The Cincinnati Bengals revealed their all-white uniforms back in July, with the helmets receiving a lot of love from fans. While the team isn't wearing its white threads against the New York Jets in Week 4, the Bengals gave fans a sneak preview of their sick helmets during Friday's practice.

Fortunately, team insider Ben Baby was on the scene to photograph the white helmets in action. After taking a glance at the picture below, it'll be hard to deny that Cincinnati's new helmet might be the cleanest look in the NFL today.

Bengals White Helmets

Beginning in the 2012 season, the NFL made it so each of the 32 teams could only use one helmet. That rule was later rescinded in June 2021, opening up the door for teams to bring in alternate looks. The Bengals opted to use this chance to introduce their white helmets.

Unfortunately, fans will have to wait a few more days to see the helmets in a game. Cincinnati is set to debut their 'white out' look in Week 4's Thursday Night Football tilt against the Miami Dolphins, which will be a night highlighted by all-time Bengals greats Isaac Curtis and Willie Anderson being inducted into the organization's Ring of Honor.

The Bengals are 0-2 to begin the 2022 campaign, so time will tell if practicing with the white helmets brings them luck. The Jets are far from being a Super Bowl contender, however, they can't be underestimated after their Week 2 comeback victory against the Cleveland Browns.

Bengals vs Jets Odds

Things look promising for Cincinnati to win its first game of the year this week. FanDuel Sportsbook lists the Bengals as 6-point road favorites over the Jets with -114 odds to cover the spread less than 48 hours before kickoff.
