The Bengals have released the schedule for when they will wear what jersey this season. It started out with a bang as the color rush jerseys debuted in Week 1 against the Colts. The Bengals players love those jerseys, and they started the season on a high note by winning in the white uniforms.
In Week 2, the Bengals are scheduled to wear black jerseys and white pants against the Ravens. The Bengals are 33-32-1 (.508) when wearing black on white since 2004.
For the population of the fan base that gets excited about what jersey the Bengals wear each week, this year offers incredible news as the team released its full jersey schedule ahead of Week 1.
Here is when the Bengals will wear each jersey:
- Week 2 vs Ravens
- Week 3 at Panthers
- Week 6 vs Steelers
- Week 8 vs Bucs
- Week 12 vs Brown
- Week 13 vs Broncos
- Week 15 vs Raiders
- Week 4 at Falcons
- Week 7 at Chiefs
- Week 11 at Ravens
- Week 14 at Chargers
- Week 16 at Browns
- Week 17 at Steelers
- Week 1 at Colts
The first takeaway from all of this is that the Bengals will only have one week with their color rush uniforms, which are arguably their best ones. Since color rush uniforms have no longer become mandatory for Thursday Night Football and the NFL relaxed their policy to allow a team to wear an alternate jersey up to three times in 2018 instead of two, it is disappointing we will only see them once during the season. Instead it appears the Bengals opted to wear their orange jerseys twice on top of the color rush.
The team also doesn’t have any throwback jerseys, but that isn’t surprising since they haven’t worn throwbacks in a log time. Although, it could be a good time to sprinkle in some 80’s jerseys if for nothing more than a fun themed night at Paul Brown Stadium. Not to mention the team will be honoring the 1988 team that made the Super Bowl this season.
