Buffalo Bills are set to wear one of their more popular uniform combinations in Week 15 against the Carolina Panthers
The Buffalo Bills are entering a must-win game against the Carolina Panthers and will be looking a little different when they take the field in Highmark Stadium. The team announced that this week the Bills will be wearing their all-red alternate uniforms for this game.
This uniform combination is usually highly-anticipated and over the summer Aaron Tully made his prediction of when the Bills would wear these uniforms. He correctly named this week’s game as the most likely that Buffalo would wear them.
The all-red Color Rush uniforms were first used in 2015 during a Thursday Night Football game against the New York Jets. This game drew headlines as it was tough for people who are color-blind to distinguish between the two teams.
Buffalo Bills have had success in the all-red uniforms
The Buffalo Bills are looking to end a two-game losing streak after losses to the New England Patriots in Week 13 and then an overtime loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last Sunday. The good news is that the Bills have actually played well in their all-red alternate uniforms.
According to the Gridiron Uniform Database, the Bills have worn these uniforms seven times and have won five of those games. They have worn it at least once every year, except for the 2019 season when they wore it twice.
They won their first game wearing those uniforms against the Jets but also had notable wins in 2017 during that overtime win over the Indianapolis Colts in the snow game.
Most recently the Bills wore them last year on Sunday Night Football against the Pittsburgh Steelers, which was a hard-fought first half until Taron Johnson had a pick-six right before halftime. From that point forward, the BIlls would be in control and win 26-15.
The Buffalo Bills hopefully will be able to keep their success in this uniform combination going when they face the Panthers on Sunday.
