This season, the NFL is back with its annual “Color Rush” campaign. All 32 teams have a new alternate uniform that  they will showcase in one game this season.

These uniforms have been on display during the NFL’s “Thursday Night Football” games. These contests usually pit two divisional rivals against each other. For example, the first Color Rush Night of this year showcased the Jets and Bills, AFC East rivals. These games give fans the opportunity to, not only watch his/ her team claim some bragging rights are a divisional opponent, but look good while doing so.

You may be wondering to yourself; What’s the point? Well, Nike, one of the largest clothing companies in the world,  has always had a close relationship with sports, primarily football. Oregon University has been known for having the best uniforms college football has to offer. Through their partnership with Nike, Oregon has made itself into one of the premier college football programs in the country. It seems NFL teams have decided to embark on similar journeys to relevancy. The Tennessee Titans’ sky blue design, Seahawks neon green look and the Pittsburgh Steelers’ new black and gold uniform are all far cries from the traditional look of NFL uniforms.

Though many consider the Color Rush to be a new creation on behalf of the NFL, this is not a new phenomenon. In year’s past, there were a lot of different variations of uniforms. Throwback jerseys were implemented by certain teams to give fans a sense of nostalgia. Fans would see those vintage uniforms and immediately think of their past experiences with the game they love.

The NFL’s Color Rush has also been implemented in the league’s official video game. In Madden, players can play their friends, create themselves on their favorite teams and even play as and take on their favorite franchises. The new EA Sports’ NFL Madden 17 game has created new accessories gloves cleats and helmets, and also added all the Color Rush uniforms to this year’s installment of the game. Now, you can juke, stiff arm and score TDs in the end zone all while looking like a human highlighter.

In all, the NFL’s Color Rush is great concept and one I am to see
