This Thursday night gives us one of the best matchups of the season. The New England Patriots take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. What will the Color Rush uniforms look like?
Thursday Night Football didn’t bring us a ton of excitement between the Packers and Bears last week but that was expected. Week 5 is set to be a different story. It’s a Color Rush matchup between two legitimate playoff contenders and Super Bowl favorites.
The New England Patriots (2-2) travel to Tampa Bay to take on the Buccaneers (2-1) in an AFC-NFC showdown. The game kicks off from Raymond James Stadium at 8:25 p.m. ET. We expect a great game between the two teams and even better uniforms. Let’s take a look at the Color Rush for both teams on Thursday night.
The Patriots opened up Week 1 of the season on a Thursday, but because of special circumstances, didn’t wear their Color Rush uniforms. The wait is over and we’ll see them debuted on Thursday night.
Like their head coach, these uniforms aren’t anything exciting but are one of the best looks we’ve seen this season. The red and white stripes on the shoulder pop out on the navy top. It’s safe to say we probably won’t see Bill Belichick in any Color Rush apparel unless it’s in the contract.
The best part of the Patriots’ Color Rush uniforms is a part you won’t even be able to see on the field. The uniforms include a “We Are All Patriots” message on the inside collar.
On the other side of the field, the Bucs will go for a much brighter look. They’ll be sporting the same all-red uniforms from last year. I think it’s a great look and if you want to get some attention on a prime time game, this is certainly the way to do it.
As long as they don’t come up against the Rams in all yellow, I really have nothing to complain about.
This should be one of the best Thursday Night Football matchups we see this season. After years of mediocrity, the Bucs are now a forced to be reckoned with. They’ve got a young and explosive offense, paired with a very underrated defense. They’ll face their biggest test of the season coming up against the defending champs.
Not many of us expected the Patriots to be .500 at this point in the season, but they’ve had their struggles. The problem hasn’t been scoring points but rather stopping them. With 12 games still left to play and the experience of Brady and Belichick, there’s no time to panic. The Patriots can turn things around with a statement win on the road.
Let’s hope this game lives up to expectations as we all are desperate for some good football on Thursday night.
