The Minnesota Vikings may have to wear some of the “Color Rush” jerseys made infamous during Thursday Night Football’s 2015 NFL season broadcasts.
Football fans will remember the interesting new jerseys that were worn by NFL teams during Thursday Night Football’s 2015 season. The uniforms were sometimes ugly, mostly hideous, and sometimes hard to tell apart for the color blind fans.
After the tremendous amount of jokes made about the ketchup vs mustard game (Buccaneers vs Rams), the “everyone looks the same” game (Jets vs Bills), and some of the other horrible combinations presented by the NFL, the league wants to take another stab at trying to sell the new jerseys by continuing the Color Rush format for the 2016 NFL season.
That announcement was made by Detroit Lions GM Rod Wood in an interview on the Detroit Free Press website.
Wood said that his team will find out about whether or not the Detroit Lions will have a normal Thursday Night Football game or if they will play on Thanksgiving Day.
"“All teams that play on Thursday this year will wear a Color Rush uniform,” he said. “The roll out of the Color Rush uniforms for all teams will occur when they announce the schedule.”"
The current rumor going around is that the Minnesota Vikings will be the team visiting Detroit for the Thanksgiving Day game, but until the actual 2016 NFL schedule is released, it is unknown as to whether or not that will be Minnesota’s Thursday Night Football game.
Since every team plays on Thursday Night Football, the Minnesota Vikings will be seeing some action on that day of the week at least once during the 2016 NFL season. However, it will be interesting to see what color the team goes with for their Color Rush jerseys and what the design of the uniforms will be.
