The best thing in sports is winning. The second best? New uniforms.
New threads symbolize a new beginning while paying homage to the franchise’s history. 4 out of the 5 teams that got new uniforms didn’t make the post season in 2019 and getting new uniforms is a great way to forget an unsuccessful season (or a loss to a 6 seed at home in the playoffs). 5 teams from the NFL have upgraded their uniforms during the 2020 offseason and you know its only right that we rank them. Let’s go.
5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Bucs made a big splash in free agency this off-season, acquiring Tom Brady, and the followed that by premiering their new uniforms. Tough to make pewter look good, but if any one can, it’s Tom Brady.
Bucs get the #5 spot.
4. New England Patriots
The Patriots are used to winning. Super Bowl after Super Bowl, AFC East crown after AFC East Crown the Patriots aren’t going to like their #4 spot, but they didn’t really change much. Kind of looks like their color rush uni’s on steroids. Can’t imagine Bill B. is too stoked about these.
3. Atlanta Falcons
The Hotlanta Falcons come in at #3 here. A+ for effort and A+ for pettiness. The Falcons “leaked” their new uniforms a few hours after their in-division rival, Tampa Bay, unveiled their highly anticipated uniform upgrade. Love the gradient and chrome upgrades. HOT.
2. Cleveland Browns
I’m a sucker for tradition. The Browns revert back to their old ways and these classics are just that, classic. My favorite here has to be the brown top with white pants. Baker, Odell, Chubb, Jarvis and a top 10 draft pick? It’s definitely a new era for the Cleveland Browns.
1. Los Angeles Chargers
LA is the home of reigning NL and AL MVP’s, Cody Bellinger and Mike Trout, but the Chargers provided us with home run of a uniform upgrade. The powder blue is a no-doubt top 5 color in the sports world and the all navy is going to be a new favorite for LA fans for many years to to come. Kudos to the Chargers here, If I had to rank these uniforms among themselves I’d say:
2. All navy
4. All white
6. Royal color rush
That only competition here is among which of the Chargers uniforms are best, but when it comes to the other 4 teams, the Chargers won this race by a mile.
