Rare team matchups


Recommended Posts

https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/1976-grey-cup-cfl-canadian-football-442131593 - Going north of the border, but the third pic in this 1977 CFL yearbook featured a rare one-time matchup: The 1977 Toronto Argonauts changed their logo to a newer version of the "boat football" logo (which is still loved among fans of that team) and 1977 was the final year the BC Lions wore their black helmets with the older-style BC logo. They changed their logo the next year.

The Broncos have worn navy against the Saints only twice in the preseason ('98 & '01)...never in the regular season.

Have the Saints worn gold numerals on white jerseys against the Nike-fied Broncos any other time? I feel like probably not. I was surprised to see those as late as 1998.

 1998 was the last year of the Saints' gold numerals on their road whites.  They switched to black numerals for 1999 and modernized the Fleur-de-lis in 2000.

The Broncos played the NFC West in 1997, but the Saints were a 5th place team.

Denver's 1997 interconference schedule had them playing the other NFC West teams (STL, SF, CAR, ATL) and they missed out playing New Orleans when the Broncos had navy unis on white pants and the Saints had gold numbers on white road unis.

I see your 90's photo and I raise you Ravens @ 49ers November 17, 1996

That's also an interesting facemask being worn by Marquez Pope (#23). I don't think I recall ever seeing that QB-style mask with the "Deion bar" by the eyes.

Dallas Cowboys at Jacksonville Jaguars, September 10, 2006.  Only time the Cowboys have won blue against the Jags and also the only time Dallas has played in Jacksonville during the regular season.

Both teams look sharp here. A revamped full-body jag on the sleeve cap would do wonders for the Jaguars' current uniforms.

I always thought those old Jaguars white pants would be perfect for the Ravens' current unis. Just switch the teal with purple and they'd be so much better than what the Ravens have now.
