Not a fan of the Bills' field design this year. Looked better with the helmet at the 50 yard line and the red end zones years ago.

 

Yeah I definitely see what you're talking about with the Eagles end zone. Hope they correct that soon.

 

Also, this wasn't the first time the Jets didn't have a painted end zone. I'm pretty sure the Giants and Jets both used the green of the field surface at the old Meadowlands back in the early to mid 2000's.

 

I think the Jets and Giants both had non-painted endzones from early 2000's through the end of their time at old Giants stadium. The Giants did not have fully painted endzones in the '08 playoffs, I do know that: http://gridiron-uniforms.com/fields/controller/controller.php?action=view-single-field&title=NYG_2008^div&image_path=/fields/images/playoffs/2008/r1024/NYG_2008^div.png

 

I think it would be nice to see the Bills at least go back to a red endzone. I know it's not as big a part in their color scheme anymore, but it would certainly contrast well with the oversized Bills logo at midfield.

Some of the updated fields for 2019 as of week 1:

 

Cleveland Browns

Jacksonville Jaguars

New York Jets

One thing I'm surprised about with the Jets, is that they down have the sewn in endzones, like they had since moving to MetLife, and like the Giants have. Maybe that will be coming soon or next year?

And the Philadelphia Eagles "Error" Field

And I'm currently working on an update for the Raiders football over baseball field dating back to at least 2012

An update to the Raiders shared with baseball field:

 

Old version:

New Version:

Updates - Changed the grass shading to accurately reflect what's seen on the field during the baseball season. Updated the infield dirt color. Included the foul line, and first and third base line coaches boxes.

Well, that was the end of an era yesterday. That was the final NFL game in the foreseeable future, to be played on a dirt baseball infield.

Changes for Week 2:

Miami had the biggest changes, rolling out a new endzone pattern. I'm still working on this one, and will probably only get to it at the end of the week.

 

Tennessee

New coloring scheme in the wordmark, using columbia blue instead of silver. No other logos in the corners of each endzone (last year was the 20th season logo). Finally, no two point conversion line! Most likely a mistake, but we will see if they add it for future games or not.

Pittsburgh

Addition of NFL 100 logos in either endzone.

Baltimore

Return of the shield logo at midfield. This version of the logo spans only 10 yards compared to the 14 yards the shield logo spanned back when Baltimore was playing on an artificial surface.

Los Angeles

Similar field to last year when wearing the white uniforms. The NFL 100 logo replaced the normal NFL logo. The other big change is the size of the helmet logo at midfield. Last years helmet was about 13 yards wide, as compared to nearly 10 yards this year.

New York

The Jets went with all black endzones to match their uniforms, and to allude to their prospects of a winning season being a dark abyss.

Looking forward to week 3 ...

 

The chiefs are going with an old school style field, the likes of which we haven't seen since 1971

An example of a field from 1971:

From 1969 to 1971 the Chiefs used dueling helmets at midfield. More Chiefs field history here:

Given that the Chiefs field manager was also in charge of the Super Bowl field, the dueling helmets found their way to the Super Bowl fields in this era for Super Bowls II and IV.

I think this is going to look pretty cool.  However, it doesn't look like there will be dueling helmets at midfield.  The stencil outline looks like a Chiefs helmet on the 50 yard line, with either an old school double bar facemask or one of these.

Here's another fun one. I thought something was off with the Eagles wordmark yesterday ... take a look at the 'G' from the left endzone:

After seeing this (which is very cool)...now I'm hoping the Chiefs paint the endzones red for one game this year with the yellow wordmark, 80s/90s style.
