Buffalo Bills haven’t worn two specific uniform combinations yet
The Buffalo Bills uniform combinations are some of the best in all of the NFL.
Ever since moving away from the Marshawn Lynch and Trent Edwards-era uniforms (which were ghastly, let’s be real) the Buffalo Bills uniform combinations have been near the top of the league. However, there are two uniform combinations that I have not been able to find them wearing. It’s the red jersey on white pants, and the white jersey on red pants.
According to the Gridiron Uniform Database, their website has the entire Buffalo Bills uniform combinations, going back to the team’s very first season in the AFL. Neither combination exists on their site. An extensive run-through on UniWatch also did not bring up any results for these two sets.
So why has it taken so long to think about this combination? The red alternate was finally introduced in 2015, but there’s been no instance yet. Some may say that it looks too much like a Lousiana Tech/ SMU clone (featured below)
Minus the red helmet in this picture, it would be a great look for the current white helmet the Bills have. Matching the pants would make sure there isn’t an overload of red. The same goes for the white/white/red. The blue numbers and shoulder/sleeve stripes would prevent the team from looking like the Arizona Cardinals or even the New England Patriots (amazing) red throwback.
In a world where uniforms are getting more and more high tech in terms of their material, they still hold a lot of meaning to teams. An alternate jersey/ uniform can give you a little extra of Deion Sanders “Look good, feel good, play good”. While in the NFL that doesn’t always equate to much, it’s just great to see teams trying different things.
The only thing worse than a team with good uniforms is when they choose not to wear a certain combination for no reason.
