The Cincinnati Bengals will wear black jerseys, white pants, and orange socks against the Baltimore Ravens, just one week after wearing black jerseys, black pants, and orange socks against them.
The Bengals wore this combo in the loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 1 and have not used it again since. That game was wild and strange, so head coach Zac Taylor probably isn’t attributing the loss to the uniform combo.
The Ravens, meanwhile, will wear all white: white jerseys, white pants, and white socks.
While our own Drew Garrison was hoping for the white color rush combo, he didn’t get his wish.
Alright, alternates are allowed once in the playoffs.— Drew Garrison (@DrewGarrison) January 9, 2023
We deserve a #WhiteBengal whiteout Sunday Night Football game in Cincinnati.
Literally All of Us.
This was because of a strict rule.
Sad to report that someone in the building reached out to me to let me know a #WhiteBengal playoff game is out.— Drew Garrison (@DrewGarrison) January 10, 2023
They wore white twice and orange once, so they’re maxed out on alternates and the rule says no playoff games.

So instead, the Bengals went with the black, white, orange combo mentioned above.
