You've seen the Falcons play in all-black uniforms. You've seen them play in all-white. Next season, could have you seeing red.
The NFL debuted "color rush" uniforms for four Thursday night games late last season. Teams were "saturated head-to-toe by one of the respective team’s current or historic primary colors."
If the Falcons are lucky enough to be scheduled to play on a Thursday night game in 2016, you could see them in all-red.
Falcons CEO Rich McKay told the Atlanta Business Chronicle:
“That will be unique and different for sure. I have the uniform in my office. It’s certainly shocking but it will be interesting to see Matt Ryan and his legs in all red.”
The Falcons will face Carolina, New Orleans, Tampa Bay, Arizona, San Francisco, Kansas City, San Diego and Green Bay at the Georgia Dome this upcoming season. Game dates and times will be announced later next month.
