The Cincinnati Bengals have announced their uniform schedule for the 2022 regular season, rolling out their snazzy “White Bengal” color combo twice this year.
Cincy unveiled the team’s full 17-game uniform schedule which will see the Bengals wear all-white for two games, Week 4 against the Miami Dolphins and Week 11 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Bengals will also wear their alternate orange jerseys in a highly anticipated Week 13 matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Cincinnati Bengals reveal their jersey schedule for 2022 regular season
The newly revised NFL helmet rules allow teams to wear alternate helmets on a limited basis to pair with their uniforms, giving teams more freedom to style their outfits on the field.
Per the guidelines, all uses of alternate helmets must follow certain parameters; for example, the alternate helmets must be the same make, model and size as the player’s primary helmet.
The league’s helmet policy was based on safety reasons, as it was assumed that players would be at greater risk for injury if they were continually changing in and out of different headgear every week.
Instead of their traditional home and away uniforms, the Bengals now get to wear a classy all-white look as well as their bright orange jerseys for a total of three games this season
If you’re planning to support the Bengals in-person at some point in the season, the uniform schedule should help you plan your fit accordingly.
