Eagles wearing all-black uniforms this Sunday against Giants
The Philadelphia Eagles are back in black this Sunday against the New York Giants.
Philadelphia announced via Twitter they would be rocking their alternate uniforms for the Week 16 divisional matchup.
Usually, the Eagles wear black twice a season, and this Sunday will be their second time. The last occasion was during their 40-29 victory over the New Orleans Saints in November.
Although it’s just the second time they are wearing all black, it will be the fourth time the Eagles have had black in their uniforms this season.
The Birds wore black pants on the road against the Denver Broncos and New York Jets. A win is desperately needed for their playoff hopes, so it’s understandable why they brought these out this weekend.
The Eagles close out their season against the Giants, Washington Football Team, and the Dallas Cowboys over the next three weeks. If they win all three, they will undoubtedly secure a wildcard berth.
I was surprised Philadelphia didn’t want to save these uniforms for Dallas week. But it makes sense since that week won’t matter at all unless the Eagles win on Sunday.
There’s a possibility this could be the last time we see the Eagles in all black for quite some time. The NFL changed their one-shell rule regarding alternate helmets in 2022, and roughly half of the league is expected to have new designs. If that’s the case, there’s a good chance they are switching over to Kelly Green, but nothing is confirmed yet.
