As the NFL wraps up its 100th season with Super Bowl LIV, we look at the top 100 uniforms of all time ranging from the Bumblebees to the Creamsicles.

100. 1931 Philadelphia Eagles

As we move up the list, we’ll get to some classic looks. At the 100th spot, not so much. The Eagles thankfully left these things in the background after wearing them as a throwback in 2007.

99. 1994 New York Jets

The Jets wore these as a throwback in 1994. Here’s a question… when were these uniforms ever worn? The answer is never. The rest of the uniform is pretty, but the helmet is unfortunate.

98. 2010 Miami Dolphins

The teal and orange color scheme is always going to be classic, but these number fonts are a blight. Miami went to these in the mid 90s and frankly, the uniform and team have never recovered.

PHILADELPHIA – NOVEMBER 07: Quarterback Peyton Manning #18 of the Indianapolis Colts adubiles at the line of scrimmage during a game against the Philadelphia Eagles on November 7, 2010 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Eagles won 26-24. (Photo by Hunter Martin/Philadelphia Eagles/Getty Images)

97. 1954 Baltimore Colts

This helmet is maybe the weirdest we’ve seen. So weird, it had to make the list. The horseshoes were actually on the back of the headware in the mid 1950s for Baltimore, for reasons nobody really understands.

PITTSBURGH, PA – OCTOBER 09: Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger #7 of the Pittsburgh Steelers hands off the ball against the New York Jets at Heinz Field on October 9, 2016 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The Steelers wore their Throwback Uniforms. (Photo by Al Pereira/Getty Images)

96. 1933 Pittsburgh Steelers

Bumblebees or a prison jumpsuit. Either way, if you’ve seen the Steelers wearing these, you aren’t going to forget. Pittsburgh thankfully evolved over the years, but this edition of the uniform is memorable.

NEW YORK – CIRCA 1967: Running back Floyd Little #44 of the Denver Broncos carries the ball against the New York Jets during an NFL football game at Shea Stadium circa 1967 in the Queens borough of New York City. Little played for the Broncos from 1967-75. (Photo by Focus on Sport/Getty Images)

95. 1967 Denver Broncos

Did you know the Broncos played one season without a logo on their helmets? Yep, 1967. Denver was giving the vintage look a chance, but it lasted only 14 games before going to the John Elway era threads.

25 Sep 1994: Quarterback Heath Shuler of the Washington Redskins looks to pass the ball during a game against the Atlanta Falcons at RFK Stadium in Washington, D. C. The Falcons won the game, 27-20.

94. 1938 Washington Redskins

Throwbacks are always fun, especially when you picture them during their actual heyday. You can see Sammy Baugh wearing them. The red helmet and gold mask/numbers/pants aren’t a great combination, but they were worth bringing back for a few games.

12 Sep 1993: Quarterback Drew Bledsoe of the New England Patriots passes the ball during a game against the Detroit Lions at Foxboro Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts. The Lions won the game in overtime, 19-16. Mandatory Credit: Rick Stewart /Allsport

93. 1993 New England Patriots

These lasted for a single year before being switched up. the biggest complaint is the white shoulder numbers against the bright red chest numerals. Plus, RIP Pat Patriot.

22 Sep 1996: Quarterback Steve Beuerlein #7 of the Carolina Panthers looks into the back field as he turns to hand off to his running back during a play in the Panthers 23-7 victory over the 49ers at Ericsson Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina. Mandato

92. 1996 Carolina Panthers

Carolina entered the league with these, and they haven’t changed much save for adding the black and electric blue alternates. The sleeve sand pant stripes leave smothering to be desired, but the color scheme is solid.

Warner completed 30 of 48 attempts and threw 4 interceptions and was sacked twice as he lost for the first time at home in the Dome at America’s Center.

91. 2001 St. Louis Rams

Of all the Rams’ jersey iterations, this was the worst. The blue and gold is the best. The blue and white was passable. This was bad from the huge side panels to the brownish gold pants.

GREEN BAY, WISCONSIN – DECEMBER 02: Larry Fitzgerald #11 of the Arizona Cardinals lines up for a play in the third quarter against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field on December 02, 2018 in Green Bay, Wisconsin. (Photo by Dylan Buell/Getty Images)

90. 2018 Arizona Cardinals

There’s nothing wrong with this uniform, there just isn’t much right, either. The Cardinals have always been somewhat bland, and this rendition loses points for the stripes that tail off on the pants.

NEW YORK – OCTOBER 25: Pat Hughes #56 of the New York Giants in action against the St. Louis Cardinals during an NFL football game October 25, 1975 at Shea Stadium in the Queens borough of New York City. Hughes played for the Giants from 1970-76. (Photo by Focus on Sport/Getty Images)

89. 1975 New York Giants

This is the only year the Giants wore the “ny” disco-style logo on their helmets. The following year, the team moved to the Meadowlands in East Rutherford, N.J., and “GIANTS” was put on the helmet to scrub away any anger from New Jersey natives.

SEATTLE, WA – DECEMBER 30: Russell Wilson #3 of the Seattle Seahawks throws the ball in the third quarter against the Arizona Cardinals at CenturyLink Field on December 30, 2018 in Seattle, Washington. (Photo by Otto Greule Jr/Getty Images)

88. 2018 Seattle Seahawks

There’s a ton going on here. The lime green. The stripes coming into the chest. The pants having a  weird stripe. These are almost so bizarre, it forces them to be cool.

BALTIMORE, MD – OCTOBER 21: Quarterback Joe Flacco #5 of the Baltimore Ravens. (Photo by Todd Olszewski/Getty Images)

87. 2016 Baltimore Ravens

When the Ravens go monochrome, they can have the look of pajamas. However, the purple tops and bottoms are the best combination, especially considering the purple pants have a thick stripe to break everything up.

ARLINGTON, TX – DECEMBER 09: Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz (11) looks downfield for an open receiver during the game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles on December 9, 2018 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington.

86. 2018 Philadelphia Eagles

This is the second of seven Eagles’ uniforms on our list, the most of any team. These are solid, but they have nothing on the Kelly green look of the ’80s and ’90s.

2 Dec 1990: Running back Mike Rozier of the Atlanta Falcons moves the ball during a game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the Fulton County Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. The Buccaneers won the game, 23-17. Mandatory Credit: Joe Patronite /Allsport

85. 1990 Atlanta Falcons

Every time you look at these uniforms, you have to think about “2 legit 2 quit,” right? Atlanta changed from its beautiful red helmets and tops to all black, and while it makes for a tougher look, it’s a downgrade.

DETROIT, MI – DECEMBER 31: Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford (9) looks on during a NFL football game between Detroit and Green Bay on December 31, 2017, at Ford Field in Detroit, MI. (Photo by Adam Ruff/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images)

84. 2018 Detroit Lions

The Lions decided to jazz up the number font and add some more striping on the helmet and sleeves. It’s not bad, but the simplistic scheme that Barry Sanders rocked for a decade remains superior.

17 Nov 1991: Running back Gill Fenerty of the New Orleans Saints moves the ball during a game against the San Diego Chargers at Jack Murphy Stadium in San Diego, California. The Chargers won the game, 24-21.

83. 1991 New Orleans Saints

You know what’s underrated? The Louisiana patch on these pants with the fleur-de-lis denoting where New Orleans is within the state. Nothing memorable about these specifically, but it’s a good uniform.

9 Nov 1997: Cornerback Ray Crockett of the Denver Broncos (center) celebrates with teammates Darrien Gordon, Tim Molyer and others during a game against the Carolina Panthers at Mile High Stadium in Denver, Colorado. The Broncos won the game 34-0. Manda

82. 1998 Denver Broncos

Let’s say this out front. The Broncos never should have changed their uniforms. We should still have the Three Amigos era, but these could have turned out much worse. The pants need a normal stripe and the piping through the shoulders is too much, but again, it could be worse.

PHILADELPHIA, PA – OCTOBER 15: Quarterback John Reaves #6 of the Philadelphia Eagles in action against the Los Angeles Rams during an NFL football game at Veterans Stadium October 15, 1972 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Reaves played for the Eagles from 1972-74. (Photo by Focus on Sport/Getty Images)

81. 1972 Philadelphia Eagles

HELLO 1970s. The Eagles weren’t shy about changing up the look, and in 1969, they started wearing white helmets only for home games before making it a permanent change in 1970.

CHICAGO, IL – OCTOBER 28: Mitchell Trubisky #10 of the Chicago Bears passes against the New York Jets at Soldier Field on October 28, 2018 in Chicago, Illinois. The Bears defeated the Jets 24-10. (Photo by Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images)

80. 1945 Chicago Bears

If you love the history of the game, you’re probably familiar with these. The Bears have always enjoyed some of the better uniforms in the sport, and the throwbacks to the ’40s are no exception. Clean, classic and timeless.

KANSAS CITY, MO – OCTOBER 11: Quarterback Matt Cassel #7 of the Kansas City Chiefs looks to make a pass play during the NFL game against the Dallas Cowboys at Arrowhead Stadiumin on October 11, 2009 Kansas City, Missouri. The Cowboys defeated the Chiefs 26-20 in overtime. (Photo by Jamie Squire/Getty Images)

79. 1960 Dallas Texans

The dawn of the AFL brought eight new teams into professional football, including the Dallas Texans. The Texans became the Kansas City Chiefs, which you can see from the color scheme. Very simple uniform with a nice helmet logo.

28 Sep 1997: Quarterback Vinny Testaverde #12 of the Baltimore Ravens looks to hand the football off during the Ravens 21-17 loss to the San Diego Chargers at Qualcomm Park in San Diego, California. Mandatory Credit: Jed Jacobsohn /Allsport

78. 1997 Baltimore Ravens

These are the original jerseys from when the Ravens came to be in the mid-90s. Baltimore had the large ravens on each shoulder with the Maryland crest on the helmet. Out of that came two wings. It’s weird, and somehow it works.

ATLANTA, GA – DECEMBER 31: Keanu Neal

77. 2018 Atlanta Falcons

Going back to the red uniforms was always going to score points here. The Falcons also added some red back into the helmet, although that still needs to become a full red. Regardless, upgrades over the Andre Rison era.

(Original Caption) Cowboys Bob Hayes (22) runs around right end for a five yard gain during a game with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

76. 1966 Pittsburgh Steelers

Tough to tell because the photo is in black and white, but the shoulders are adorned in yellow, giving the Steelers a cape look. It’s unique and only lasted a few years before going the way of extinction.

BUFFALO, NY – NOVEMBER 21: Quarterback Joe Ferguson #12 of the Buffalo Bills turns to hand the ball off to running back Roosevelt Leaks #48 against the Miami Dolphins November 21, 1982 during an NFL football game at Rich Stadium in Buffalo, New York. Ferguson played for the Bills from 1973-84. (Photo by Focus on Sport/Getty Images)

75. 1982 Buffalo Bills

The Bills went to the charging buffalo from the standing one in the mid-70s and haven’t looked back (even though they should have). These aren’t classics, but there’s nothing to complain about. No craziness, properly-sized logo, etc.

CLEVELAND, OH – DECEMBER 7: Mike Pruitt #43 of the Cleveland Browns carries the ball against the New York Jets during an NFL Football game December 7, 1980 at Cleveland Municipal Stadium in Cleveland, Ohio. Pruitt played for the Browns from 1976-84. (Photo by Focus on Sport/Getty Images)

74. 1980 Cleveland Browns

These are from the short era of the Browns wearing orange pants with brown tops. Cleveland didn’t continue this tradition past the early 1980s, but it was a solid choice.

73. 1937 Green Bay Packers

You want throwbacks? You’ve got throwbacks. The Packers thrived in these duds by way of the passing game with Don Hutson catching 99 touchdowns over the course of his Hall of Fame career.

(Photo by Robert Riger/Getty Images)

72. 1956 New York Giants

New York has always maintained a certain sense of class and elegance throughout its history. The uniforms in 1956 certainly fit that bill, with white numerals against navy blue tops.

19 Nov 1995: Wide receiver Vincent Brisby of the New England Patriots during the Patriots 24-10 win over the Indianapolis Colts at Foxboro Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts.

71. 1995 New England Patriots

Whew, ton going on here. The flying Elvis’ not just on each side of the helmet, but in HUGE jersey patches. GET IT. Also, we’ve got the funky jersey numbers and the low-key stripes vertically down the tops. Ridiculous(ly cool).

70. 2018 Kansas City Chiefs

Ketchup bottle? Yes, but we know Patrick Mahomes love ketchup. Plus, the Chiefs only roll these out when the games are big, so there’s a certain element of anticipation with them. Monochrome is usually a bad idea, but these are solid.

Reynolds, quarterback for the Chicago Cardinals, stands on the field with his hands on hips between plays during a game against the New York Giants at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York, New York, October 1958. #33 Ollie Matson stands nearby with other Cardinal players. (Photo by Robert Riger/Getty Images)

69. 1958 Chicago Cardinals

You aren’t going to find a uniform simplier than this. The red pants do have a double-white stripe down the sides, but that’s it. No shoulder numbers, no stripes on the sleeves, no outline on the numbers. Old school.

10 Dec 1995: Quarterback Rick Mirer

68. 1995 Seattle Seahawks

Seattle went with a little extra on these uniforms, but count us among its fans. The sleeves now have seahawks on either side, with more green striping on both the sleeves and pants. Also, big fan of the blue facemask.

67. 2017 Houston Texans

Houston has never changed its uniform, and we salute the Texans for it. The red, white and blue combination has worked for America, and it’s working for Houston.

66. 1948 Philadelphia Eagles

Philadelphia won a pair of titles in these, and what a dashing look it was. The Eagles were ahead of most teams with a design on the helmet, along with those sweet green pants. Well done.

65. 2002 Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The biggest problem with these are we had to lose Bucco Bruce and the gang for them. Still, the pewter is a cool color and one that no other team had never worn before. The helmet is a bit bland, but the uniform gets a passing grade.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – AUGUST 19: Bob St. Clair #79, Joe Arenas #22 and Bob Toneff #74 of the San Francisco 49ers stand on the sideline during an NFL game against the Cleveland Browns on August 19, 1956 at Kezar Stadium in San Francisco, California. (Photo by Hy Peskin/Getty Images) (Set Number: X4022)

64. 1956 San Francisco 49ers

The 49ers brought these back in 1994, but the originals deserve a spot of their own. Of course, the helmets here weren’t replicated in ’94, and neither were those belts. These are fantastic.

63. 2018 Minnesota Vikings

The Vikings have done a nice job of not staying too far from what the uniforms has classically looked like. These current duds are a bit different, but mostly in the striping. Purple and gold continues to be a nice combination.

62. 2018 Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jaguars had one of the busiest uniforms in the league for the better part of the last decade, but their finally wised up. Again, nothing wild here. Jaguar on the chest, white numbers against a teal background, and a shiny black helmet without any bells and whistles.

61. 1992 San Diego Chargers

These uniforms are always forgotten in Chargers history, but it’s one of the more menacing schemes we’ve seen. San Diego went from light to dark blue, and lost the yellow pants for white at home and blue on the road. Very underrated.

DETROIT, MI – SEPTEMBER 16: Alex Karras #71, Roger Brown #76 and Darris McCord #78 of the Detroit Lions looks on waiting for the Pittsburgh Steelers offense to come to the line of scrimmages during an NFL football game at Tiger Stadium September 16, 1962 in Detroit, Michigan. Karras played for Lions from 1959-62 and 1964-70. (Photo by Focus on Sport/Getty Images)

60. 1964 Detroit Lions

The Lions have changed very little since adding a logo to the silver helmet. The ’64 team was lucky enough to have the double navy stripe down the middle with no outrageous borers on the lion itself.

NEW YORK – NOVEMBER 13, 1960: (L to R) Running back John Henry Johnson #35 and punter Bobby Joe Green #89 of the Pittsburgh Steelers watch the action from the sidelines during a game on November 13, 1960 against the New York Giants at Yankee Stadium in New York, New York.  1960 Kidwiler Collection/Diamond Images

59. 1960 Pittsburgh Steelers

Pittsburgh had some different looks in the early ’60s, and this deserves a spot on our list. The helmets are simple with the numbers on each side of a gold face, with the black stripe down the middle. The Steelers didn’t have much success, though, and eventually changed before becoming a dynasty.

DALLAS, TX – OCTOBER 1: Quarterback Roman Gabriel #18 of the Los Angeles Rams stands under center against the Dallas Cowboys during an NFL football game at the Cotton Bowl October 1, 1967 in Dallas Texas. Gabriel played for the Rams from 1962-72. (Photo by Focus on Sport/Getty Images)

58. 1967 Los Angeles Rams

The Rams never should have left the blue and gold behind. Yet they did throughout the 1960s and early ’70s, and while the white isn’t bad, it just doesn’t have the same pop. Still, it’s clean and straightforward, and that counts for something.

57. 1966 Denver Broncos

The only crime here is that we couldn’t find a color photo including the helmets. The Broncos originally had yellow and brown uniforms, but eventually ditched them for the blue and orange. This is one of the more unique looks in the league’s history, especially with the cartoonish bronco jumping around on an orange helmet. Awesome stuff.

WASHINGTON, DC – CIRCA 1970’s: Running back Larry Brown #43 of the Washington Redskins carries the ball against the Dallas Cowboys during a circa 1970’s NFL football game at RFK Stadium in Washington, DC. Brown played for the Redskins from 1969-76. (Photo by Focus on Sport/Getty Images)

56. 1971 Washington Redskins

The Redskins only wore these for two seasons, but they remain a little bit of a cult classic. Washington had adorned its helmets with a spear or a long feather down the middle for years, but changed everything in 1970 when it put a big “R” within a circle. The helmet was also yellow with a single red stripe. In 1972, they changed to the current scheme and reached the Super Bowl.

55. 2001 New England Patriots

The Patriots barely changed their uniforms at all from the mid 1960s through the 1992 season. Then, they couldn’t stop making changes. Finally, New England figured out what it was searching for. Doesn’t hurt when you win six Super Bowls with them.

54. 1962 Houston Oilers

Going old school here. You don’t often see a color photo of these uniforms, but this one is a beauty. The blue helmet with a white rig, set off by red numbers on an otherwise plain white jersey. Not a bad way to start the franchise.

53. 1989 Phoenix Cardinals

The Cardinals didn’t change their helmets upon arriving in Phoenix in 1988, but the jersey did get some tweaks. Check out the State of Arizona flag on the sleeve and the additional cardinal faces above them. Add in the thick stripes on the pants, and it’s a fun design.

ATLANTA, GA – OCTOBER 24: Quarterback Dick Shiner #11 of the Atlanta Falcons hands off to running back Jim Butler #33 against the New Orleans Saints at Fulton-County Stadium on October 24, 1971 in Atlanta, Georgia. The Falcons defeated the Saints 28-6. (Photo by Bob Verlin/Getty Images)

52. 1971 Atlanta Falcons

These are simple yet classy. The Falcons are rocking their original red tops, socks and helmets along with that beautiful stripe on the crown. There’s nothing incredibly memorable about the look, but it comes together quite well.

51. 1981 Cincinnati Bengals

When this uniform came out, the reaction was a mixed of wide eyes and laughter. Cincinnati was really trying to look like Bengals, and the experiment worked. The team went from a franchise without many signature moments to the AFC champions in a matter of months.

50. 1980 Philadelphia Eagles

Stripes for the win. After being terrible for the better part of 20 years, the Eagles threw these uniforms on and behind Ron Jaworski and Dick Vermeil, went to the first Super Bowl in franchise history in 1980.

49. 1994 San Francisco 49ers

The 49ers are the only team in NFL history that won a Super Bowl wearing their throwbacks. The team was playing so well in them that they asked the league’s permission to wear them through Super Bowl XXIX. It was granted, and the 49ers rolled to their fifth title, smashing the Chargers.

48. 1981 San Diego Chargers

Another Chargers uniform, and another awesome look. The lightning bolt down the side of the pants is a great touch, along with them adorning the shoulders and helmet. It’s not the powder blues, but it’s still a beaut.

(Photo by Jim Dedmon/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images)

47. 2016 New Orleans Saints

You won’t see many color rush uniforms on this list, but the Saints’ road jerseys are awesome. The white is bright, the gold pops and the striping is impeccable. Really well done.

46. 1969 Washington Redskins

The spear on the helmet for Washington should be brought back at least once or twice per season. The rest of the look is solid as well, with burgundy and gold always providing a nice contrast.

45. 1999 Tennessee Titans

The Titans have never been able to match the great uniforms of their predecessors in Houston, but this was their best shot at it. When Eddie George was running the rock in these, there was style and flair.

Quarterback Mark Brunell of the Jacksonville Jaguars looks to pass the ball during a game against the Cincinnati Bengals at Jacksonville Municipal Stadium in Jacksonville, Florida. The Bengals won the game, 30-27.

44. 1996 Jacksonville Jaguars

Here’s a little-known fact: the Jaguars actually had to change their original helmet design because Jaguar, the car company, thought it was too close to their logo. The revamped look ended up being a winner, with Jacksonville giving us one of the NFL’s better looks right out of the gate.

43. 2015 Carolina Panthers

The black edition of the Panthers uniforms is definitely the best. Forget the bright blue, the black gives Carolina a nice edge and the blue pops as a secondary color. The helmet also shines more with this combination.

42. 1999 Baltimore Ravens

The Ravens don’t have a ton of different looks in their short history, but this is the strongest. Note the raven with its wings open on the sleeves, the Maryland crest on the pants and the current helmet still being employed. When you think of these uniforms, you think toughness.

41. 1957 Cleveland Browns

The black and white photo doesn’t do the uniform justice, but take a look at the helmet. The Browns actually have a thin white stripe down the middle and numbers on each side. It’s the only time that Cleveland ever had decals — other than stripes — on the helmet.

40. 1991 Buffalo Bills

The Bills have changed uniforms many times, but these were keepers. The red helmet never looked better than with the simple blue uniforms and white pants. The red socks are a nice touch, all while the outsized buffalo on the headgear charged to four straight Super Bowls.

39. 1986 New York Jets

These let you know the ’80s are in full swing. The stripes are big, the stripes are everywhere. Plus, don’t undersell that logo on the helmet. While it was sandwiched by the football-inspired emblem of the ’60s and ’90s, the “JETS” should never be forgotten.

38. 1994 Dallas Cowboys

Man, 1994 gives us a ton of great stuff. The NFL was celebrating its 75th anniversary, and so each team wore throwbacks. The best part? Some of the uniforms had never actually been worn before! Take the Cowboys, who had never worn this uniform until ’94, and have never worn it since.

37. 1969 Cincinnati Bengals

You want simple and classy? We’ve got simple and classy. When Paul Brown became head coach and owner of the fledgling Bengals of the American Football League, he wanted to have very similar uniforms to the team that fired him (and bared his name). This is why the Bengals have almost an identical color scheme to the Browns, and the helmet is strikingly simplistic.

MINNEAPOLIS, MN – DECEMBER 21: Quarterback Jim Hart #17 of the St. Louis Cardinals drops back to pass against the Minnesota Vikings during an NFL football game at Metropolitan Stadium December 21, 1974 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Hart played for the Cardinals from 1966-83. (Photo by Focus on Sport/Getty Images)

36. 1974 St. Louis Cardinals

The Cardinals have had some strong uniforms and some not so strong uniforms, but this was their best. During the Jim Hart era in St. Louis, the Cardinals were simple and yet strong, showcasing a good splash of red and an angry bird on the dome.

OAKLAND, CA – CIRCA 1970’s: Quarterback Jim Zorn #10 of the Seattle Seahawks in action against the Oakland Raiders circa late 1970’s during an NFL football game at the Oakland Coliseum in Oakland, California. Zorn played for the Seahawks from 1976-84. (Photo by Focus on Sport/Getty Images)

35. 1976 Seattle Seahawks

The Seahawks don’t have incredibly memorable uniforms, but the original silver with green ad blue trim was a good decision. The striping was nice, the helmet was crisp and the Kingdome was loud as hell.

34. 2018 Los Angeles Chargers

The Chargers make another appearance, and it won’t be their last on our list. The uniform has changed many times, but Los Angeles has gotten it right time and again.

33. 1963 Philadelphia Eagles

Philadelphia had this look in the early 1960s, featuring silver wings on each side of the helmet with no border around them. The Eagles never should have moved on from the Kelly green.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – CIRCA 1960’s: John Brodie #12 of San Franicisco 49ers, drops back to pass against the Dallas Cowboys during a mid circa 1960’s NFL football game at Kezar Stadium in San Franicisco, California. Brode played for the 49ers from 1957-73. (Photo by Focus on Sport/Getty Images)

32. 1971 San Francisco 49ers

The 49ers have largely kept the same look, save for those hideous uniforms during the Jeff Garcia era. Here is the late 1960s and early ’70s edition, with the thin stripes on the pants and the big logo on the helmet. Well done.

NEW YORK – DECEMBER 6: Quarterback Daryle Lamonica #3 of the Oakland Raiders drops back to pass against the New York Jets December 6, 1970 during an NFL football game at Shea Stadium in the Queens borough of New York City. Lamonica played for the Raiders from 1967-74. (Photo by Focus on Sport/Getty Images)

31. 1968 Oakland Raiders

The Raiders tried out silver numerals on the white uniforms for a few years in the late ’60s and early ’70s before going to black. While their preference for black is hard to criticize, this idea wasn’t a bad one. The silver looks terrific.

NEW YORK – OCTOBER 5: Fred Dryer #89 of the New York Giants in action against the Chicago Bears during an NFL football game at Yankee Stadium October 5, 1969 in the Bronx borough of New York City. Dryer played for the Giants from 1969-71. (Photo by Focus on Sport/Getty Images)

30. 1969 New York Giants

Fred Dryer’s helmet just screams of a bygone era. The Giants have tried out a few different combinations over the decades, but this is a classic. The “ny” on the helmet disappeared for a while when in 1976, the team moved to New Jersey. In this photo, you see the lack of striping on the sleeves and the huge numbers on the front of the helmet.

29. 1984 Miami Dolphins

The Dolphins’ original look didn’t feature the striping on the sleeves that we see here, and the pants were striped more as well. It screamed 1980s, and when you think of that decade? You think of Miami. You can bet Don Johnson loved these bad boys.

28. 1985 Chicago Bears

The Bears have remained an iconic look throughout the years. This is the second of three Chicago jerseys on the list, and it’s differentiated from the Dick Butkus era due to the “GSH” patch on the left sleeve in memory of George Halas. The other main difference? The “C” on the helmet is orange instead of white.

NEW YORK – DECEMBER 16: Quarterback Eddie LeBaron #14 of the Dallas Cowboys stands under center against the New York Giants during an NFL football game at Yankee Stadium December 16, 1962 in the Bronx borough of New York City. LeBaron played for the Cowboys from 1960-63. (Photo by Focus on Sport/Getty Images)

27. 1962 Dallas Cowboys

There’s something about the blue and white together. If you go piece by piece, these jerseys are extremely basic. The star has no outline. The stripes on the pants are normal and the sleeves are coated like a cape. Still, when it comes together, it’s fantastic.

FOXBOROUGH, MA – NOVEMBER 3: Tony Eason #11 of the New England Patriots drops back to pass against the Miami Dolphins during an NFL football game November 3, 1985 at Sullivan Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts. Eason played for the Patriots from 1983-89. (Photo by Focus on Sport/Getty Images)

26. 1985 New England Patriots

Pat Patriots says hello. New England never, ever should have left Pat behind Flying Elvis, even if we’ve seen title after title in the new uniforms. These were classics, and remain so.

NEW YORK -NOVEMBER 16: Danny Abramowicz #46 of the New Orleans Saints in action against the New York Giants during an NFL football game at Yankee Stadium November 16, 1969 in the Bronx borough of New York City. Abramowicz played for the Saints from 1967-73. (Photo by Focus on Sport/Getty Images)

25. 1969 New Orleans Saints

The Saints have always had good uniforms, but they got it best the first time. The fleur-de-lis was larger on the helmet in the 1960s and early ’70s, while the gold was more of a true brown. Heck of a way to come into the league.

ATLANTA, GA – NOVEMBER 30: William Andrews #31 of the Atlanta Falcons carries the ball against the Washington Redskins during an NFL football game November 30, 1980 at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. Andrews played for the Falcons from 1979-86. (Photo by Focus on Sport/Getty Images)

24. 1980 Atlanta Falcons

Why the Falcons ever moved on from red helmets and uniforms remains a mystery. And a uniform crime. Maybe there was too much losing, but these duds were spectacular.

LOS ANGELES, CA – NOVEMBER 10: Dick Daugherty #50, Ken Panfil #73 and Paul Miller #81 of the Los Angeles Rams run to the sideline during an NFL game against the San Francisco 49ers on November 10, 1957 at the Los Angeles Coliseum in Los Angeles, California. (Photo by Hy Peskin/Getty Images)

23. 1957 Los Angeles Rams

The Rams were the first team to put a logo on their helmets. The tradition started when halfback Fred Gehrke painted horns on his helmet in 1948 before doing the same for his teammates. While not every team caught on right away, most franchises began decorating their helmets within the following 10-15 years. The only remaining holdout? The Browns.

PHILADELPHIA, PA – CIRCA 1990’s: Barry Sanders #20 of the Detroit Lions carries the ball against the Philadelphia Eagles circa early 1990’s during an NFL football game at Veterans Stadium in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Sanders played for the Lions from 1989-98.(Photo by Focus on Sport/Getty Images)

22. 1991 Detroit Lions

Detroit hasn’t changed its jersey radically throughout the years, but the Barry Sanders era saw the best iteration. The silver and blue goes beautifully together, especially when the team got into the sun and out of the draconian Silverdome.

MINNEAPOLIS, MN – OCTOBER 25: Bill Brown #30 of the Minnesota Vikings carries the ball against the Baltimore Colts during an NFL football game at Metropolitan Stadium October 2, 1971 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Brown played for the Viking from 1962-74. (Photo by Focus on Sport/Getty Images)

21. 1971 Minnesota Vikings

Another NFC North (Central) team that has stayed relatively true to its history. The Vikings have no reason to change up the look, with the purple and gold being one of the classier uniforms in the league. From Fran Tarkenton and Chuck Foreman to the Purple People Eaters, this is a winner.

LOS ANGELES, CA – JANUARY 14: Billy Kilmer #17 of the Washington Redskins drops back to pass against the Miami Dolphins during Super Bowl VII at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles, California, January 14, 1973. The Dolphins won the Super Bowl 14-7. (Photo by Focus on Sport/Getty Images)

20. 1972 Washington Redskins

The Redskins switched to this scheme in 1972 and have largely stayed the same since. It was the right move, because while the other uniforms in franchise history are solid, this is a classic.

PITTSBURGH, PA – CIRCA 1979: Running back Rocky Bleier #20 of the Pittsburgh Steelers wrapped up by Vernon Perry #32 of the Houston Oilers during an NFL football game at Three Rivers Stadium circa 1979 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

19. 1979 Houston Oilers

The Luv Ya Blue Oilers hold a special place in Houston history. They were also one of the best-dressed clubs in the sport, with that oil rig eliciting great memories.

18. 1990 Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles have a league-high seven entries on our list, but this tops the charts. The kelly green, the eagle clutching a football on the sleeve, it was all working.

17. 1986 New York Giants

Some will argue with this and say the “NY” uniforms of both the current age and the 1960s should be the Giants’ highest-ranked uniform. Lawrence Taylor and Phil Simms disagree.

TAMPA, FL – OCTOBER 24: Benny Malone #32 of the Miami Dolphins carries the ball against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during an NFL Football game October 24, 1976 at Tampa Stadium in Tampa, Florida. Malone played for the Dolphins from 1974-78. (Photo by Focus on Sport/Getty Images)

16. 1976 Miami Dolphins

The Dolphins had a nice look for most of Dan Marino’s career as well, but the original uniform was the best. Clean, good lines, and aqua for days.

KANSAS CITY, MO – NOVEMBER 1969: Joe Namath of the New York Jets contemplates a play during a game against the Kansas City Chiefs in Kansas City, Missouri. (Photo by Focus On Sport/Getty Images)

15. 1968 New York Jets

New York is changing its uniform again, leaving these classics in the lurch. Hate to see it, because Joe Namath’s duds remain tops.

SAN FRANCISCO – DECEMBER 4: Defensive end Fred Dean #74 of the San Francisco 49ers and teammates stand in the huddle waiting for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers offense to come to the line of scrimmage during an NFL football game December 4, 1983 at Candlestick Park in San Francisco, California. Dean played for the 49ers from 1981-1985. (Photo by Focus on Sport/Getty Images)

14. 1981 San Francisco 49ers

The wide stripe. The red and gold playing off each other. The interlocking “S” and “F.” All of it works together to form a classic. Winning four Super Bowls didn’t hurt, either.

DENVER, CO – JANUARY 17: Quarterback John Elway #7 of the Denver Broncos rolls out to pass against the Cleveland Browns in the 1987 AFC Championship Game at Mile High Stadium on January 17, 1988 in Denver, Colorado. The Broncos defeated the Browns 38-33. (Photo by E. Bakke/Getty Images)

13. 1987 Denver Broncos

The Broncos pulled off orange as a primary color better than any other team in NFL history. By a wide margin, at that. Plus, the helmet is magnificent.

12. 1986 Cleveland Browns

The rare team where the white uniforms are the best look. Cleveland has a clean, crisp uniform in the above shot. The current uniforms? Yikes.

BALTIMORE – DECEMBER 19: Quarterback Bert Jones #7 of the Baltimore Colts in action against the Pittsburgh Steelers at Municipal Stadium on December 19, 1976 in Baltimore, Maryland. (Photo by George Gojkovich/Getty Images)

11. 1976 Baltimore Colts

The Colts have long been identified by the white helmet adorned with a blue horseshoe. From Bert Jones to Peyton Manning and Andrew Luck, it remains timeless.

SAN DIEGO, CA – SEPTEMBER 19: Quarterback Len Dawson #16 of the Kansas City Chiefs hands off to running back Ed Podolak #14 against the San Diego Chargers at San Diego Stadium on September 19, 1971 in San Diego, California. The Chargers defeated the Chiefs 21-14. (Photo by Charles Aqua Viva/Getty Images)

10. 1971 Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs haven’t altered their jersey much since moving to Kansas City in 1963. There’s little to complain about with it, and the arrowhead is iconic.

DALLAS, TX – JANUARY 2, 1972: Defensive Tackle Bob Lilly #74 of the Dallas Cowboys breaks through the line going after quarterback John Brodie #12 of the San Francisco 49ers January 2, 1972 during the NFC/NFL Conference championship football game at Texas Stadium in Dallas, Texas.

9. 1971 Dallas Cowboys

America’s Team. Of all the uniforms, none are more recognizable both on a national and global scale than the Cowboys.

NEW YORK – CIRCA 1968: Quarterback Jack Kemp #15 of the Buffalo Bills hands the ball off to running back Wray Carlton #30 against the New York Jets circa 1968 during an NFL football game at Shea Stadium in the Queens borough of New York City.

8. 1965 Buffalo Bills

Buffalo won two championships in the American Football League with this uniform. Frankly, it’s the standing buffalo that sets it apart. Great helmet.

7. 1979 Los Angeles Rams

The blue and gold was always a tremendous look in Los Angeles and later S.t Louis. Moving away from this uniform was a terrible idea that, luckily, has been rectified.

MIAMI – JANUARY 14: Quarterback Bart Starr #15 of the Green Bay Packers hands the ball off to Donny Anderson #44 against the Oakland Raiders defense during Super Bowl II in Miami, Florida on January 14, 1968. The Packers defeated the Raiders 33-14. (Photo by Focus On Sport/Getty Images)

6. 1967 Green Bay Packers

A timeless uniform. The Packers have looked the same since playing under Vince Lombardi in the 1960s, and there’s a reason for that. You don’t mess with perfection.

CHICAGO, IL – NOVEMBER 1969: Linebacker Dick Butkus #51 of the Chicago Bears ready for action against the Cleveland Browns November 30, 1969 during an NFL football game at Wrigley Field in Chicago, Illinois. Butkus played for the Bears from 1965-73. (Photo by Focus on Sport/Getty Images)

5. 1969 Chicago Bears

The last of the three Bears appearances on the list. What’s different from the 1985 set? No GSH on the sleeve, but most noticeably, the “C” is still white here.

SAN DIEGO, CA – CIRCA 1980′: Wide Receiver Cliff Branch #21 of the Los Angeles Raiders plays carries the ball following teammate Bob Chandler #85 against the San Diego Chargers circa mid 1980’s during an NFL Football game at Jack Murphy Stadium in San Diego, California. Branch played for the Raiders from 1972-85. (Photo by Focus on Sport/Getty Images)

4. 1980 Oakland Raiders

The Raiders have one of the league’s classic looks. Here, Cliff Branch is headed goalward in the silver and black, embodying the essence of the uniform.

TAMPA, FL – DECEMBER 13: Lee Roy Selmon

3. 1976 Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Creamsicles are always controversial. Some may despise it, but no jersey in NFL history has ever been talked about more. In our opinion? Awesome.

PITTSBURGH, PA – NOVEMBER 15: Cornerback Rod Woodson

2. 1992 Pittsburgh Steelers

The Steelers have had virtually the same uniform for 50 years, but it was best when the numbers had more of a block look. Rod Woodson wore it quite well.

1. 1965 San Diego Chargers

The classic. How the Chargers ever went away from these beauties remains a sad mystery, but it’s the best look in NFL history.
