They may not be the everyday jerseys we are accustomed to on Sundays, but alternate uniforms have been known to steal our hearts every now and then in the NFL. The Bears recently revealed their new orange uniforms, and they took us right down memory lane. Now, it’s time to count down our favorites.
Here are the seven best alternate jerseys in football.
There’s nothing that really jumps off the page, but it’s certainly a great alternate out of Arizona. They’re known for their red, but the simple accents while letting black dominate makes this an easy addition to the list. Plus, you can’t go wrong with white helmets in contrast.
Plenty of fans may make fun of color rush, but these jerseys are awesome. How can you go against the baby blues here? It’s hard to rock one color and have it look good, but the Panthers certainly achieved that with this design.
If you don’t like throwback uniforms, leave this page. You’re not the kind of person we want to be friends with. The Dolphins are known to trot out some ugly uniforms, as seafoam green isn’t the most popular color on planet earth, but this jersey is a breath of fresh air. Just let yourself enjoy it.
These red jerseys are easily among the best in the entire league. If the bold color isn’t enough, these particular getups are known in Houston as “Battle Red.” That name alone is enough of a reason to add them to this list.
The Eagles pretty much have everything going right for them these days. They have a phenomenal head coach, a ridiculous defense, have a future MVP at quarterback, are just coming off the Super Bowl, and have these fire alternates. Everything’s coming up Philly.
This is a tribute to the team’s proud past, and is certainly accepted by the masses. Just think back to the Greatest Show on Turf. Mixing yellow with anything is no simple task, but these throwbacks are awesome. You may think other jerseys behind this are better, but the horns on the helmet alone catapult them this high. Classic.
You are a crazy person if you thought there was going to be any other jersey at the top. The Los Angeles Chargers’ iconic powder blue uniforms aren’t just the best alternates in football, they might be the best jerseys in sports. Plain and simple.
