Rank the opponents that complement a particular team's uniform

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

What the title says. This is about your favorite sports uniform ranking of opponents who compliment that team's uniform. Who compliments that team best? How would you rank the opponents?

 

In 2017 two of my favorite uniforms (which I didn't think was likely to happen) were worn and played against each other. The Dallas Cowboys navy blue jersey and the Los Angeles Chargers powder blue jersey. I'm going to rank the opponents they played against.

 

Dallas Cowboys navy blue jersey 1996-present

 

1. Washington Redskins white jersey over burgundy pants

2. Philadelphia Eagles white jersey over midnight green pants

3. St. Louis Rams all white (2014)

4. Cleveland Browns all white (2008)

5. New Orleans Saints white jersey over gold pants 

6. Carolina Panthers white uniform

7. Houston Texans white jersey over deep steel blue pants 

8. San Diego Chargers white jersey over navy blue pants (2013)

9. New England Patriots white jersey over navy blue pants (2011)

10. Miami Dolphins white uniform (2007)

11. Oakland Raiders white jersey over silver pants (2013)

12. Tampa Bay Buccaneers white jersey over pewter pants (2003)

13. Cleveland Browns all white (2016)

14. Los Angeles Chargers powder blue (2017)

15. Tennessee Titans white jersey over navy blue pants (2014)

16. St. Louis Rams white jersey over navy blue pants (2008)

 

Los Angeles/San Diego Chargers powder blue jersey 2007-present

 

1. Kansas City Chiefs white jersey over red pants

2. Cincinnati Bengals all white

3. Denver Broncos white uniform

4. Baltimore Ravens all white

5. San Francisco 49ers white jersey over gold pants

6. Oakland Raiders white jersey over silver pants

7. New England Patriots white jersey over navy blue pants 

8. Indianapolis Colts white uniform

9. Dallas Cowboys navy blue jersey

 

I didn't include the Cowboys vs Giants match because that game had Dallas in white pants with their blue jersey. That matchup looks good but I prefer Dallas in the gray pants. Other teams I didn't have on the list because I didn't think much of them.

 

I don't really like the Chiefs uniform and I'm not a fan of their jerseys, but their white jersey and red pants combo compliments the Chargers powder blue jersey. The Bengals orange on the socks and shoulders look good. The Denver Broncos white uniform are sharp.

Image result for new york rangers vs boston bruins 2018

The New York Rangers home blues work really well against the Bruins road jerseys. It's very disappointing that the Rangers continue to wear drab navy alternates vs Boston...

Red & gold vs. silver & blue... and some of the greatest games of their era. Can't beat that.

Bills (red helmet, blue jersey, white pants) vs Dolphins (white jersey & aqua pants) in the early to mid 90's.

Other than that, Chargers vs Steelers in January '95:

TBH, I'd hope that a lot of opponents have nice things to say about my favorite teams' jerseys. :upside:

*Cowboys in white vs. Chiefs in red is a good one

 

*I agree with @neo_prankster that Dolphins-Bills back in the day was a good matchup, but I'll take it a step further and say it was good no matter who wore what, and still looks good today

 

*The Dolphins and Rams both complemented tons of opponents' looks back in the day but they are not nearly as good-looking today

For some reason, this combination works really well.

Second oldest after Cardinals/Bears.

 

Cardinals and Bears (then known as the Staleys) first met in 1920.  Cardinals and Packers first played in 1921.  Bears (Staleys) and Packers also first played in 1921.

Best looking matchup in the NFL:

Though the Chiefs have the best uniform in the NFL, so they look good against a lot of teams.

That's an interesting NOB font on those older Chiefs uniforms. I've never seen that before.

There is no Bears-Cardinals rivalry of any importance.

http://k1025.com/bears-packers-not-oldest-rivalry/


11/28/20 - 1st Cardinals-Bears/Staleys game
11/20/21 - 1st Cardinals-Packers game

11/27/21 - 1st Packers-Bears/Staleys game

 

Packers-Bears is certainly the most played, but it's not the oldest rivalry/series (however you want to look at it).
