Eagles vs. Giants: Philadelphia will wear both black jerseys and black pants

BREAKING DEVELOPMENT

John Geliebter-USA TODAY Sports

It was revealed earlier on Monday that the Philadelphia Eagles will be wearing their black alternate uniforms against the New York Giants this upcoming Sunday on October 12. What we failed to mention, however, is that the Eagles will actually be wearing black pants as well (OMG!)

Sunday will mark the first time the Eagles have ever worn the all-black combination of jersey and pants. Usually the Eagles wear white tights with their black jerseys. Philadelphia has also used the combination of black jersey top with midnight green pants. The Eagles don't typically use black pants for any of their uniforms. Until now.

As I mentioned earlier today, the black jerseys seem to be pretty polarizing. Do the black pants make things any better/worse?

For reference, there are several teams that employ the all-black jersey look. The New Orleans Saints and Baltimore Ravens both come to mind.
