COLOR RUSH UNIFORMS RETURN FOR GIANTS VS. COWBOYS
BY MATT COHEN
Get ready to fear the rush again this Sunday – the Color Rush, that is.
For the second straight season, the Giants will break out their Color Rush alternate jerseys, which the team will wear for their Week 14 home game against the Dallas Cowboys. It will be the first time fans at MetLife Stadium get to see the all-white uniforms and throwback 'GIANTS' helmet (Big Blue wore them on the road last season in Philadelphia).
The Color Rush concept debuted in 2015 during four "Thursday Night Football" matchups to commemorate 50 years of NFL games being broadcast in color. It was expanded to all 32 teams last season, and again featured opposing teams wearing one-color uniforms, intentionally designed to clash with their opponent.
Thursday night games have traditionally become Color Rush matchups, but the Giants only Thursday game this season was their Week 12 contest on Thanksgiving Night against the Redskins. Since the NFL did not designate that game for Color Rush, the Giants were free at the beginning of the season to choose when they wanted to wear the uniforms, so long as it was after Week 5.
It will be the first time the Giants have worn the white tops at home since their 2000 home opener against the Cardinals.
"Let's do Color Rush for a game the fans are going to be excited for and amped up for," Giants equipment director Joe Skiba said before the season. "That's definitely the Dallas home game. We wanted to wear them for a home game because last year we were on the road in Philadelphia. It's a homage to the 80s and giving it a modern slant."
