. Blue, black, gold, and a touch of red. Really sharp contrasting colors.
WSH in white/yellow, DEN in orange/white. This is what I like in a uni matchup. Triple combos (white/yellow/burgundy and orange/white/navy) and boy, it does stand out. Variance of colors - unique colors - well placed and real eye candy for uni geeks like me. Can't get much better!
Back atcha next week!!
