2018 Color Rush



In 2015, the NFL introduced promotional Thursday Night "Color Rush" games, in which teams would wear new alternate uniforms with matching jersey, pant, and sock colors. The promotion was mandatory for the selected Color Rush games from Week 10 2015, through the end of the 2017 season.

After the 2017 season, some teams elected to continue to wear their Color Rush alternate uniforms. In 2019, the Cleveland Browns even petitioned to wear their Color Rush uniform as their primary uniform, before receiving new uniforms for the 2020 season.

Color rush games are defined here as games in which the Color Rush uniforms were mandatory, or games in in which at least one team wore a uniform specifically designed for Color Rush games.
