Like they did in Week 17 last year, the Cincinnati Bengals will be wearing orange jerseys, black pants, and orange socks against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.
Hopefully the result is the same. In that game, Joe Burrow threw for 446 yards, including 266 yards and four touchdowns to Ja’Marr Chase. The Bengals went on a 17-3 run in the second half to win 34-31 on an Evan McPherson field goal as time expired. That win got Cincinnati into the postseason and allowed the Bengals to rest Burrow and other starters in Week 18.
Overall, the Bengals have found a lot of success in this jersey/pants combo, going 9-1 in franchise history, according to The Athletic’s Jay Morrison.

And yes, I have a spreadsheet for that.

Meanwhile, the Kansas City Chiefs will be wearing white jerseys. The colors of their pants and socks have yet to be officially announced. But that should not be interpreted to mean a lack of preparation on behalf of head coach Andy Reid. Indeed, the pants and socks colors of choice are likely already known within the organization.
