On Sunday afternoon, the Cleveland Browns will host the Chicago Bears – who are starting rookie quarterback Justin Fields.
With Andy Dalton banged up with a knee injury, Fields will get his first NFL start in the state he used to play in. The former Ohio State star could receive somewhat of a homecoming by the Browns fans who also happen to be Ohio State fans.
While all eyes will be on Justin Fields today, that’s not the only headline entering the game. Earlier this week, the Browns announced they would be wearing a new jersey combination for the game.
According to ESPN’s Field Yates, the Browns will be wearing their 75th anniversary uniforms this afternoon. The new look features a mostly orange helmet with a white stripe down the middle.
In a somewhat “color rush” scheme, the Browns will also be wearing white jerseys and pants this afternoon.
Most of the time when a team debuts a new uniform, there are positive and negative reactions. However, social media seemed to be in consensus on the Browns new uniforms this week: everyone loves them.
