Cincinnati Bengals Are Possibly Petitioning The NFL For Uniform Changes, Get Kay Adams To Announce White Helmet Date In 2023-24
The Cincinnati Bengals unveiled a white helmet last season. It’s objectively the best helmet in professional football. That’s not up for debate.

For now, though, it’s only guaranteed to see the field during Week 3, according to a Kay Adams-narrated video.

Commanders' Ron Rivera: 'I put my foot in my mouth' with Eric Bieniemy comments
"I basically told him I put my foot in my mouth," he said. "I think what I said wasn't as clear as it needed to be. I think the understanding of it is just the fact that I think everybody's making, in my opinion, a little bit more than needs to be made of this. Because again, the results are what you're looking for on the field, and so far, the last couple days have been outstanding.

It's been a great bit of growth the last couple of days that guys are starting to have the a-ha moments."

And when the games start up for real, we'll cross off our list, one by one, and start over. Every single week.

"I think I just really need to play just a little bit more -- it's hard to put a word on it -- but like passionate," Dillon said, via the Associated Press. "I think I need to go out there and just play a little bit more reckless, so not trying to play perfect, not trying to play perfect football. Nobody does. Just kind of go out there and for a lack of words, kind of make defenses feel me."
