DNAsports’ Weekly NFL Uniform Matchup Fixin’s (Week 6 Posted)

Recommended Posts

Brought on by a few posts in other threads, I’ve decided to use Madden 20 and correct weekly miscues by teams in their matchups. However, there will be matchups I deem unchangeable. Really the only two rules I have for myself is I have to use current uniforms from all 32 teams and one set uniform can’t dominate the whole schedule. For example, I can’t use pre-Reebok disaster Falcons/Cardinals/etc uniforms and the Rams can strictly be royal blue and gold. Here we go:

 

Chiefs @ Jaguars 

Be gone with the all white for Jacksonville

Titans @ Browns

Cleveland’s Color Rush/New Primary uniforms are horrible and you can’t change my mind

Ravens @ Dolphins

White at home is forbidden in this land

spacer.png

 

Redskins @ Eagles

Washington gets a new primary helmet, pretty much become the other Chiefs

Bengals @ Seahawks

Just a sock change for Cincy

49ers @ Buccaneers 

Somehow convinced myself that both teams wearing red socks looks good

Giants @ Cowboys

Sorry Dallas, you’re not getting away with white at home this year.

Texans @ Saints

New Orleans’ throwbacks become the primary home uniforms

Unaltered matchups:

Packers @ Bears

Falcons @ Vikings

Bills @ Jets

Rams @ Panthers

Colts @ Chargers

Lions @ Cardinals

Steelers @ Patriots 

Broncos @ Raiders

 

Real-Life Matchup comparison will follow.

Had the opportunity to put the Seahawks in gray pants and didn't?  Weird.

They’ll get to that point. I even toyed with the idea of putting Seattle in green socks.

Interesting idea. I like it! 

 

I support the "no white at home" rule you're implementing. While I'm not against white at home per se, it does pose the problem of having one uniform dominate the schedule, as you have mentioned. Also, Dallas' in navy is a far superior look, in my opinion. So this is a nice change of pace. That being said, I love the fixed Giants/Cowboys matchup. I wish New York would switch back to those uniforms full time.

 

Other notes: 

  • That Chiefs/Jaguars fix makes the game look 10x better
  • The Saints throwback is the right call for the primary home. Why they continue to force black/black at home is beyond me. The gold pants are clearly superior
  • I like the grey facemask for Washington
  • Seattle should use the grey pants as mentioned above
  • I like Cleveland's CR uniforms over the Nike-ified update. Pair them against the Titans in all white and the game becomes much more palatable.

If I were doing this, that would be step one every week. Put Seahawks in gray pants... Automatic.

I was thinking that in my head. Seattle really does look 100x better in strictly gray pants. Slip in blue once or twice a year, but overall gray pants is the way to go.

So, I just realized I goofed and allowed Carolina to wear WAH against the Rams, but I can’t bring myself to change what a beautiful matchup it was:

Also while on the subject of the Rams and WAH, Week 2 Rams-Saints is definitely getting it’s fair share of fixin’s. However, I’m not sure if I should put the Saints in all white CR w/ throwback socks or white CR jersey/throwback pants & socks against the Rams home look above.

That. The Throwback and that combination should be what the Saints wear to the end of time, with maybe a White/White or Black/White game once in a while.

NFL Uniform Matchup Fixin’s Week 2

 

Tampa Bay @ Carolina

Yeah... Panthers, never do that thing again.

spacer.png

 

Arizona @ Baltimore

This one took a few tries. Ravens get a “new” Color Rush 

spacer.png

 

Indianapolis @ Tennessee

Take what you can get, I suppose.

spacer.png

 

San Francisco @ Cincinnati

I really liked the all black look for the Bengals, but I felt like Cincy needed just a bit more orange.

spacer.png

 

Jacksonville @ Houston

Time for Houston to own the red in a division where blue is king. Say hello to the Texans new primary home jersey.

spacer.png

 

Dallas @ Washington

The normal white uniform for Dallas is being thrown into the dumpster and set ablaze. The Cowboys new away uniform is here.

spacer.png

 

Seattle @ Pittsburgh

Oh, but those gray pants do look mighty fine.

spacer.png

 

Buffalo @ NY Giants

Only changes out of this matchup compared to the real one are the new primary helmet and pants for the Giants.

spacer.png

 

New England @ Miami 

Poor Dolphins, you’re not getting massacred in your beautiful throwbacks this week.

spacer.png

 

New Orleans @ LA Rams

Listen, when you’ve got a chance to create an incredibly classic looking game, you take the ram by the horns

spacer.png

 

Philadelphia @ Atlanta
Not much you can do with this game except rid it of white pants vs white pants.

spacer.png

 

Cleveland @ NY Jets

New York’s all black alternates get a break in action with green socks while Cleveland dons orange pants and brown socks.

spacer.png

 

Games too good for Fixin’s:

LA Chargers @ Detroit

Minnesota @ Green Bay

Kansas City @ Oakland 

Chicago @ Denver

This is a cool idea for a thread, I’ll definitely be following it as the season goes on!

 

If that Saints-Rams matchup happened in real life, it’d automatically be matchup of the year in my book.

Request: can you never have any socks and Pants be the same color? It just always looks bad.

IMO, the white striped away socks just don’t fit in with the rest of the uniform. You don’t see the same stripes anywhere else on the uniform. Yes it helps avoid the leotard look, but the white socks would look a whole lot better with 1) one solid blue stripe to match the jersey stripe or 2) blue/red/blue stripe. The entire Patriots uniform is a striping hot mess. Pun intended. They’ll be used in the future, likely in tandem with the CR jersey, but for now, New England will rock the leotard.

I’m actually disagreeing with you on a few points, whatever uniform you chose for Dallas looks really bad, I much much prefer their current whites. I also don’t like grey for Seattle or al purple for Baltimore. And while I don’t mind that Carolina look, the black was better. I would also say that the Giants change is unnecessary and a slight downgrade. 

On the other hand, Houston v Jacksonville and Los Angeles v New Orleans look gorgeous

I personally think the Jets in green pants, black socks would work better than black pants, green socks...

 

Great idea for a thread! I'll be following along as the season goes on.

Should have Week 3 up sometime between tonight and Wednesday. One matchup I’m stuck on is Detroit-Philadelphia. Particularly Detroit. Loved the blue pants, didn’t like the blue socks that came with the look. My question is, which of these four looks better for the matchup?
