When the Falcons take the field Thursday night, they’ll have a lot on their minds and a lot at stake. They want to beat the Saints because they’re rivals and doing so would dent their NFC South hopes, of course, and because a win here keeps them alive in the playoff hunt.
While we need to grapple with all of that just as much as the Falcons do, there’s one thing we can hopefully just sit back and enjoy: Sweet Color Rush uniforms.
The team will wear an all-red jersey/pants combo that looks pretty slick on paper, though we’ll see how they fare on the field. As Tabeek notes above, this is the third straight different uniform for the Falcons at home, who won in the throwback black jerseys, lost in their classic home reds, and now get a key divisional matchup in their first ever red Color Rush jerseys.
Of course, I don’t care what the Falcons wear as long as they beat the Saints, but it’d be even better if they look good doing so.
