When you have a quarterback like Joe Burrow, you’ve got to make him look good. The Cincinnati Bengals revealed their uniforms for the Super Bowl and….let’s just say it’s a fantastic year to be a Bengals fan.
The Bengals are the designated home team for Super Bowl LVI, so they had the first choice of uniform.
Fans saw them in all-white against the Chiefs and Titans, but as Cincy prepares to take on the Los Angeles Rams, the team decided to go in a different, albeit incredibly classy, direction.
Just take our money already. This is dope:
Other than the obvious “glow-up,” this is the exact same color scheme the Bengals wore in their first Super Bowl appearance in 1982.
Cincinnati’s black base color means the Rams will have to deviate from their blue and yellow (or, if you want to be pretentious, royal and sol) combination they’ve worn in each of their previous playoff wins.
Cincinnati Bengals Super Bowl uniforms vs history
Teams wearing white jerseys have won 14 of the last 17 Super Bowls, so LA may not be complaining too much. They were forced to go with a bone-gray color scheme.
The Bengals weren’t about to let this game come down to chance, though, much less some irrelevant historical stat. They’re writing their own narrative this season, and that includes playing the best football as well as donning the best-looking jerseys.
And if you don’t know what Cincinnati is referring to in the Twitter caption, here’s a brief explanation. It has to do with that cheap, rather ugly plastic coat hanger in the picture.
Last offseason, as fans eagerly awaited the Cincinnati Bengals’ 2021 jersey reveal, someone got his hands on the jersey pictures first and leaked them online.
Peep the plastic clothes hanger.
Those 2021 uniforms were considered duds by most fans and definitely not championship-worthy.
Come Super Bowl Sunday, the Bengals can look good, play good, and win good in their smashing new jerseys.
Joey B, who’s a bit of a stylish dandy himself, no doubt approves.
