A tiger never changes its stripes — that is, unless you’re the Cincinnati Bengals, which just debuted some brand new uniforms … and they look GOOD!!
It’s no secret — the Bengals have had some of the worst jerseys in the NFL for nearly 2 decades … with the majority of fans begging for a makeover.
Who Dey Nation’s prayers were finally answered on Monday … with Joe Burrow, Chad Ochocinco and more showing off the beautiful new threads in all their glory.
There are some significant changes to the unis — most notably, the shoulder stripes are much simpler and easier on the eyes … and the random white stripe on the side of the black jerseys are gone (a huge victory in itself).
The jerseys also have a different number font, which is meant to resemble the ridges of Paul Brown Stadium and claw marks of a tiger.
Unfortunately, there’s still a tiger print down the side of the pants — which comes in 3 different configurations — but hey, we won’t complain too much.
The big reveal came with a hype video to “Run It” by Ohio native Cal Scruby … which was a nice touch.
Will the new unis help launch the Bengals to the top of the AFC North?? Eh, Baker Mayfield and Lamar Jackson might have something to say about that … but still, this is the first win of the season for Cincy.
