4 Most Noticeable NFL Uniform Changes

The NFL has always been notoriously strict when it comes to teams' uniforms and gear. 


For a few seasons, the league had a two-uniform rule that only allowed an alternate to be worn twice a year. While those rules are somewhat strict, they have eased up more recently with the NFL now letting teams wear alternates three times a year with color rush -- not just a Thursday special. 


As far as specific team changes go, there are a quite a few minor ones to note. Most of the changes this year are patches honoring an anniversary of a team, or in memorial of an owner. One cool addition is that the Walter Peyton Man of the Year winners get special patches. But there are some other team uniform changes that are noticeable, here are four of them.

1. New Jaguars Helmets

This may be the most welcome change of the season, as those multi-colored Jaguars helmets were easily the worst in the NFL. It's good to see them return to a more palatable helmet, even if they did tone down their entire jersey as well. 

2. Rams Blue and Gold is Back

The Rams blue and gold jerseys are some of the best in the NFL, so it's great to see them finally making a return once again. The white jerseys are fine, and it's good they toned down the gold in them since the horns are white, but the blue and gold will always be the best look for the Rams. 

3. Orange Bears Jerseys

The Bears are retiring their Monsters of the Midway jerseys in favor of these bright orange alternates they'll wear three times in 2018. They used to wear these alternates from 2005-2011, and it's nice to see this sharp look back in The Windy City. 

4. New Titans Helmets

Finally, we have a second new helmet design in the AFC South. The Titans helmets were always okay (just a normal white with the logo), but the new navy helmets look very clean, especially with the darker jerseys. The AFC South has gotten a lot more stylish.
