^ They met again in 1986, but the Chargers had made the numbers on the navy jerseys white by then.

The 2015 Browns set met the 2013-17 Jaguars set just once, in 2017.

The 1986-1995 Saints set played the Panthers in Carolina's expansion season and both of their games that year had this specific uni matchup.

 

Saints overhauled their unis one year later.

Man I wish the Saints would go black/gold more often. It looks so much better than the all-black look.

Again, no game action pics, but these two uniform sets met just once in 1986 (last year for that Dolphins set, before they added the Dolphin logo on the sleeves, and the first year for that Saints set, w/ the Louisiana state insignia on the sleeves).

Some video for you of the match-up.

Not sure if it's been posted, and if I can find literally anything of higher quality I'll post it, but Islanders in their fishsticks-designed uniforms against the black-and-red Sabres.

 

 

Would've been even better to find the Gorton's crest Isles but it appears they may have been able to ditch the logo by the time the Sabres went black.

bVqTc1E.jpg - From 1973, which was also Johnny Unitas' last season. It was the first season of that Rams uniform, and the last for that Charger white-helmet look.

Here's a really rare uniform matchup.

This picture is from 6/15/05, which was the series finale of a 3-game series of MIL @ TB.  This series was the only time the Brewers in their current look ever played the Devil Rays in their green/black look.  TB never played at MIL during the 7 years that these uniforms overlapped so the home-away reverse of this is a "matchup that never happened," which I find kind of surprising, even with it being an interleague matchup.

 

Sidenote, Hideo Nomo pitched for the Devil Rays in this game and earned his 200th career victory, I guess I wasn't following the league closely that year because I definitely don't recall Hideo Nomo ever pitching for Tampa Bay.

 

 

 


Here's another thing I'm sure you've forgotten (because even Brewers fans barely remember that it happened).

Homecoming for Terry Porter.  And the best uniforms the Bucks ever wore.

The Green Bay Packers have only worn white once vs the Cowboys, 2007 week 13.

Oh, we remember. Big bounce back year with the Crew than off to Detroit for too much money.  Solid Uni though. Love the simple German M on the hat

I always thought they got rid of those unis way too soon. They've aged incredibly well, IMO. While the current unis have aged terribly.

 

But it's all a moot point when the 1982 fauxbacks are probably the best they've ever worn. And it's clearly what the fans prefer.

Aesthetically speaking, there were no survivors.

You know that tweet that goes viral every year around the Super Bowl showing “when the NFL stopped being fun” through the standardized logo? Yeah, this photo just screams Post-Fun NFL
